Sewing Bikkies

You've got to love these biscuits!
They were given to me for Christmas and I've only just opened them
(yes, still fresh, they were in a foil bag) and I love them.
Even better is the fact that they are quite yummy - my boys tell me
they taste like Animal Crackers, but can't say that I've ever had any of those.
They are doled out selectively, after all, you can't waste these on people who don't appreciate the finer arts of life, now can you?

Scissors, needle and thread, spool of thread,
a pin cushion (I think - what else could it be?) and buttons

and a sweet little tin to put some sewing things into.
I need another little container......LOL!

I just need to get rid of that yukky label without scratching the lid....
any suggestions on how to do this?

I Hate ...

... having to clean up palm fronds!

Don't get me wrong, I love palms, but they are such a pain when they drop their fronds. They are too big to put in the rubbish bin, so it necessarily means a trip to the dump.

It also means an unsightly storage of them for the days prior to taking them to the dump...

... and there is usually more than one pile of them.

What's your least favourite part of the garden?
