We just finished hosting an international student for 3 weeks from Kobe, Japan. A sweet girl, a little quiet, but gave us lots of stuff. I love stuff.
I also love receiving mail too. Maybe it's the small pleasure of busting open an envelope and seeing what's inside - e.g. finding out after 3 months I am totally on track with my target daily water usage. Yes, these are small pleasures.
I don't generally like junk mail though but I deal with it. I am definitely not so good at tolerating other people's junk. The Japanese kid stays for 3 weeks, becomes a member at Crown Casino and although she knew she would leave the country shortly after, uses our address to receive mail. What the...?

Wow two whole posts back to back!
I realised I hadn't talked much about my drawings recently. I have been doing a lot of mad sketching to improve on my skills. I still love it and I love seeing the progress I make, albeit slowly but surely.
What do you think of my octopus girl?
The Stitches and Craft show - Melbourne. It was my first visit ever and it was great. I bought some fabric, had a wander around and saw some installations. Doilies and potpourri aren't really my thing but there were a lot of other cool things to see, and touch and perve at. I wish I took more pics though.
Oh and of course visited Lara and co and hung around like a groupie to watch her interview.
