Saturday well spent.....

Well I had a testosterone free day during the day yesterday as all the males of the household were out doing manly things.
What was I to do, it was a rainy Melbourne day perfect to sit inside and sew!
 I needed to get organised with my Christmas swaps as I am stressing about them. Plenty of time but you still need to be a little organised. I had to cut into my Park Avenue fabrics. They are just so beautiful I so didn't want to. I will have to be very frugal as I don't want to waste a centimetre.
Here is a little sneak peek. One gift is finished.
Last night DH and I went to see Celtic Woman. It was amazing, absolutely amazing. The girls voices were just angelic. They were quite moving at times. The 'pixie' playing the violin was just so great she jumped all over the stage and played the whole time. Really loved all of it. The band and support singers were wonderful too. First class!
Next live show we are off too is U2- talk about variety.
Tuesday is Melbourne Cup Day in Melbourne. We get a public holiday for a horse race, who am I to argue. Another opportunity for some relaxing and crafting.
enjoy the rest of your weekend
cheers
Marina

Hi Marina, Glad you got a chance to sew, it was too wet to be outside. Celtic woman sounds great. Enjoy the rest of your sewing.

Oh I wonder if that is going to be as lovely as the swap gift you sent me last year? I can't wait to get it out again as it is simply gorgeous.
