Bad undies

The last five months or so at chez Ric-Rac have been a pain. Mr Ric-Rac got retrenched and well, it sucked big time.
Its kind of like, when you wear really bad know that constant irritation, the needing to keep adjusting and smiling and pretending your undies aren't riding up your bum crack.... when in truth you want to rip them off and throw them on the ground and stomp them into oblivion while screaming your head off ? yep, that feeling !

Anyway ! Mr Ric-Rac started a shiny new job this week so things are looking up.

I have been busy working on some stuffs for the Daylesford Makers Market and possible Etsy shop update.

I've been dreaming of new softies and one of them makes me so excited! He is sure to be my favourite ever softie.

I, and my gorgeous helpers, have been ironing out the wrinkles in the Parsley and Beet elephant pattern and the Disco-Bot pattern.

I have been playing with Mr Gocco

and right now things feel like the oldest daggiest pair of comfy undies around.

I hope you guys are all "comfy undies" at your place too.

Bus stop - weekend

Small-Bot thought about the girl at the bus stop all weekend.

He thought about her when he was cleaning.
He thought about her when he was cooking.
He even thought about her when he and Cat-Bot were relaxing.

What's hot + What's not

I was just blog-blithering when I read Claire's post and though I'd jump on in!

So here's what is hot and what is not this fine Wednesday evening.
Ducklings !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
These are from Kate's blog but seriously ever since she showed them I have been a woman possessed. I have been thinking of ducks non-stop. Stay tuned, it may takes six months, it may take a year but I have a feeling something duckish is cooking in the back of the craft brain...
Winterwood felt - I will never buy any other felt ...EVER !
Finding a supplier of wool fabric with names like these. Not only do I want to sew with them, I want to eat them as well. (umm maybe not the peacock)
This new project - Totally hot right now - trust me.
Mind you it may very well end up on the NOT list next week if it doesn't work.


My email server doo-dad. Seriously, when they set me up a zillion years ago it was with a generic account that had my name in the address, I didn't like it so they gave me a new one. The first one was deleted.
HOWEVER, when I send an email I always have to change to the new one (via a drop down menu thingo).
Obviously I have accidentally forgotten this at times and sent emails from the (apparently) deleted account.... But wait ... it seems those message do go through -YAY but then people reply to them and HEY PRESTO I can't get the replies because the email account doesn't exist. I get a message saying "Nine messages could not be received " or some other crap. If you know there are nine messages just let me read the bloody things.........stupid email

So, if you are awaiting an answer from me about something (anytime in the last 3yrs) ...please check the email address in my profile - that's the only one that works for me....and please send your message again.
and if you want to join in and share whats hot and what's not at your place, visit Claire and pop your name in the linky blinky thingo... me? I'm going to shovel in some dinner and head of to craft at Annies...

little bit

Today was a "little bit' day.

A little bit of crafting in the car

A little bit of despair at the mess

A little of me blabbing on about myself over here
(with thanks to gorgeous Linda who says such nice stuff about me)

and a little bit of that sinking feeling that comes with having to go back to work tomorrow.

Does it always have to end in tears?

You know what it is like by the end of the school holidays.






You need to engage the United Nations Peace keeping Forces just to get them in the same photo!
