Melbourne Cup Day Public Holiday

No work today due to the Melbourne Cup Public Holiday.  I'm not particularly interested in the horse race, but am loving the day off.  Neale, has had to work today (suffer darling!!) - he'll get a day off in lieu over the Christmas break from the University he works for.

I've been across to Spotlight in Traralgon this morning.  I discovered that Vogue patterns were on sale for $5.00 last night. I misread the sale catalogue I received last week and am happy I didn't miss it altogether.  I had been waiting for Vogue patterns to come on sale for ages.   I bought 11 patterns from my wish list and some more pieces of material - which is in the washing machine now.

Laura is planning on going to QLD in February with her boyfriend and a group of their friends. I'm hoping/wanting to make her some dresses and skirts to take.  I've bought a pile of  pretty rayons, cottons and  voile - they all meet with Laura's approval!  I've shown Laura some patterns and she's happy with my suggestions - it helps that she has marked pages of my pattern folders.  
Below are some of the patterns under consideration - no doubt it will be very warm/hot in QLD in February.
