Hello world are you ready for me??

I intend this blog to be mainly about my crafty/sewing endeavours and not really about my family or family life. But I guess that sometimes the two will collide.

Ahh about the blog title. May be it gives a hint about my sense of humour. But the name is deliberate. It comes from a very interesting girl in my mothers' group. I like to make clothes and 'stuff' for my little girl (her user name is Niko Niko or Nii-chan). Well one day at mothers' group one of the mum's commented on how nice the outfit I had made was. The interesting one's response was, "So What!" I don't think she meant to say it so everyone could hear, there was a pregnant pause, then my sense of humour set in, I thanked her for a fantastic craft blog name. Her response? "Mcspannar (my user name), wouldn't it be lovely if we could all live in the same universe as your mind?" It was a brilliant idea and I was trying to diffuse a situation.

But it is a good name. It could cynical or positive. Just a matter of perspective. However, be warned I have a very British even Monty Python-esque sense of humour.

We'll have to see how much blogging and sharing I will be able to do in the next few months... See being the procrastinator that I am, I have started a blog instead of doing the following: clearing out the kitchen, linen cupboard and odd-sods-bods cupboard ready for a move to Singapore; make Christmas presents; pack suitcase for Nii-chan and I (going to Brisbane for Christmas and until a place to live in Singapore is found); and write Christmas. Why not start a blog to share with whoever my adventures in sewing? One has wanted to do this for awhile now (and there has been behind the scenes encouraging), but Stingy (darling hubby's user name, you'll find out why in due time...) is out tonight tripping the light fantastic at a work related function and here I am at home.... Procrastinate now! Anyhow I am having real sewing withdrawal symptoms. As depicted below.

Even though I will miss my apartment, and my current sewing space as depicted above (cramped but I have had fun in it), haunts and favourite fabric stores, Singapore here I come. With a short sojourn in Brisvegas thrown in with Donnie and Happy (parents user names).

Nite all, really do need to do some more stuff sorting...

Ps Chara, is my 'studio' a bigger disaster site than yours before it had a 'fall' clean??

Hello Anna! Welcome to blog world. You'll love it. :) I have been meaning to write you a formal thank you note...I did receive your swap package, and it was brilliant! It was so thoughtfully pieced together. So thank you, thank you, thank you. Such a treat!

Can't wait to read all your future posts! Have fun in Singapore! (You have to write all about it, and take pictures!!!)

Hi Anna! I am going to echo and say welcome to the blog world! :) It is so much fun, I think you might find it a bit addicting:) My studio is actually staying organized, which seems sort of amazing but is oh so nice. Hope all the sorting is going okay for you!

Welcome to the blog world - it's nice to see that I'm not the only procrastinator around.
