What a lovely weekend of playing finish off and catch up!
Pixie and Cory have gone off to Lake King for
gokarts, Brandon is home but shut away in his cage, and I am...
doing lots of catch up with housework and, best of all...
my craft work.
I had done some stitching recently and wanted to make a nice
shoe bag. I had been struggling to find the time and this weekend....
I've done it. My shoe bag is finished. My main aim is to use up as
much of my stash as I can. I had this lovely floral piece
of material for such a llong time, so I decided that I would
use it and I love the colours.
I have even been able to use some more beads and ribbon from my bulging
stash, so I was pleased about that. The shoe bag fits 2-3 pairs of shoes
and uses less space than the boxes they were stored away in.
I have these pieces of material on the ready for a secret and special
project so I can only show them. You have to be patient for a while.
Today I did a fair bit of folding, cleaning and sweeping, early in the
morning so I could go for a gentle drive to Toodyay...taking my partner in crime, Heather, with me. This weekend, in the Avon Valley, the annual Avon Descent is being held. The Avon Descent is a white water race using canoes and power boats. Entrants from as far as South Africa enter this event and it is a big deal for the towns in the Avon Valley.
The race is over two days and when the first day of racing is done, the entrants of the
contest camp in Toodyay over night. So Toodyay is just bustling with activity on this weekend. Look what Heather and I spotted...we thought he was real to start with.
