Where has the week gone ?

Started new job at Pirtek (great so far guys), got some superfine mill-spun merino (soooo beautiful - thank you Eric!) and wove a scarf with a beautiful pattern wot I made up, wove one half of a serape/ruana/tunicy wrappy thing (whatever you want to call it, it's exciting because it's a complete garment, not an "accessory") - I just have to do the other side (and I'll be using some of Trace's beautiful buttons on it!), attended my daughter's 29th birthday party (beaut food, shame about the service and the attitude of mine hostess at the swanky caf), went out for dinner @ the Levee (yummy, tasty, good company eh Norma ?), had Lalu and Fergus to sleep over, took Mum shopping, did a day for Steve and the guys @ Paneltec, finished Georgie's Sparkles scarf for her birthday, did some housework (I actually vacuumed and cleaned bathroom) and finished a novel and wove another scarf for the Winter Catalogue.  Whew !!!!!

Too busy to take piccies, but if you look at Shazza's Owl Tea Cozy below, he's gone to live at Oatlands in The Shed ! http://www.duskyforge.com.au/  Lalu's late birthday pressie!  I reckon he'll be very happy.
