I was a little slow to start but took part in Friday Night with Friends sewing last night as hosted by Cheryll from Gone Stitchin. Pop over to say hi, check out Chez's sewing for charity, her brilliant new quilting tool & to link to the 60 others stitchers who too part in our sew-fest.
As I said, I was slow to start but as I was home & footy is now on in Perth on a Friday night at 4.30 pm (don't get me started, this is way before I am normally home from work!) at least I started early and as is my way finished late. I saw the Doctor late afternoon & the lady at the Pharmacy gave me my script & said to me 'I hope your going home to bed now', to which I replied, 'yes, footy starts soon.' As I'm walking out, she's laughing & saying 'oh, no, that sounds like a fate worst than death' - maybe not the best statement to make in a pharmacy to sick people! It wasn't a bad fate - loved the game & thank goodness, after the debacle that was round 1 tipping, I got the tip right & the margin almost spot on too. (Aren't you pleased it is only Round 2 - you are going to get this footy obsession roller coaster ride of raving for the next six months!)
Back to stitching, I started a new stitchery, tracing the design, picking a key fabric & matching some threads to it. It's secret squirrel sewing but here's a peek of what I accomplished.
Later in the night I did the final binding on another secret squirrel project. Good thing it was only binding as I had to have my wits about me as Jeremy Wade & I again entered the wilds of Guyana in search of the RIVER MONSTERS. That makes our 5th encounter for the week. I almost shed a tear at the end when they said the scale taken from the massive fish caught gave DNA that proved it was a new species of that fish until then unknown to science & never before seen. It's been a great week Jeremy but next week hopefully it's back to work and you will have to shoulder the weight of catching big fishies for the world's enjoyment on your own! (Before you ask - yes I am still running a temperature so hallucinations may have played a part in the last week.... only that can explain why I watched my first ever episode of The Bachelor too).
So as you can see, it's been a big week, big night & I've done some big stitches. Check out what our sewing friends have been up too, I'm almost certain there will be beautiful things to see & many blogs where sanity reins supreme!
Remember - any advice on catching the big one, ask me how!
