No blogposts huh.
Saw this hoop on pinterest and it made me smile.
Having seen that poster being held up by a thousand designers doing their own interpretation, I enjoyed seeing it on a hoop. Because keeping calm and carrying on is what cross stitch is all about.
I've just put out 600 mobile banners. I'm feeling a little fuzzy.

Miss Texas 1977
Hey, that's me!
Tomorrow, (Friday 25th) I'm playing some music at the Word of Art Gallery in Woodstock.
I'll be joined by Miss Texas 1977 and The Frown.
Come look at some locally produced art that will be distributed by locals on bicycles on Saturday and we'll sing you a song too!
Admission is free and it starts at 6pm
See you there!

Miss Texas 1977
Justin Badenhorst is a local photographer, he's good, I love these pics he took of these barbers, they look like morticians, and the portraits of these hot boys, nice.
He once took pics of me in a pool. Back when I was a blonde for a bit.
View more of his work here.
I'm loving the illustration on the new Laura Marling site, very pretty, like the music.
Every time you click on a new link, the top half circle image changes, it turns round and reminds me of a season changer that I once made in Montessori. Season changer...that's the best description I can think of.
I may be a Miss Texas 1977 groupie but here are the facts.
They will be playing at Speedways next week Thursday (17th June).
There will be guest artists.
The poster is super cool, designed by Michael Merrett.
Facebook event here.
I'll be trading next week Tuesday at the Neighbour Goods Market EVENING MARKET!
I'll have all the old favourites plus a few new things!
I've knitted up some gorgeous new Scarflet O'Harras in cotton, bamboo and pure wool. Adding to the collection of neutrals, I now have some "man colours" ie. brown, dirty blue, dark grey.
Hope to see you all there!

I'm loving these soft furnishings from Side Attraction3. The products are made with natural materials such as linen, muslin, cotton, hemp, silk and leather.
The company also works with community projects in the Western Cape.
"side attraction 3 supports african handicraft, and works closely with the women of the african childrens feeding scheme, to create upliftment, using art and culture to promote the value of a lifestyle that is lived with social awareness."
Have a look at more products and more info on their website here.
My sister in law helped work on these new model dinosaurs.
They're dinosaurs that lived in Southern Africa which was really cool to imagine.
I liked the idea of them walking and breathing on the same land that I walk and breathe on.
Also, the museum is cool.
Sunday marked the day of Marietjie's birthday.
It was such a lovely day! It started with a walk up Silvermine and ended with a fantastic brunch at her fantabulous house.
Thanks for having us Marietjie!
My mommy would be proud to see that party throwing hasn't gone out of fashion.
