The Great Divide

I feel kinda bad.  Asuka sits opposite me in the studio and I just put a divider between our desks.  I just hope she knows it's because I want to put some inspiration images up around me and not because I don't want to talk to her.  Because she is very nice.

The Mustard Neck Warmer

Melbourne Winters are notoriously hideous- rainy, windy, grey, enough to give even the most emotionally stable SAD disorder.  But this Winter has been particularly awful, especially considering that it actually started 2 months early. So what's a girl to do?  I think the only way to manage the encroaching blues and insatiable appetite is to rug up and start knitting.

This Modern Life

So i have finally been published in Vogue! Woohoo! Yep, my letter to the editor was published.  I love that they titled it 'Modern Woman'.  Fabulous. I didn't make the letter of the month but I blame that on my verbosity. I have simply been reading far too much (ever since i started a book club) and I have this habit of taking on the style of writing of the book that I'm currently reading. It's sort of like when you're at a pub talking to an Irish person and you realise you've started talking in an irish accent. Embarrassing for everyone all round. But, hey, it mustn't be all bad if i got published, right?

Stack Stand

I once spent over $250 on knitting machine yarn. And I didn't even have a job. And then about 2 weeks later I went to the Bentleigh op-shop and found even better colours for $2 a cone (that's how yarn comes, in cones). Mustard yellow! Texta Orange! Aggressive Beige.  It was all there- thanks probably, to someone dying. (Sorry, but it's true and I'm sure that whoever she is, she'd be glad I was using them well because her son/daughter OBVIOUSLY had no idea of their value.)  I still have the yarn and it still comes in handy for all sorts of things.  Including holding together bits of cardboard to make a computer stand.
