Just so happens, she was a very cool American who had also showed up on-time her first time but loved going so much she just decided to be the one to open the doors and get the coffee ready for all the others who attended. Yes- OTHERS. As in more people than just accent-less Americans. (Though it’s quite entertaining to be told, “I love your American accent!” However, blurting out, “I don’t have an accent- you do,” might just reinforce the whole “self-absorbed American” picture the world has of us. I’m really sorry, America.) And then, throughout the morning, more and more people started filtering through- both Aussie and American, as well as a Brit or two. I couldn’t tell for sure because their accents all sound the same. They might have been French for all I could tell. Haha! I kid! French people can’t speak English!
ANYway…. I had fun. A lot of fun! And I learned that a schedule out here is really more like a suggestion so I showed up at 10am this morning and stayed til 1pm. No skid marks!
Turns out there are a lot of cool, artistic people in this joint and it includes people who love “fibre” other than just plain yarn. That first American I met does a lot of wet (Nuno) felting. She actually attended a conference in Perth last week that was all about felting. How cool is that?!? Next week, another lady I met today is teaching a class on wet felting. I got to see her in action today and I really can’t wait for next Friday!
Now, I know that there couldn’t possibly be anything that could happen today that could trump 3 hours of fiber-y goodness.
OH BUT THERE IS!
You see, Little Mister, who I thought was the most serious baby who ever graced this earth,
|Future grumpy CEO|
|Maybe if I poop on her she'll stop with the silly faces|
and who happens to be quite possibly the chubbiest baby ever in the whole world,
|We, who are about to rock, WILL POOP ON YOU!|
|Tummy time with Kermit and Mr. Turtle*|
|SO VERY worth all the poops!|
My heart! It dies from the cuteness!
* That most awesome Kermit mat was made with tons of love for Little Mister by his honorary Auntie Lyteyz. LOVE YOU GIRL!
