It's really helping me pass the time here though. I think I might sew her onto an apron or something.
I just love the detail on her little head piece
- Do you enjoy visting you future in laws?
- Are there personal habits about your partner that annoy you
- Do your friends approve of this marriage.
ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE QUESTIONS! Crazy! But I reckon we passed with flying colours (bit awkward if we didn't!)
Anyways, Mr Honi and I made it out to the Crows Nest Fair on the Sunday which was awesome. They block off the whole main street and have food stalls and markets. I only bought 2 things - a pair of fisherman pants (i LIVE in these during summer) and this little purse from "Love Libby"
We also had a little splurge at the FLower shop and got a few hanging baskets with Fuschias in them. The flowers are sooo pretty!
Maybe it's just an Adelaide thing??
ik'm a little bit sick of this palce now. I'm sure it's super lovely if you're not cooped up in a hotel with no means of transport and limited funds

Cinema Paradisio - this was actually Mr Honi's fave movie. He hired for us to watch and i simply loved it. A young kid befriends an old man who runs the local cinema. Simply gorgeous and subtitled.
The notebook. The most romantic, lovely wonderful love story ever written. I think i used an entire box of tissues on this one!!
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle stop cafe. A wonderful little story - again just a nice story - with a killer twist!! Juno - The music in this movie makes it a fave from the get-go. A really sweet movie. She's funny and quirky and NATURAL like a teenager should be! (maybe not the whole teenage pregnancy thing i guess though)and last but not least, a childhood fave. The Labyrinth. David Bowie at his finest. This is a must see for anyone who likes fantasy stories, and Jim Henson.

As I am stuck here for 2 weeks (luckily i get to pop home to Mr Honi and StevieB (the cat) on the weekend) I decided to bring down some hand sewing. So i'm trying to applique the letters for the baby alpahbet quilts. It's a bit tricky but twill pass some time!

6 unique things about me:
1. I have 5 separate tattoos. When you see me, you wouldn't expect it at all. And they're all hidden!! (3 butterflies and 2 flowers if you're interested!!)
2. I used to be able to pick up almost any instrument and play 'mary had a little lamb' within a few minutes. I haven't tried it in a few years though
3. I had my galbladder taken out 2 years ago. This is known as a "fat and forty" operation. Fair enough i could lose a little weight, but I'm not fat, and i'm only 28!
4. I was dyslexic as a child. I think I just grew out of it- but it was quite ditressing when I was younger though
5. I love to listen to Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin - actually all "oldies" hits.
6. I'm double jointed in my elbows
ok. so now I will tag....

excuse the glare on the image - it's a picture of a picture. I LOVE the old chair in the background too. Wish I knew where that apron went to - the fabric is devine!!
Did you sew as a child? Leave me a comment or link to some pictures!

In the words of Jodie from Ric-Rac 'I'M A TOPPER" (can't call myself a "qiulter" as yet as i haven't quite reached the quilting part )
I also decided to put all my threads onto proper spools as they were getting all tangled
