Yep I Am Still Here

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I posted on my blog. Maybe it is because it is winter and life revolves around work and keeping warm, mind you here in Western Australia winters are very mild compared to other parts of the country/world. The Almond tree over the fence is chock full of blossom which means that spring should just be around the corner, well actually as tomorrow is the 1st of September that is spring but I mean the warmer weather, lighter mornings etc.

So what has been happening since I last posted....well.

I have had a birthday, next year will be the big 50 and frankly it doesn't freak me out but ask me that again in 2013 LOL.

I have been doing some hooky happiness. I found this wool at a $2 shop and couldn't resist the colours. It will eventually become a throw for the back of the couch and more than likely the dogs will claim it as their own, but with the wool being acrylic I can just toss it in the washing machine.

I received in the mail this fabulous magazine and leave it out on the coffee table for inspiration along with all my other crafting crap LOL

In the left of the picture is the new Lizzie Kate Mystery Sampler I have part one and two to complete and the only mystery will be when will I get this finished LOL

I have completed my exchange piece for the scissor fob exchange but can't post any pictures until it arrives at its destination, at this moment it is either over the Indian Ocean or Europe. I am now in the process of doing my exchange piece for the Halloween Exchange and that is going to be this weekends project along with watching season 3 of Dexter!

Oh and I have created a new page on my blog for Celtic Banner. I have joined a SAL with 5 other stitchers to try and get this piece finished. I don't know what it is about this piece but the mojo just isn't there with it and it will be stunning when it is finished. The other stitchers either haven't started the piece yet or like me it is languishing in the unfinished pile, so fingers crossed this works.

So really the last 6 weeks or so have been work, come home, work, come home oh here is the weekend blah blah blah. Oh hang on we went to a quiz night last Saturday night, we hadn't been to one for so long and it was fun except that you could hear the questions better when you were in the toilet rather than when you were at your table which was hilarious and I can't believe out of 6 people on our table I was the only one who had read Harry Potter and could answer the questions on this topic.

Well if you have stuck with me this long on my ramble thank you so much and I promise that my next blog post wont be in 6 weeks time.
Ciao for now...............
