Aviator Hat

Janelle wanted the aviator hat for camp so I finished it off with a couple of hours to spare on Friday, sorry I don't have a photo of her in it but you do get a view of my back yard complete with washing line.

A good time was had by all at camp, tiring but a lot of fun just the same. Not much knitting got done so I am in withdrawals a bit today and NEED TO KNIT!! As you know the WWW Sock Festival was on over the weekend and unfortunately I had to miss it but you can read all about it over at SUZIS BLOG as she was there and took some great photos also. Two of my fellow S'n'B ladies won prizes, well done to CINDY and CATHY. looking forward to hearing all about it tomorrow.

I don't know if I have mentioned or not but my sister is getting married in less than 2 weeks time so I will be busy getting organised for that as I am her matron of honour and Janelle is one of her bridesmaids so of course she is getting very excited. The one down side to this is I have to wear a dress, I'm a 159cm well rounded girl who doesn't do dresses but thankfully the style of the dress is one suited to all figure types. Tomorrow we are going shoe shopping which should be fun, I LOVE shoes, we are going with a flat heel as none of us wanted anything uncomfortable which I was happy about as I don't know if my back would have coped real well with wearing high heels all day.

Come fly with me!! What a great hat, it's beautiful!!!
Glad you and all the girls had a good time at camp - there is NEVER any sleep for the grown ups!!!
Oh, shoes, I love shoes, and handbags. I am not a dress person either, but I have spotted a pattern I like and I might whip myself up a dress when I feel my brain is up to it!!!
See you tomorrow!!!
