I’m an idiot, I forgot to tell you in the last post, HUGE was AMAZING. Just damn amazing. He’s a singing, dancing, charming machine. Just awesome. I had goosebumps for almost half the show. The dude can sing.
Thank you for the birthday wishes, I had one of the nicest birthday’s I can remember. Lots of lovely friends, lots of laughs, spoilt rotten and yummy food.
I took myself off Saturday night to see Little Miss Sunshine, as of now it is my favourite film for 2006. A gorgeous, funny, lovely film and excellent soundtrack.
Petite’s mummy received her shower pressie, PHEW Petite hasn’t arrived, got in just in time. Seems Petite’s having her own party inutero and doesn’t want to join the realy world.

I made some slight alterations to the pattern which include: moss stitches on cuffs, double crochet on flaps and wooden beads (beads from Scablight for you Aussies) as closures.
In answer to Alison and Kate’s comments in the last post about the pink "nipple", well, let’s just say that was my first shibori attempt……it looks like a flat cows udder and is now part of Spud’s "next to me on the computer" chair. So imagine it without the cat fur. Everyone that sees this little beauty in the flesh giggles. I’ll photograph it for your entertainment another time 🙂
I’ll leave you with a link to a couple of friends new skate/surfer label, Rough Diamond Clothing. Quality stuff, and I’m enjoying covers of a couple of songs at the moment. Two in particular. Higher Ground from "Gilles Peterson Digs America" and Little Birdy’s cover of "Six Months in a Leaky Boat".
Have a great week!
