Here is Goodie Goodie Gumdrops finally all ready to go to the show and at the bottom is her special brooch. There is no machine or hand stitching on this garment by the way - the cami is from my book - all embellished between metallic netting, the bolero is knitted, the skirt is knitting and hand dyed lace and the brooch of course is knitting scraps and embellisher. Her bag is also fron my book and is knitting and embellishing. The name is because when we were on Waiheke Island Ian got himself a Goodie Goodie Gumdrops icecream and me something else (not with such an exciting name) and didn't share a lick with me. Actually she looks a little dumpy on the dummy but she really is sleek unlike her maker.
Wild and wintery day here today and every time Ian has climbed on the roof to clear the gutters, it has rained. A good day for packing suitcases and cleaning up.
I am all ready to go away with a clean notebook waiting for me to fill it up with all the plans I have refused to acknowledge all week.
In case you are wondering where we are going - we are off to Sydney tomorrow for the Quilt and Craft Fair at the convention (or Exhibition) Centre in Darling Harbour. If you are coming, call by and say hello - we are on Stand I19 which is where we always are. You can see samples from my book as well as all the other great stuff we have. We are taking our umbrellas with us....
But first we are off to Luigi and Martine's for yummy Italian food before we go to Bruce and Kazuko's to watch the rugby and the yachting.
