Yesterday being my "day of serenity" (i.e the day I don't go to my real job) I went to Melbourne.
I stitched my way there on the train and was met by my Official guide.
I had such a great time! We visited the Buttonmania sale (mmmmm buttons by the kilo) Clegs and of course Tessuti.
We traversed some interesting places, looked in doorways and up alleys, had coffee with another wondrous blogger and talked almost non-stop.
When Sooz had to head back home I ambled about a bit more, walking in the sun and smiling away to myself like some kind of village idiot.
I bought the most delicious wools for softies at both Tessuti and Clegs and have plopped them in the sewing room where they can sing little their little softie-to-be songs to me while I work.
So far that killer green is singing of froggies....
Today I hung about in the cold and finished up a few bits and pieces before I turned my attention to the impaled softie heads. I have been brain-bubbling away on this little guy for a while , so today he got a body
and some curious little paws
He is destined to be a special present...and tomorrow he will be remade in the not-practice fabric, given some more details and by early next week, ready to go - quite possibly also grinning like a village idiot!
