A mad and quite silly bird
It is fairly obvious when I havent done much and I come up with another bird. I love doing these birds and I was trying out a new pen very cheap which seems to work, it is not water soluable which I like. I have had a very busy week, my sister down for a few days, which meant a fast trip to Adelaide and back on Monday, meals to cook, house to tidy etc and a few drives around to see things she hasnt seen for ages, my shoulder didnt like some of the driving. Then back to Adelaide on Thursday to take her home and spend the night with P who always looks after me well. Friday morning I was off early to the Stitching and Craft show and had a lovely time collecting bits and pieces, caught up with Ian and Dale of the Thread Studio and bought quite a lot, I love it when I can actually see what I am buying although I did have a long list from their catalogue. When I go to these shows I get a bit confused by all that is on offer but I found some lovely wool felt and some other bits and pieces and met several friends who I didnt know would be there. I like this show it is smaller and not as crowded as the big quilt show and it seemed easier to get into the stalls and browse, admittedly I had got there when it opened. Home tired, and have been on the go all day today, visiting my niece and nephew and their partners and children who were down at the Gorge farm at Normanville. I had found some old letters of their mothers which I thought might fill in a few gaps for them. I am going to be a great aunt in a few weeks time too which I hadnt realised since my sister died I have been trying to keep in touch but it isnt always easy. Better go and organise the cauliflour in cheese sauce to go with the corned beef for dinner.
