I'd been bitten. Bitten by the reading bug. I have to admit that I don't read books all that often because I find that I get consumed by the story and then all I want to do is read. It started with the recommendation of True Blood from my Crafty Mamas. So I bought and watched Seasons 1 & 2. I like an interesting story and to be honest I'm a goth on the inside, so I'm totally cool with the whole vampire/supernatural genre. After watching True Blood I ordered the Sookie Stackhouse books upon which the series is based. Currently there are 9 books. I've now read them all. I was supposed to wait for the plasterers to start because I can't sew while they are doing that type of work, but I started reading, and I couldn't stop.
So now I need to play a bit of catchup. In the first week of February I went to The Craft Room meet for the Hills/Norwest area. I thought it would be good to get outside of my usual craft circles. It was a fabulous and diverse group of women. If you look at the pictures in my link, you will see the back of me. I didn't actually spend that much time chatting because I was cutting out an outfit that was going to be a baby gift which I will share with you now since it's gone to its home.
All the pieces are from the Farbenmix Zwergenverpackung. The top is Hilco's pink rayure knit. The dress is Robert Kaufman Cool Cords in an apple print. The leggings are cotton/spandex knit.
It's been really rainy and wet, so I haven't managed to take photos of the other things I've made lately.
And the house, it still incomplete. I'm completely over it. I really hope we see some major happenings here in the next couple of weeks. My mother arrives at the end of March. The house just has to be finished by then!
