I'm loving this crochet blanket I finished the other day, especially on my crisp new white sheets. Ever since my exhibition I've felt like undertaking big projects like this, after knitting all those giant tampons I've realised anything's possible and nothing takes as long as you think it will.

How amazing is this wool?!
I just finished knitting my first ever jumper and my Mum has very kindly offered to get me wool for another one, on the condition that it comes from a friend of hers.
Anthea Fairbrass is one amazing woman. She spins and dyes all the wool she sells herself AND all the profits are for charity, so not only are you getting an amazing product you're helping Income generating projects in Burma. I am incredibly excited to get my 12ply (a special request of mine that Anthea was more than happy to do, normally she sticks to 3ply, 4ply and dk wools) 700gm skein of wool in the same colours as the top image in the mail.. and hopefully this time I'll make a jumper that actually fits me properly!

What better way to christen my new couch and Andrew's new camera than to organise Pip into this ridiculous photoshoot!? AND the 5 seater corner couch, separate armchair and footstool only set me back $80, such a sweet suite deal.

Just thinking about how we never really change.. I'd certainly still react like this if I had a bird on my head and hosting parties is still a bit of headache, fortunately I no longer have to deal with life's issues while sporting a mullet at the same time.

I took one film on my SLR of Blast Off and I've been looking forward to getting it developed ever since. Alas, the only photos that didn't come out bright green were these 4 of the baby ones from behind, luckily I love them.

These are some of my favourite images from install that the lovely Lauren Mahoney took. It was the first time I had felt stressed out about my exhibition - turning up to the gallery in the rain with a car load of giant tampons and no clear idea of how to start, but with a group of helpers as awesome as these guys there was no way we were leaving the gallery without every last tampon hung.
These images are 6 out of 814 that will be made into a stop motion video, I swear about 300 of them are simply of hanging the monstrous two metre long tampon! Lauren was the best person I could have asked to do this for me, she was as fearless in her artistic vision as I had hoped, Thanks Loz!
