So Excited! SQUEEEEE!

This time tomorrow I'll be really excited (ok, in all honesty I'll probably be running around like a chicken with my head chopped off trying to find something 'vital'). I'm already getting butterflies just thinking about it.

This weekend I'm getting together with some of my most favourite crafters and friends for a weekend of knitting, crocheting, sewing, spinning, dyeing, stitch marker making, eating, drinking and nattering (notice, I left out the sleeping, I'm fine with late nights :) )

It's going to be my first time to be childless overnight since Penny was born Feb 2007 (and I was obviously pregnant with her before that and experienced some sleepless nights prior to her arrival)

I have a swap wrapped all ready to gift, along with boxes and piles of things to take, including a spinning wheel and bobbins, fibre for spinning/dyeing, yarn for knitting/dyeing, dye gear (I'm not very sophisticated, it just equals a bottle of vinegar, food colourings and an avent steriliser), stitch marker making gear and the patterns and my knitting needles will be added closer to the time as they'll be in use tonight.

I can't really add a pic of my swap yet in case the swappee happens to see it, though I don't know who will be the new owner of it - it's going to be a lucky dip type swap (and people have bandied about the idea of it being a dutch swap where you can take the swap off someone else!)

My husband on the other hand this weekend will be at home with the 2 kids, he is looking forward to it though and is already planning trips to the library and to feed the ducks.


  1. Have a blast Julia! You more than deserve it!!! It will be so much fun!!!!
