This week I flew to Sydney to visit my gorgeous friend Cherie. It was a pretty quick trip, as my family pines for me when I'm away, so I cannot be gone long. Poor Miss K was waking at night to ask if I was home yet.
While there I visited the amazing Remnant Warehouse. Gosh, the fabric heaven I was in! I will have project pics of the most amazing fabric made into a delicious dress I am yet to finish because I broke Cherie's sewing machine. Well, it broke when I was using it, she says it wasn't my fault, but yeah, I believe this might fall under the same banner as 'whoever smelt it dealt it'.
But what I did get done was a reversible hat in the Make it Perfect: Lazy Day Hat pattern. I cannot say I would make this pattern again. Infact I left it in Sydney with Cherie. There were lots of swear words coming out of me during the joining of the brim to the hat step. I was not happy with the process. It turned out fine enough, but I prefer to craft with patterns which make me happy, and this wasn't one of them. For more able people (i.e.. those not known for being unco), it might be a breeze. But hand-eye co-ordination isn't my thang, so this didn't go as nice as it could.
Here are some pics of the hat though, I am happy with the result And Miss J is very happy with her new hat.
I had a lovely mini-break. I missed my family something chronic and was desperately over-tired the whole time thanks to a 3 hour time difference, but it was great to hang out with Cherie doing some crafting for a few days. And Corey had a treat for me and upgraded my flight home to Business Class which was just wonderful of him. I got to hang out in the Business lounge before the flight - which was great because my flight was delayed by over an hour. They had yummy brekkie and coffee - which was most needed at this point with a 6am Sydney time start, equating to a 3am Perth time *yawn*. Then the flight was comfy with the big chairs I could lie all 6ft of me down and have a snooze. I've informed Corey that I only want to fly Business Class from now on. I'm pretty sure I just won't be flying anywhere any more.
