Loose ends + sojourns


I've been a bit absent around here lately... (there's a lot going on)... but I have managed to grab the odd spare moment to crochet in the loose ends on my hexagon blanket. Loving my loose ends pile :) I'm on the home stretch now – crocheting a border around the blanket (just two rows of a double crochet stitch) and it will all be done :)




Now, about the sojourn... There are some beautiful French words that have been incorporated into the English language, but I think my favourite is "sojourn"... it has such a slumberous feeling to it that suggests the very best kind of holiday or break.... and that's just what's been 'going on' chez 3 Sheets... I've been getting ready for my annual sojourn to a trade fair in Paris.

Very exciting, even if it is going to be more work than play. I don't think there'll be a lot of sojourn-ing going on though... We'll be hopping around all over the place – Amsterdam, Antwerp, Bruges and London as well as Paris, and rushing back to Brisbane in time to spend the last week of the school holidays with our girls :) Looking forward to meeting up with this lovely lady in Antwerp.

So, tomorrow I'll be looking out at clouds with delicious anticipation. See you in two weeks! :)

I am very envious of you right now, I know this is for work, but you will still have such a great time! I do miss London. But Paris - how fabulous! And meeting up with a blogger friend too! Can't wait to hear about it when you get back!!xJennie.

Oh my! How exciting! Have a wonderful time Kylie. Paris must be one of the coolest places for a trade fair. I've only ever been to trade fairs at the Brisbane convention center! :)

The blanket looks fantastic. I love the way you mix colours. The combination is perfect.
