I can’t tell you how disturbing it is to have an attack of senility on your birthday. I knew I’d stashed ’em somewhere safe, but after searching in all the usual places (including the back of the freezer), I’d resorted to glaring at the dog to see if I could persuade a confession out of her. Turns out they hadn’t gone the way of many a chewed sock and were in front of my nose the entire time. This is possibly more disturbing than the senility issue, because if my sight is on the out, then I’ll need to be nailing that knitting-without-looking bizzo, with yet greater quicksticks urgency.
Anyhoo, I found ’em. I have two single tickets up for grabs to the imminent Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show. If you’re local, or not local, but confident residual volcano ash isn’t going to be putting the kaibosh on a speedy trip downunder, then get yourself to the Caulfield Racecourse between the 5th and the 9th of May. I’m champing-at-the-bit excited and particularly looking forward to supporting those fabulous bloggy exhibitor Incubator types.
So. Leave a comment before this Thursday the 29th and I promise to spare us all the usual pain of one of those convoluted giveaway draws I am prone to, by pulling names efficiently out of a hat. But because it feels mean, mean, mean, for the Melbourne locals or confident volcano flyers to get in on all the action, I’ll draw a third name for the non-locals, for a surprise ‘cheer-up’ package involving all manner of, oh, cheering and, admittedly, as yet undetermined, things. It’s a speedy turnaround giveaway – you have until 2pm this Thursday the 29th, Melbourne time!
PS. If I lose ’em again, just so we all know, they’re still on the inspire wire...
PPS. There will be all manner of Stitches & Craft Show activity and know-how to be found and inspiration to be had. You can download your show guide here.
