To Do

Exams are finished!! Yay!!

Now I can get stuck in to more enjoyable activities. I did a heap of dyeing on Saturday, and got some good results. I used up all of the dye I had, so I’m going to order some new colours this afternoon. Which means I’ll have to buy some more fabric. I also did some overdying of pieces I wasn’t thrilled with, and they came out really interesting, so I’ll do some more of that too.

I have 4 weeks off before the next semester starts, so I have a lot to cram in. I think I’ll start making lists of things to do, otherwise I will waste the time away watching Dr Phil and Oprah. And playing Sonic the Hedgehog, which I am very, very good at by the way. I love Sonic.

Here’s my list for today:

Go to Woolworths and return the chocolate roll cake that was mouldy when I opened the packet. I know it only cost $2.18, but it’s the principle.

Buy some other food and stuff.

Buy AA batteries for the TV remote.

Go and see if I can find fabric with Australian wildflowers on it for the Australiana quilt border.

Order fabric dyes – I hate mail order, there is nowhere in Brisbane that sells dyes retail. Don’t they know I am all about Instant Gratification??

Pay the electricity bill before they cut the power off and I freeze to death in the sudden cold snap we are currently experiencing.

Ditto for the house insurance. I just have to find the bill for it first.

I think that will do me for today.

I got a phone call last night informing me that I have won a prize at the Sydney quilt show for Hexaholic. I don’t know what I have won (they don’t tell you in advance, they just try to lure you to the opening) so I will find that out on Wednesday. I hope. I wonder if they’ll call me again and tell me or if I have to wait until they post it to me? It might be on their web site, I suppose. The suspense.

OK – gotta go, the supermarket awaits!


  • CONGRATS On the win!! How very exciting!

    Where do you buy your dyes from? Are you using procion? If so, the June special over on Dale's site (The Thread Studio, in Perth, but they express post) is several dollars off per jar.... http://www.thethreadstudio.com/specials/special.htm
