Announcing the blogtoberfest re-sew-cool giveaway winner!

Well I did this the old fashioned way – names in a hat and my five year old daughter  Wanda was the “barrel girl” and drew the winner…...and the winner is....hueisei from the Love it Sew it blog! She is a beautiful stitcher and quilter! Can’t wait to see a picture of the finished re-sew-cool gingerbread man and gingerbread house Christmas ornaments. They will be winging it all the way to Malaysia.

Yesterday I was at the Finders Keepers market at the Exhibition building – yes me and the rest of Melbourne! I helped out on the Gleaners Inc stall for the afternoon.  Markets are so fascinating. I find it endlessly interesting to people watch – babies dribbling on things unbeknownst to their mothers who are engrossed in shopping, many a bored boyfriend being dragged around and lots of mums and daughters.   

I sold a few of my neon hexie necklaces ....and that gave me some pocket money....which was timely because I went out last night to see a local band, The F100’s

It’s the first time we had been out to the local pub in years! Literally!! The F100’s played some toe tapping country in the front bar. As their bio says, they draw "from the honkytonk well of Lefty Frizell, George Jones, Merle Haggard & Buck Owen's Bakersfield stylings". Perfect! Nice shirts too.

It was a late night and then we walked/stumbled home.

Needless to say I am feeling it today. Ouch!

Don't forget the Sweet by and by giveaway is still going!

  1. What fun you had last night. Lefty Frizell, Buck Owens and that whole bunch are some of my favorites. Glad you sold some of your necklaces and congratulations to Husei. What beautiful ornaments she'll be making.
