DRAMA QUEEN.....AND ANOTHER SORTA SHOW

First up... Brylee's school Drama Production:


 ABOVE:  We went last night to the 2nd, and final performance.   It was not too bad at all.  Brylee did well, didn't fluff any of her lines.  We were quite impressed.
Apparently she was feeling a bit shaky before the start, but was fine during the performance.

But afterwards was a bit different.
She sure is a DRAMA QUEEN!...


 ABOVE:  She fainted.  Or collapsed.  Or something'ed.  LOL.  


 ABOVE:  She certainly seemed to come around just fine when I got out my camera!  'Little Drama Queen'!

She probably was just a bit dehydrated, hungry and the show nerves got to her finally.

She recovered just fine I'm happy to say.

NOW... super excited to say I'm going to another 'Show' today!





ABOVE:  It's the annual Craft and Quilt show in Hamilton... today is the first day of 4 days.  I'm going to be at the door bang on 10 o'clock this morning!  Can't wait.
OOOOooo, I wonder what treasure I will find?


  ABOVE:  Here's our Kelly and my Mum.  Kelly's over in Coffs Harbour, Australia right now visiting her.

Right, let's be getting on with today...

ONWARD...

Well.... while the cats away and all that! Cranky....REALLY?  Like OH MY... I thought you were a FRIEND?  Me thinks not.

On to now... the show is quite small this year! Hardly any fabric stalls 😣 I have managed to find a few things to get though... so I'm happy.

I bet ya all want to see what I bought eh?

Well here goes:



 ABOVE:  I told you it wasn't much!
NO need for a trolley... lol.


 ABOVE:  Some new snips/scissors and those two little round things are for clipping onto your top and hanging a pair of snips off.  There's a retractable string so you can use the snips, then just whizz them back up, out of the way.


 ABOVE: Totally needed one of these!  For holding large spools of thread.  
So happy to have seen and bought it.


ABOVE:  I've always wanted a pin cushion to wear on my wrist. Yep, I could have made one easily... but I didn't. *smiles*


ABOVE:  3 patterns that I just love.  I could have sourced picture of animals off the web of course (and have done), but they caught my eye and I decided to get them.... seeing as I bought NO FABRIC!!!!

Amazing.  No fabric.  I so though I would get heaps of fabric, but sadly, there just wasn't any large bolts of fabric for sale, mostly just fat quarters, and OMG, I've got enough of those!

Well, it's been a lovely day... mostly.
I'm very happy with my purchases from the Fair. Now it's almost time for bed.

  2. Wow, that's really cruel, Chris. Totally shaming Brylee there. Why don't you just say she did a good job and you're proud of her? You're mentioning her by name and putting her school details on an open blog...not fair on her. if I was her I'd never forgive you. 😡

    2. She's a teenager, most teenagers are exactly the same. Doesn't mean she deserves to be publicly shamed.

  3. And before all the haters comment, cast your mind back to when you were a teenager! How would you have liked this?

    2. Whoever Cranky is she doesn't know your family very well. I can imagine Brylees response. It wasn't shaming her at all.

  6. Congrats to Brylee on her performance. The only time I was ever on stage in school was when I was 7. I had long hair and they had a magician. He made my hair stand up on end and the kids all died laughing???? I hope you had a good time at your other show. You certainly have a lovely daughter and Mother.

  7. I am glad Brylee's performance went well. We generally have a fainter or a poker at some stage during show weeks, overtired, adrenaline and often not enough water & proper food during long rehearsals and reliance on energy drinks and junk food. Even when I was good Mummy & packed lots of proper food, somehow they managed to eat lots of crap :-).

    Looking forward to seeing what Brylees next show is, has she thought about joining a theatre company, or even musical theatre, she will make heaps of friends and gives her something to focus on.

  8. Yes I am a friend, a friend who is HONEST. If you don't want honesty just let me know. You'd have no hesitation in being honest with me if you thought I was being a bitch!

    1. I wouldn't diss you on your FB or blog (if you had one), that's for sure. You comment was uncalled for and not something I would expect from a friend. End of. RWYS

    1. OH yes, Milton was there, but he was almost the only stall holder with bolts of fabric. I went out to his shop only last week or the week before, so didn't need any of his fabrics.

  16. I'm glad Brylee is ok - you guys sure do have excitement! RE: the pincushion, sometimes stuff is just easier to buy. You can concentrate on your quilting that way. :)
