A funny snippet of my life, a reminder that I DID go out once - because last night it was pre-school music night, had a great time, not sure if it was as much fun as Big Day Out in 94, just a different kind of fun! It did make me realise just how long it's been since I went to see some live music, must rectify that (if I can handle the noise that is!!)

Might be a bit of a vacuum around here.
Just popping down to Melbourne for a few days .... lots of pics upon our return.
Showing another Parker photo, taken in my sewing room, at night, I like the shadow this makes on the wall.
Also wanted to thank everyone for enjoying my stash (gosh, that sounds so rude!) It was fun playing, but I don't think I need any further encouragement!!!

Not sure if this makes for interesting blogging, but I'm really chuffed to have received the 'Love Your Blog Award' from the multi-talented beccasauras. Thanks honey - I'm really touched! I get to nominate 5 blogs that I heart at the moment - yay! And these are my 5 nominees: The Silver Bee The Ruth Spoon (a perennial favourite!) Badskirt Knitting Sprouts Teacups on Treetops I've also been tagged by The Little Things to do the 'if meme'. List 5 things that could have changed your life. Link the person who tagged you, tag 5 others. So here they are: 1) If I'd drank less in the 80's I would be able to remember, with great joy, the reckless abandon! 2) If I'd married my first boyfriend, I'd be bored shitless by now. 3) If I'd bought a bunny instead of a red cattle dog, I wouldn't have to sweep up a summer coat, AND a winter coat 3 times a day. 4) If I'd gone back to work when Parker was 6 months old, I wouldn't have been there when she saw her fist butterfly, or felt rain on her face for the first time. 5) If I had been born a boy, I would make a point of thinking with my heart, and not my dick. tagging: Bugandpop Midgeemoo Loz and Dinny Oh, and I nearly forgot, Curly Pops, and thanks to you for pointing me in the right direction with the above blogs. That's all!

Choosing some faves, the one above is a pillowcase that I've been meaning to use as applique for ages. perhaps the process of going through my fabric will motivate me to finish all the projects I've started, and maybe start some new ones.
See Mikes for more fabric-stashers!

Playing along with Pip's week of 'Show and Tell'.
Head over to Mikes to see who's playing, and what they've got in their stash! Fabric Porn it is!

Back before minimalist interiors invaded the scene, this is how Australians aspired to decorate their houses.
I love this book, hours of fun have been spent pouring through these pages!
