Yes! I went BACK to the Bookfest today. This time Hubby went with us, and I also took my little "Crate on wheels" with me so I didn't have to lug heavy books around with me. Hubby laughed at me at first, dragging my little wheeled crate behind me. He wasn't laughing after he went berserk with Ludlum books and asked if he could put them all in my crate. I picked up a few very old crochet pattern books. Some of the people on them were quite scary and Hubby and I had a laugh trying to outdo each other on who could pick the most hideous pattern out. I won with two men in bright checked knitted sweaters. Scary indeed.
So I got LOTS more Teddy books. Looking at making a few more miniature ones, and also my son asked me if I would make one for him. I have a beautiful piece of (fake) fur fabric waiting to be made into a Ted so I think I'll use it for his. But not until I have finished the one I am making at the moment. The one that has been sitting dismembered and forgotten for about three years now.
So most of you would have seen the news of the cyclone that is up in north Queensland at the moment. I have a lot of family and friends up there but thankfully all of them have fared well. This was one MASSIVE cyclone, bigger than the one that went through and destroyed everything in the same area, five years ago. It's now continuing towards central Australia, and has been downgraded into a depression. Well I'd be depressed sitting in central Australia to. Not much there but dirt and sticks.
Meatball scissors STILL have not arrived.
SPRITE TURNING SHADE OF CERISE!!!
Oh and it seems we cant stop growing pumpkins. Remember how excited I was when the first one grew months ago? Well we picked the four that were ripe. Buy the way they are heavenly. Now there are FIVE more! And they are growing at an alarming rate, you can almost SEE them getting bigger. (like trifids) The vine has taken over the whole of the garden, down the lawn and is now threatening to go over the fence into two of our neighbours yards. I have told hubby he will need to pull it back into our yard.
