In honour of the day I'll be eating my croissant with Vegemite. Mmmm.
Well, it's a flurry of organising and packing and cleaning out the fridge here before we head off to the Italian Alps for a week of cross-country skiing. We have found a small, quiet village where we can play and walk (on groomed tracks) and cross-county ski as a family - and bonus - it's forecast to snow on Sunday. Wheee!
I'm packing my current hand sewing project so I can get some more work done.
On the craft front, I have been sewing lots of half square triangles...
And trimming them up to make chevrons (all part of Jennifer's fab Chasing Chevrons quiltalong).
I signed up for Rachel's Curves Class, which starts the first of Febuary. I'll miss the first few days, but I'm sure I can catch up in good time.
Here's something random - did you know there are scorpions in France? I didn't, but now that I've found a few around the house (none bigger than my thumb) I guess I have to. This fella was trying to back out through one of our downlights when he must've got stuck and then (ahem) fried. He's been there for ages because I'm too scared to unscrew it and find the whole family. Sounds like a job for the mister to me.
Have a wonderful week folks. I hope to be back in early Feb with lots of snowy photos to show you!
And happy Australia Day! Mwwwwa. (that's supposed to be a kissy sound)
