A Nice Night In Town

No news on the stitching from but last night Bren and I decided to get away from the bushfires and head into the city for the Moonlight Markets down at the harbour and see the city Christmas lights . Not great photos but you get the idea:)

I've been RAK'D
What a wonderful surprise to find in the mail today. Carol RAK'd me with this wonderful Scissor fob. I love it!!!!!! She is such a clever, lovely friend:)

Well the fires are just getting worse. They are backburning just over the ridge from our house to try and stop the fires from reaching any townships.

At night all we can see is an orange glow over the Ridge. It looks like a volcano. God willing the weather will improve soon so the wonderful fireman up here can take control of this monster fire storm and no homes will be lost.

On the stitching front. I have just put the last bead onto Thimbleina. Purl The Knitting Fairy will be next.

And a bit more on South Seas Mermaid.

It's been a while
Well, I'm back. I can hear the thump from Carol fainting from shock when she checks in and sees I am finally posting again. LOL.

Sorry I have been absent for so long. No excuses really. Life has just been so busy lately but it is all settling down now and I hope to be able to post more regularly.

On the stitching front I have just started stitching South Seas Mermaid from Mirabilia. I am stitching her on 32ct Taupo from Country Stitch. As I loath stitching the arms on all Mirabilia designs I have done them first. Is it just me or does anyone else find Mirabilia arms hard to do?

Well we have certainly had Winter and Summer in one week here. We were starting to head into the mid 30's (celsius) when suddenly we got hit by what the weathermen called an "Antarctic Blast" and the temps plummetted to single digit figures and we got, wait for it....snow. Snow in November!!!!. Hubby was saying if we wish really hard we might get a white Christmas. LOL. No such luck I'm afraid. It is back up to 35 degrees Celsius today.

There is a bad bush fire burning about 10kms from here in a township called Mt Victoria. The smoke in the air has been terrible. Luckily no homes have been lost yet, but the hot weather is making it hard to contain. Even the snow didn't help. I still can't belive it, bushfires and snow, at the same time.

Well I know this is a short post but my working day is done and I'm heading home. I will try to post again very soon. Who knows, maybe even tomorrow. LOL.
