I must admit, I usually have a fairly quiet after-hours life, but the last few days have been quite eventful. On Saturday I went to the Rose Street Artist's Market and met the very lovely Justinamaria. It was such a highlight to see the lovely things she's made with my little-ol' fabric in person. Very flattering.
Then, on Monday (a public holiday here in Melbs) we drove up to Ballarat in our "trusty" 20yr old Skyline, and whilst traveling at 110kmph in the pouring rain one of our windscreen wipers flew off and hit another car! And not just the rubber bit, but the whole swivelly head bit! We had to drive the rest of the way leaning to the side. It was actually quite scary. We tried to drive back to Melbs that night but with the dark and rain and crappy headlights and a scary near miss with a truck, we had to turn around and wait till morning.
Last night was a free ticket to The Australian Ballet (thanks mum!), tonight is Aqualung, but by far the best thing to happen of all... we booked flights to Japan!!! I can't believe it's actually going to happen! I haven't traveled overseas in almost 10 years, and have always, always wanted to go to Japan. I'm so excited. I'd also love to hear any suggestions/recommendations of places to visit from anybody out there! Anything with an art/craft/design slant would be extra cool :)
And, because it's just plain wrong to post without a picture, here's a little wip I'm working on :)
