I made it home….
A long flight, over 12 hours of travelling and the only thing crafty I managed was to thread the ribbon through the pink top so M_F and I could do the buttons when I got in.
Seriously wish I was allowed to crochet on a plane in Australia.
Anyway – I have been home a whole three days now and have acheived much.
Firstly, the run to Canberra Show to put everything *in*. Done. Stickybeaked at a few entries – we’ll see them better on Friday.
Secondly, signed the first round of paperwork for Lanoak . WOOHOO!!!!
Thirdly, caught up with Arcadia and she enabled my crochet habit to the tune of 15 balls of Cosy Wool to make an Afghan for her eldest. Good plan!
Fourthly, hit two yarn stores and dropped… well… more money than someone who is applying for a mortgage should have!
Also went to see The Mist last night. I have spoken before of my fondness for Frank Darabont / Stephen King movies i.e. The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. But I’ve got to say this is one movie that I will not be buying. Both Shawshank and TGM leave you with the feeling of hope and purpose at the end. The Mist. No. Really – No.
Something I have promised to do before is introduce our two Orange Mogs.
Here we are:
This is Pfennig:
Who is your bog-standard DSH and adores a HARD scratching. Pfennig also has her very own crocheted blanky. Not kidding, M_F requested one as Pfen likes to treadle the red one I made for the parentals’ bed.
This is Centime:
you can see – she is pleased to have me home! Centime was my sister Bob’s Christmas present about 4 years ago. Yes – cats are very definitely for life in our family!
And now…. one of the major reasons for me coming home now was for Canberra Royal.
And I mentioned previously that this was the first year I was going to enter in the photography section as I am quite proud of the shots I take….
We went to the opening of the Exhibition tonight, my first words when I walked in through the door were “Mum.. Mum… Mum!!!” :
For a photographer, I’m a pretty good crocheter!!!
First Place Landscape Photograph.
That was *very* unexpected!!!!
Crochet results are still a day away… I’m dying!!!!
Love to you all!!!!
