The City of Melbourne (which has been my home for nearly all my life) has a day off for a pretty big Horse Race known as the Melbourne Cup, first Tuesday in Nov. Its been going for 150 years this year. Its a BIG day for the Racing game and Melbournians, lots of whom have dressed up in their finery and gone swimming in the wet wet grass that is the track this year. Some even go in 'fancy dress'. Quite a lark :)
Not being much interested in anything equine my interest is only in passing. However ...
1. I get a four day weekend.
2. I have actually rested on the weekend and have crafted today.
3. Have been mentally preparing myself for reports season at work.
4. Can now begin the countdown to the end of the school year for me and the boys, who actually finish after I do (snigger!)
but, 5. Am able to do all the washing in one day but because it is 'still' raining and! will have it keeping company with us, in the house, for the next few days. Yes it is Spring here (I think...).
Crafting up some bunting out of a great Vintage Tablecloth I found last week.Wanted to try some thing different. Cut it according to the print to make up the flags.
And thought you might enjoy the cute framed, embroidered Hollie Hobbie I came across in a local Op Shop yesterday. The blue fabric for the background is a little more intense than the photo has come out as. Very Cute!!
Hope you liked my sharing this week.
What have you been up to?
(and by the way, I hope your horse won)
