When you wish you'd just handed over the money.

Some of the girls, namely Kath, Lisa , Sniff and myself, along with the lovely Mr. Charlie, took a lovely road trip on Friday just gone to the Mornington Peninsula to frequent a fantastic event called Christmas at the Studio.

Great hilarity ensued on the journey there, so much so that we were told, "Be quiet, please, I can't hear my movie!" from the smallest traveller, even with headphones on head!

There were lots of lovely things to buy.

There was lovely food and drink to buy too! 
And balloons!!!

One lovely thing to buy was a Handmade Advent Calendar. 
It was $75. 
"Too much!", says I, when I can easily whip a couple up myself!!

I went to task on my project that very night. 
By the next day I was about ready to stab myself in the eye. 
What a bloody faff! 
Cutting out all those ruddy numbers, pulling off all the iron-on sticky paper, pressing them onto all the pockets then sewing around the little buggers almost did my head in. 

So this is it. 
They're getting one calendar and I'm putting two chocs in each pocket!

Next time I shall be mindful of how long "handmade" actually takes. 
And fork over the money!!


  1. Are you kidding me! The one you have made looks amazing. I would love yours way better than the bought one. K xx

  2. Well it was an entertaining afternoon, what with my Foundation piecing and your advent calendar.............!!!! And as for the road trip..........bring on the next one!!!!!!


Lovely to know someone out there is actually reading this!
Go on!! You know you want to...!
