..I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go"
Well not really, I'm actually looking forward to getting on my particular jet plane in the morning, but when I started writing this post I wrote 'Leaving on a jet plane' as the post title. That was the end of that wasn't it? I couldn't leave it at that, I had to find the words so that you will have them running through your head for the rest of the day too...!! No, no thanks needed, honestly, it's my pleasure ;o)
I don't really have packed bags yet either, I've been getting my Sue Spargo BoMs ready to stitch while I'm away.
I've got April, May, June, July & August that I haven't touched. I've nearly finished the March block and that's in my carry on bag to stitch on the plane, I'll have four hours to listen to my book on my ipod and do some stitching..!!
I've prepped all the backgrounds for the blocks and joined everything that needed to be machine stitched, everything else is hand stitching! I know, ambitious or what..? I just thought that if I got them all ready to hand stitch then I could just keep going. Wool is really easy and quick to applique and I won't do any embellishing until I've finished them all.
This is the March block, gorgeous colours aren't they?
I had thought about taking my quilt that I'm hand quilting but I just can't get it in my luggage, we (my railway man and I) went out yesterday and we picked up some little things to take over for the kids, it's over a year since I've seen them so a few treats seem in order..!
I'm hoping to catch up with a friend in Perth, I'll let you know if I do, and I would have really loved to have been able to have a cuppa with a friend from up North of Perth, but alas, distance is the enemy!!
I had better get back to my packing (see if I've got room left for some clothes!) I'm taking some of my techno toys, just the macbook and ipod, so I'll still be online and able to keep up with everyone, whatever did I do before technology ruled my life..??
See you in Western Australia.............xxx
