Should I or Shouldn't I ?

Okay I love Halloween and I love purple, but this year was going to be the year of non stash buying and stash busting what I already have but this has just been bought to my attention........

So the big question is should I just go ahead or stick to my resolution of stash busting instead of stash buying.................

Queensland Flood Relief Fund - UPDATE


I am sure that many of you by now have heard about the savage floods occuring in QLD on the East Coast of Australia.

Well the wonderful blogging world is standing up and raising money for the Premiers flood relief program by auctioning and raffling off many wonderful handmade items. The program is going to be really taking off after Friday so please click on the flood relief button on my side bar and see what is happening.

Also Jodie over HERE is having a raffle and the prize is her wonderful handmade softies.

So I encourage as many of you as possible to donate one way or another and help support the residents of Queensland.

Made It!

Well today is Friday and only 20 mins to go before I leave the office and start my weekend. It has been a funny week one day busy and the next day hardly even getting an email :(
Weather wise one day this week we peeked at 38 deg (100ish) and when you walked outside you would have throught you were in Bali the humidity was so bad! We are heading back up to the mid 30's over the weekend and it looks like it will be continuing well into next week.
Well my friends I hope you all have fantastic weekends and I will leave you with something that made me giggle this week :)

2011 TUSAL & Other News

Totally Useless Stitch A-Long....TUSAL hosted by Daffycat! Now some of you that follow my blog aren't xstitchers so rather than bore you all with the pictures and details I have created a new page for the TUSAL.

I have just read online that Gerry Rafferty has passed away at 63. I just loved the song Baker Street...

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well another crazy day, you’ll drink the night away
And forget about everything.

This city desert makes you feel so cold
It’s got so many people but it’s got no soul
And it’s taken you so long to find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything.

You used to think that it was so easy,
You used to say that it was so easy
But you’re tryin’, you’re tryin’ now.
Another year and then you’d be happy
Just one more year and then you’d be happy
But you’re cryin’, you’re cryin’ now.

Way down the street there’s a light in his place
He opens the door, he’s got that look on his face
And he asks you where you’ve been, you tell him who you’ve seen
And you talk about anything.

He’s got this dream about buyin’ some land
He’s gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he’ll settle down, in some quiet little town
And forget about everything.

But you know he’ll always keep movin’
You know he’s never gonna stop movin’
Cause he’s rollin’, he’s the rollin’ stone.
And when you wake up it’s a new morning
The sun is shining, it’s a new morning
But you’re going, you’re going home.

Well 2011 Is Here

Yes it is the usual post from me this time of year. It is HOT here in the west! Today is supposed to be about 40 which is over 100 in the alternate temp taking gauge LOL. The air con and fans are on, the house is closed up tighter that a maximum security prison and I still have to go outside soon and bring some washing in off the line - I am procrastinating as usual about doing this and that is why I don't do new year resolutions LOL

I hope you all behaved yourselves on NYE, I managed to stay awake until 11.30, we spent the night sitting out the back listening to a band play at a party 2 doors up the street. We were invited to the party but just couldn't be bothered LOL

Only 2 more days then it is back to work after being off since Christmas Eve, but why is it now that I am only starting to sleep in and relax.

In a previous post I mentioned that I was joining a challenge for 2011 to try and get rid of some UFO's that I have lying around, well I have made a new page just for this and have uploaded a couple of pictures of what it should look like when finished and where it is up to and let me say that it is pretty sad but hopefully posting updates and pictures will spur me on.
