I am a Buzzy Bee!

Said with an NZ accent of course! Do you recognise him?? He sits on my computer, fiercely protecting my hershey kisses!

Today has been absolutely manic at work. I have heaps on at the moment but always lurve to be given more work, particularly with a 1/2 hours notice to interview and set up aptitude tests for a candidate!

Anywho, I survived and decided I needed to take a 10 minute sanity break. Not much to report on the craft front I am afraid. I realised today that with OCC overseas my completer/finisher mojo has gone. Need to get motivated though, I have a few things to finish in a hurry. Luckily there is a long weekend this weekend so I should be able to knock a few things off my list. All I have to do is remember to stop adding projects to it! :)

Looking forward to starting the Clap(otis)-a-thon with Brown Pants, Sadie and Lance and OCC (I am sure she will be in it!). At this stage we are looking at a November start, so we will be Clapping-a-long in Spring/early Summer 'cos we are craft rebels! Thats right the AADC grrls dont down sticks because of 30+ degree heat!

ok, rambling now and my 10 minutes are up, so I will get back to my metrics and spreadsheets now................

craft ya real soon!

Aarrrrggggghhhhh Me hearty!

My pirate name is:

Iron Mary Flint

A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Pssst! Over here!!!!!

Lots to tell, or rather not tell. I have been off the radar for a little while as there has been some developments in other parts of Shazmina's life, which I wont discuss here. Most of you know what I am talking about! :) Needless to say it would be better off in a whole other type of blog!

So craftwise, I have been working on a project for a friend that I miss alot. It meant starting a project that was not on either my started list or my potential project list, but it is worth getting even further behind. Here is the delicious wool I am using.

Lambs Pride Worsted, in Clematis (purple), Oatmeal, Seafoam and Fuschia. Yum!

The weather is starting to get warmer (I heart spring in Sydney!), so I am even less motivated to complete the Skully jumper. I am also procrastinating as I have to pick up stitches around the armhole to start the sleeve. Yuk, picking up stitches, that is so not my favorite thing to do.

Now there is an idea for a blog, how to get over procrastinating from doing the really fiddly, crappy and annoying knitting stuf. Hmmmmm will have to ponder on that one! :)

OMG! Finisher/Completer Update

SUPRISE! I have finished a project. This is a tea cozy for Mrs Bendi, made in Noro Kureyon 88. It is actually for a 2 cup tea pot so it will fit better than the one in this photo.

Who said I never complete anything???!

ps. Finished one project and got another to add to the list. Benjamin and Brettly want one, seems I cant get a project off my list without replacing it with another!
