For Me, Today Is Thursday Disguised as Friday

Falling way behind on the blog (photos to come). Craft weekend was a blast: five girls, two sewing machines, 2 banana cakes and The Shining on Saturday night (digitally remastered version)...there was screaming (Mavis) and lots of OH MY GOD! Run, run, run...and several Tony imitations (RED RUM, RED RUM)...but huge laughs. How strange is Shelly Duvall? As Two Bear's pointed out "She looks like a human muppett".

All up I managed a small coin purse with a zip and another little zippy (bigger purse) with lining and all. Sewing in the zips was exciting and frustrating. I am not great on a sewing machine, but it fun having a go. I had a lot of help from Nora! - who leaves today to climb an active volcano in Indonesia (like you do). Go NOrs!

Another weekend of laughs ahead. Tomorrow Two Bears, Mavis, Jan(ome)- named after her new sewing machine, ObeOneJanome and Tezza head off to a small country town with a mega quilting shop and lots of crafty goodness. This time I'm just taking my knitting (a very trippy pink scarf)and wine.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
