Like Diane recently, I often find it's hard to think of a relevant and unique title for my posts. I mean, how boring is "My weekend". But I'm afraid that would be the most relevant.
A major event for me last weekend was meeting up, face to face, with yet another blogger buddy. Catsmum lives near Castlemaine, and I was delivering to her the special CD Meow made for her blogger buddies. Before I left I had to plan a little cross country route to Catsmum's place. Here's a photo of my maps, the CD on the left and a gift book I made using Japanese stab binding. I couldn't resist using my ginko leaf craft punch to decorate the front cover. Catsmum and I share a love of Japanese themed items.
We had a lovely afternoon tea and I got to see the amazing quilts that she makes. Here we are in front of one of the many displays throughout her house of her blue and/or cat-related collection. (Now I'm thinking: why didn't we take one in front of a quilt? But you can visit Catsmum's blog to see those, I guess.)
Our dam was not as full as we thought it would be, looks to be half full, but that's 100% more than what it was in summer, and we're not complaining!
Here's a view from the top of the dam, our sleeping shed in the foreground. The weather was kind. And yes, it was a good weekend, despite......the Blues losing again, but at least they played competitively. See the car parked there? That was where I was sitting listening to the game late Saturday afternoon. As the Blues came from behind to finally take the lead in the 3rd quarter, I gave a celebratory blast on the horn. This came as rather a shock to the Man Who Cooks, who was quietly tending the campfire nearby. I saw him give a little jump out of the corner of my eye. I tried to control my celebrations after that, and alas, there was not much further cause for horn blowing in the last quarter as the other team got back into the lead.
