I got this great invitation to go to a dinner in Melbourne. Very exclusive, very expensive. It is on in conjunction with the Dior exhibition at the art Gallery.
But I also got a 'better' invitation. To go and stay a few days up at Toowoomba with my Embroidery Stitching friends. It was a no brainer really. So, while I am stressed out over the purchase of this unit and getting ready to go overseas, which is also stressing me out, they sent all my tickets and paper work to Boston USA, I have decided to leave it all and go away for a few days.
Now I have to decide what I will work on. The small purse for the children's classes is one. I have to finish that shawl is another and there is those dolls clothes still hanging over my head. But just for fun and because I really don't have time to do it I thought I would crochet some toys.
At the Quilt Show, Kerry Lord was promoting her books and I bought a copy of "Edwards Menagerie". Over 40 animals, that should keep me going and I have a small bundle of alpaca wool that was given to me as a gift and I have been waiting for just the right thing to use it on.
Looking on the Toft web page I see there are lots of other things as well. There are lots of adorable kits. Those dogs are tempting and there on the top right hand corner is Charlie. Have to do that at some point.
I think this could be the start of another obsession. There is a great interview with Kerry Lord and some lovely images here
