Well I am here - at least

tss picked on me on the weekend for being slack on my blog. She couldn't be right could she.

What have I been up to - picking "stuff" up at garage sales and the like - much more than I like to admit. However, it all has a good purpose. Oh and an unexpected, but delightful two week drive up to Queensland to see my relatives and friends. naturally, I had to visit the op shops and garage sales there didn't I, and got some bargains (see tss.

I have long thought that the Mens Shed movement was a great idea. But why should the men have all the good ideas. How about a Chick's Studio? Can't you see it - a place where we have all the big equipment available, community resourced library of patterns and recipes, a kitchen to play around in, and lots of comfortable lounge chairs to sit on and craft and chat. Well that is my dream - and keep looking here for more ideas forthcoming...

Ohhh - my camera has decided to fritz itself - have to find a way around that, and I promise you some pictures of my finds over the last month or so....

Welcome back! Would love to open a place like that in Canberra - maybe we should plan it?
