I have actually been quite busy the last couple of days, despite feeling ridiculously bad. Thanks to a combination of hormones and too much diet coke I found my self awake far too early on Thursday morning. After lying awake for a couple of hours I decided to get up and go to a dawn service. It was either the cold, lack of sleep or I picked up a bug because I have had a hellish sore throat ever since.
Yesterday I went to check out a quilt show at St Paul’s Anglican Church and then spent the afternoon helping out at the Vision Patchwork stand at Art beat (Ipswich Art Festival). There were markets, bands playing, lots of activities for the kids. (For those Doctor Who fans out there – there was also this – http://www.hireatardis.com.au/.) It was nice to see so many people out and about enjoying themselves. Though I ended up trapped on the wrong side of the street from my car and had to wait for the hour-long parade to go past. I could have tried to walk round it I suppose, but I wasn’t sure how many streets were closed off and I wasn’t really expecting it to go for that long.
I have actually been sewing again and have been getting quite a few smaller things finished. And…wait for it…I actually got round to opening an etsy store. Then I put all the things I had finished up for sale in the etsy store (etsy.com/shop/Helsmart). And while I was doing all things electronic I also added some extra photos to my zazzle store. I am turning into a regular capitalist. If anyone has any tips for marketing on line stores I would love to hear them.
Apologies, because this blog has kind of been a bit all over the place, but I am going to leave you with a rather cool photo. It was taken on the way to the train station on Wednesday morning. I walk for a couple of hundred metres along a path that is separated from the train line by a chain link fence and on Wednesday the fence was covered all over in spiders webs that had been created over night.
