No nothing

Ah, it’s been a while and still not much is happening. It’s still way too hot. My city’s had a record number of days over 35C/95F this summer. Work turned off the air con over the weekend and my lovely peace lily suffered.

It’s come right back after a day of careful watering, which makes me happy. 🙂

I’m in the process of moving this blog to Blogger. WordPress is a far better system, but all the stitchy bloggers are over on Blogger, and the system’s no-reply comments thing is getting annoying.

I hope you’re all keeping cool (if you’re Australian), warm (if you’re American), dry (if you’re British) and sane (if you’re human :P).

Red walk

I haven’t had much time to stitch lately. I’m not especially busy, I just lost my routine and things keep piling up (like dishes, cleaning… everything).

But I did go for quite a nice walk the other day on Red Hill. It’s called Red Hill because, well…

It’s a red hill.

Very red.

I saw a few birds, a blue tongue lizard and these lovely fellas.

I hope to get some stitching done tonight, so look out for a progress pic soon! 🙂

First challenge

What should arrive in my mailbox today but the Fox Collection catalogue. Temptation! Can my newly forged Stitch from Stash resolve resist this glossy-paged enticement?


Luckily, my little girl Watson whispered an idea in my ear. The catalogue was shreded to gaily coloured strips and playtime commenced. 😀

And so this is Christmas…

The silly season begins. I’ve already had my girlfriend on the phone in tears. This is such a stressful time of year, everyone is so frazzled.

I hope you and yours stay safe and sane during the holiday period. I’ll see you on the flipside.

I should post a picture of a christmas ornie here, but I haven’t even dragged mine (yes, all two of them) out of storage this year. It’s been that kind of month.
