First up for the day, another birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎂 LACY. I hope you behave. 👅😜💜
I'm off to Aqua fit first thing this morning, I'm really looking forward to it.
After that, I'm coming home and sewing a giraffe.
That should be fun eh?
QUESTION: I can't decide which way to go with the first giraffe...
Which option? Purples, or Yellow/Orange?
I will leave you with that to ponder while I go swim. *smiles*
Aqua was lovely today. Like usual, I never really feel like going, but once there I actually enjoy it.
It's a great way to start the day.
And I'm starting to feel like one on the group, and have lots of lovely chats with various people.
Today I tapped one lady on the shoulder and told her I would come to her place tomorrow for morning tea. And then I told her she didn't need to provide anything to eat as I was on a diet... Sounds good eh?
NOT. It was the wrong lady!!!! I thought she was a lady who had invited me to morning tea at last week's class! Too funny, cos the lady this morning just said 'OK, I live at..."!
I apologised for just randomly inviting myself to her place and laughed it off.
Maybe I will go to her place one day, ya never know.
Can't sew yet, I've got to post a couple of things first. So I'm off out again, but should be home soon. That giraffe-to-be is waiting.
Fook it. I have come to a halt on the giraffe already. I don't have felt for the mane and tail tip. And I'm not going into Hamilton for a tiny bit of felt! It can wait till I next have to go in, which should be when Keera's glasses arrive. That should be in the next day or two I hope.
I went for the purple for the giraffe by the way.
It's a better contrast I think.
It actually took quite a while to trace out and cut the pattern out onto the fabric, longer than I thought it would take that's for sure.
I don't think I will be whipping one up in a day!
I've now got a damn headache, so will just blob out for a little while. It's the heat and humidity getting to me.
I'm glad some of you realised just how funny it was me inviting myself to a total stranger's home for morning tea, and her agreeing! ha ha ha!
I started sewing some bits of the giraffe together tonight. Fiddly shitty thing. I found some felt after hunting for ages that I thought would do (brown) and stitched it onto the head, then the head parts together, yadda yadda.
Then the bloody felt fell to bits! WTF? Old, thin felt. So I had to unpick the lot. Total waste of an hour of my time. I've stopped now. And will find better quality felt or polar fleece to use in a day or so.
My eyes are having trouble focusing, so time to head off to bed.
