I had a lovely few days away. The weather was cool and the company good. The mornings were foggy,
and the clouds as they rose over the escarpment, memorable.
In the evenings the skys were the most amazing colours as the sun set over the western downs.
I was introduced to another woman who is travelling to Houston for the festival and she said,
"Oh yes, I leave in under two weeks".
"She must be going early."
Now I have looked at the calendar, it is less than 2 weeks before I leave. It is all shaping up to be a disaster. My paper work and tickets have been sent to Boston for Guatamala, (I live in Australia.) No paper work has arrived for my classes at the festival. I have an email confirmation which says I have to have the paper work for the classes, the email is not good enough. But they have deducted the payment for the classes from my account so I am hopeful that this might still work out. I think I need to make some international phone calls and I am not good on the telephone because I have a hearing problem. I must transfer money into another account just in case the other credit cards don't work. (My husband has given me another 3 credit cards on top of the 3 I already have.) Stress, Stress, Stress.
I need to get the samples finished for next years classes and they are not going well. The drawing are great, the stitching isn't bad but I have chosen the wrong colours for one piece and will have to start again. That is the one that needs to be finished in the next couple of weeks.
The furniture is still being delivered for the city town house and I need to buy a dining room set and my daughter keeps suggesting very expensive ones. The washing machine has just broken down and as I have had it for some time I think we will have to get a new one. No one delivers to the island so that means carriers and stress.
On the upside I do have a new suitcase and I have got all my clothes organised. I have cleaned out my wardrobe and the back of my car is loaded with donations for the charity bin. My new ipad is packed ready and my camera is working well. (Got to find that passport.)
I finish a dummy run on the crocheted bunny, very cute.
Look at that fat tummy, and I love the tail.
(I still need to make clothes for the girls bunnies.) I used left over yarn from the shawl. Lots of adjustments to make and the next ones will be white rabbits. Of course the only crochet hook I don't have is a size 3, the one I need for this wool.
I think it is time to make lists and start to find some control in all this mess.
