I don’t think you’ll get the full six this time but here goes:
- I’ve used the Library Database so often I know my 14 digit patron ID number off by heart. Our lovely library has been in this same building for 150 years.
- I own around 100 coffee cups.There are blue-and-white ones, christmas ones and cat ones. Some are blue and white with cats. A lot are blue and white and japanese. Any others were gifts from people who don’t know me very well. I’d have more but I’ve broken quite a few since moving up here … concrete slab under floor not very forgiving :[ btw these are stacked three rows deep!
- I ADORE paper and paper products but hardly ever write letters anymore.
- I have [ I’m told ] an unusual memory for faces. Not necessarily the names to go with them mind you, but generally I know WHERE I know someone from, even if it’s from years before.

sewing up: christening robe. Started last year for Riley before I knew he was Riley, but Christina has one already so it’s sat around for ages.That’s quite okay cos this one’s going in the granny box for Nadie. Still need to sew up the Brea bag.
crochet: just starting on the border [FINALLY] of the never-ending baby shawl that matches the christening robe. I’ve been going around and around and around for months [ on and off ] and it takes ages to do a row given that there’s about a thousand stitches per row now. The lace edge for the shawl is the same as but deeper than the edge of the robe… and this one’s going into storage as well. By the time I had my kids, my mum couldn’t knit any more and she hated not being able to do things for them to wear. It may be quite a while before Nadie needs this stuff and I’m determined that she will have it, whether I’m still knitting, crocheting and quilting by then or not.
quilting: about to get back to quilting the Challenge quilt after dinner. [ or maybe not … starting to feel that a veg in front of the teev is in order ]
Plans for tomorrow? Going to Melbourne with DS#2 intent on meeting up with DS#1 Stephen [ plus DDIL and DGS ] and DD [ minus The Boy who has to work ] at Nonna’s with a view to celebrating last week’s birthdays
