I decided that on Melbourne Cup Day, I would do nothing. We had no invitations, I had volunteered to be on call at the Day Job, and decided that, in the absence of going in to work, I would do nothing in particular. Stos went to the hardware shop to get some stuff to fill holes in the second hand doors and to attack (prune) one of the roses in the backyard. I was assured my presence wasn't required so finished the last book in the Millenium series, The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest (I think I am the last person in the universe to read this). I felt a bit flat after this - what am I going to do now after finishing this series that has kept me riveted for weeks? Well, keeping up with some commitments might be a good idea. I started on a secret project, then as the light deteriorated, I've started on my Softie for Mirabel. I'm making Zing the Polite Cat from the first Meet Me at Mike's craft book.
As usual, the Quick Unpick tool has had a bit of a work out but overall I'm happy with the results so far. The only thing that struck me is that his face looks more owl like at the moment - hopefully sewing on his whiskers and mouth will help! For more creative inspiration, head over here.
I am an office worker trying to get in touch with my creative side. I like to make things and cook but spend more time thinking about these things rather than doing them. I play lots of sport and will always elect to walk the dogs rather than do things around the house. I buy far too many books yet never have anything to read. In 2010 we knocked down our house and rebuilt it but the journey of gardening and organising our space continues.
