Well, the parcel arrived this morning and was suspiciously fat for just stickers. Lovely Heidi had also included some vintage black white (and a little bit red) fabric which I'm tempted to whip up into a new messenger bag for my trip, a copy of Clotilde's Sewing Savvy (you'll notice there were no new magazines in my In pile last week so this will stave off withdrawal symptoms quite nicely), and a handmade felted bookmark and beautiful grey and red flower brooch. Thank you Heidi, you're far too generous!
2. Thanks also to J (and her guest pass to The ANU Film Group). I finally saw Ratatouille yesterday. For free. Fabulous film, just as I expected. If I wasn't being so frugal I might just have to buy it on DVD when it comes out.
3. I went to Spotlight at lunchtime today to track down the interfacing that was out of stock at both Hobby Sew and Lincraft (turns out Spotlight don't stock it at all anymore). I discovered Spotlight was having a one-day-only 20% off everything sale so I got my boring black bagmaking cloth super cheap. Waahey!
4. The Fisher Paykel fix it man came. The washing machine took one look at him, fluttered its eyelashes (I swear! I saw it!) and spun and pumped perfectly first time. Trollop. Since I had the chap here anyway and wanted my $110 worth I got him to check things out and, with a squirt of WD40 up the bum (of the machine, not the fixit man) he pronounced the damn thing healthy as could be and able to last for years yet.
