So, I was at the Quilt and Craft Fair yesterday with my friend M, and she mentioned the acronym SABLE – Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy – how good is that, and how true for me! I can’t see how I can work my way through any of my stashes over the next 20 years, by which time I will probably be over it! Eek, I think I’ve turned into my mother!!
The theme for MMM today was “home town”. I don’t really know what this means – where I was born? Where I spent my formative years? In the end, all too hard, so I went with where I live now – Claremont! This meant that I could get the photo done before work, with no real stress. But where in Claremont? I went for Bay View Terrace because it was easy to park!
As I review this photo, it really hits me that Bay View Terrace is no longer the iconic street that it once was. All I can see are bits of metal and rubbish bins, plus new paving that does not suit the historic street at all. It actually makes me sad. The image that I posted to Flickr has the bin cropped out:
I guess it looks marginally better. Today I am wearing: another o-ring necklace from Dairing (different colour from yesterday) a grey long sleeve t that I copied, navy blue ponte pants from StyleArc, machine knitted socks, and another version of the Endless Loop wrap, worn differently from here, and in a different yarn – pure baby wool instead of rayon. This makes a massive difference to the way it drapes. The back view is quite interesting:
It almost looks as though I have a skirt on – quite weird.
The only other thing to report is yesterday’s steps: 26,014 (excellent). BUT… How am I going to maintain that average – forgot to start low!
