What a month. I am still pretty terrible at blogging this year. I was hoping to blog more often but where does the time go and I feel sometimes that my knitting/sewing is progressing just as fast as my blogging.
I need more time off work I say! Now that I am a married woman, I keep telling Reece that I want to be a Stay at Home Wife and craft all day. I did say I would cook dinner for him…
I am sorry that I am short of wedding photos at the moment. Most of my family and friends have seen a few pop up from our photographer www.mikesemple.com.au on Facebook.
I did promise to post photos of my hand-made bouquet. I liked how they turned out.
Also a couple of pictures of my friends helping to ice our wedding cake, though I realise now I don’t have a photo of the decorator herself.
Magnet didn’t really enjoy his time in the cattery. He is getting better, a lot more relaxed now we are back to a semi-normal routine.
Reece could be heading off for a short term contract next week. They are still waiting for a government department to sign off on something so the start date is not in concrete. The work should be interesting but the idea of an exploration camp is not my idea of fun.
What I am excited about is that I am off to a sewing class this evening. It’s one day a week for 6 weeks at the TAFE (polytechnic sort of thing). It’s a beginner’s course. I really want to improve my current sewing techniques, like sewing in a straight line and, putting in zips. I want to work up to adjusting patterns to fit better and making things look more handmade than homemade.
We spent a few nights in Daylesford after the wedding. As promised by Reece we stopped at some known geology related sites and visited a couple of mining areas.

I am still plodding away on Shannon's Jersey. Here is Magnet trying to help me with it.
