Hello all :)
And I do say all, because I came back to this today and realised that people were actually reading this now lol. Thank you for taking an interest :) I'm writing you all a very, very long one to compesate for my lack of new posts.
Ok, so I'm finally back, which is the biggest news of all. Relay for Life was fun: I dressed up as a Weeping Angel (foolishly spending three hours hastily painting a set of cardboard wings and experimenting with talcum powder and pomander instead of getting much needed rest the night before). I rocked up, freshly face painted and eager to make some money for cancer research :) then I realised one massive fault in my plan for walking laps around an oval for hours at a time.
Mainly the wire that I had sewn into the hem at the bottom to weigh it down.... which kept catching at my ankles and feet as I walked. ^_^ My lack of forward thinking amazed me, I can tell you. We won first prize on the day though for theme and most amount of money raised by a Curtin Guild club (hence the attachment of this rather fetching shot of my cleavage)

Regardless, I made it. I am alive, kicking and sewing... Plus I won a digital camera for most funds raised in chocolate selling so more pics will be up soon :) and with my new sewing machine (Igor was on his last legs and finally carked it, rest in peace my friend, the last 5 years have been wonderful) I plan to kick back into it.
Thats all for now, but the next post won't be too far away :)
