Yep well Julian got shortlisted for the Queensland Premier's Literary Award. No big prize. But a beautiful gold sticker to put on his books that announces... "Shortlisted for the Queensland Premier's Literary Award 2010."
I told Anna (Anna Bligh dears, Anna Bligh - yes, a direct descendant of Captain William Bligh, Queensland's Premier, of the Queensland Premier's Literary Award fame)
...that she ought to consider the Queensland Premier's KNITERARY Awards for next year.
She is knitting up a cosy for my Portraits of a Tea Cosy project. We are like THIS.. (said with fore finger and middle finger wrapped around each other in a big digit hug) ...me and Anna... yes we are.
Well how could we not be? She is a knitter.
We had intended to travel to New York for two weeks in October but ... tricked you.
We are going to London and then Ireland instead.
Does that mean I have to ungroup from the New York Subway Knitters on Ravelry?
The Knitting and Stitching Show London is on from 7 - 10 October.
I'll be there just for a look/see at this stage - but maybe to play tea cosy with you. Not sure yet. Working on it.
It is spring on our verandah.
All these photos taken in the space of about an hour.
Yep that is my finger. Just hoping that is not something too offensive hanging off it there.
No he is not tame.
He is just GAME.

I'm not sure that cat knows it's spring yet though.
What WAS my rule about cats and wool?
