Perhaps I spoke a bit prematurely

It appears all that hooraying last week may of been too excited since my car blew up on Sunday and was deemed unfixable by Monday. So after having the same 1 car for 8 years we now have 2 new (used) ones in a week – not fun!

The sewing machine hum had not been heard for over a week, unheard of around here. Once the antibiotics were finished the sore throat has returned with a vengeance and taken my energy with it. There has been some crafty goodness of the stitching kind though. 011

The hair and face redone and worth the effort, pattern here.

My dreaming girl is nearly done too, just have to decide what she is dreaming of, perhaps a rainbow? Pattern here.

Other exciting news, heading off to Stitches and Craft on Friday morning, Stacey has even threatened to teach me how to knit. Even though the cash is pretty thin at the moment after the car carry on, my excitement has not wanned! If you are going to be around let me know so I can keep an eye out.

I dropped into stitches today and said g'day to Stacey and others. She was trying to teach someone how to crochet and then admitted to me that she doesn't even know how to!
