Welcome to my 100th post!
First up, as promised yesterday, a pic of the finished halter top for Nadie. Well, okay, not 'finished' finished ... it still needs ribbon through the area under the bust and buttons on the back but the crochet part is done. The colour in the first photo is a bit dull, the second is about right. I'm still not sure why Nadie chose this colour. Yeah, it looks great with her colouring but this is the girl who hates all things pink and has done ever since she could talk. I don't wear pink either. Ever. So what am I going to do with 3 more balls of the stuff? If I make myself something pink the world may just come to an end.
Of course even if the world is finito, for most people today is devoted to the Boxing Day sales. There aren't a lot of opportunities for post-christmas shopping frenzy up here, unless one travels to Bendigo, so basically Dave and I just food shopped and picked up a couple of smallish christmas bits and pieces. I think that's all next years' Kris Kringles taken care of. Actually, the fact that I had to food shop at all is the unbelievable part. Ma in law usually sends everyone home with about 3 days worth of food but not this year. A bowl of soup for Dave's lunch and some roast pork was about it. No lasagne. No zuccini fritters.
This is almost as earth shattering as Nadie wearing pink.
The world must be ending.
Nothing else will explain this departure from normality.
Today has been dreary and overcast, last night was cold enough that I had to get out the winter jammies and bed sox, and appropos of nothing at all, I'll leave you with a photo of the santa I made a couple of weeks ago and for the family: a nice pic of dave.
Hope you all had a wonderful christmas.
