Hooked on Lee Min Ho!
Thursday, 29th November, 2012 @ 10:02am

Started: 6th November, 2012
Completed: 29th November, 2012
Stitches: 11,660
Happy?: AGHH!! !!!

Soooooo cute!
I do believe Mr. LMH has a cushion in his future
It's a really nice size and I really don't have the wall space right now and i'm not prepared to hang him in the garage !!
Man it feels so damn fab to finish a piece again !! I've missed it! These big pieces have been totallee zapping me of late !
However, now that Min Ho is out of my system, it's time to head back to the skyline of Canberra !
Well, that's if I can tear myself away from City Hunter for long enough....

I am 99.9% positive will we have a FINISHED photo on the way tomorrow!! AGH camera time!!!

Busted Speedometre!
Monday, 26th November, 2012 @ 4:28pm

So, I am yet to finish off LMH....

Which is totallee doing my noggen in.
My crocheting speed as of late has almost come to a complete stop ! Which is weird, because my motivation is going strong ! I suppose I shouldn't be too shitty - I have given the guy an eye..

Sadly there is still quite a ways to the finishing line! His hair has stretched each of the remaining rows to double the amount of colour changes that have been happening thus far, so my impatience for a finished piece will have to suffer a tad longer !

Fete Food Stuffs!
Saturday, 24th November, 2012 @ 10:22am

I'm all set to hit the fete circuit this morning !!
Get my sausage sizzle on, pick up some bargains, purchase something that I probably donated three years ago... that kinda thing !
I'm hitting the local church one first because they have the best granny bakers !! Holy hell, the toffees are to DIE FOR!!
Got Mr. Sexy Smiley up to 45%! overnight!

I spy the hint of a nose! Pretty darn FAB
For now I must flee! Sunshine, fairy floss and handmade jewelery awaits !!

Pearly Whites!
Friday, 23rd November, 2012 @ 10:19am

Here comes a set of dazzling pearly whites for Mr. LMH !!

I REALLY should have had him finished by now, but i've been getting soooooo sleepy soooooo early lately !
So frustrating !!

However! This weekend shall be reasonably quiet, so here's hoping I get him donezo and looking SEXY !

Motivation Proclaimation
Sunday, 18th November, 2012 @ 5:36pm

I'm about to head back to my HOT MESS of a workspace.
Check it...

I've got my super happy fun tunes blasting through the speakers thanks to SBS PopAsia Digital Radio Where I had better hear TVXQ's 'Catch Me' within the first 5 seconds or i'll be ... turning it off and putting it back on repeat on my Ipod....
Threats have never been my strong point....
Side note - Saw the music vid for it for the first time this morning...

Thank God for boybands eh ?....
I have a slight addiction to Asian pop at the moment..... so my apologies for rambling on about it !
Anywayz!! I am in need of some motivation to get back to my hook!
Help a Sister out little man!!

That'll work!!

Architectural Funkyness
Saturday, 17th November, 2012 @ 5:27pm


MAJORLY stoked now !!!
We are finally getting some interesting architectural features happening!

Okay. Maybe not as funky as THAT
We're now also starting to see a super mini version of our nationally famous telecommunications tower in the distance !!
Say G'day to Telstra Tower folks!

Although the details are too small in the piece to really give the tower clarity, as a local, it does add a fuzzy sense of comfort to have it there. Even if it is an un-recognisable blob form
So tonight I shall continue to motor on towards the finish line !
I've got a heck of a lot of sky to cover and the deadline for submission is looming nearer !
Let us take a moment to pray my fingers stay un-tangled and pain free long enough to get there!
3 cheers for determination!! Be worth it in the end!!!

Can you say "Blurgh"?
Tuesday, 13th November, 2012 @ 7:55pm


What in the world was I THINKING???????!!!!!
BLURGH !!!!!!!!
You gotta give a hand to the colour-coordinated pants though haven't you?
No...no you don't really....
For those who haven't been following the chat on the tagboard, I mentioned a little yellow and brown vest that I had a crack at back in the day and yup, this is the piece in question....
Seriously Lee =
Get a load of the pattern book I got it from!

I should totallee scan the whole book! Thank god for the 70's eh?!
Side note - Lee Min Ho(ttie!) is @ 30%!

Ferry Cross The Mersey ~
Monday, 12th November, 2012 @ 5:26pm

Lee Min Ho is @ 25%!

In dancy-dancy-holy-crap-I-never-thought-I-would-get-to-see-these-guys news....
Recognise these young chaps?!?

How about after watching/hearing this?!?

GERRY & THE PACEMAKERS!!! are coming to my town next year!!!
'Ferry Cross The Mersey' is one of my FAVE songs of all time!! It gets an absolute thrashing on my Ipod. So to hear it live is going to be just a little bit spesh !!
Yay to you 2013! You're delivering me some killer gigs and you're still a month and a bit away!

I Can See Clearly Now!
Sunday, 11th November, 2012 @ 11:03am

I've scored another cold !
But let us...

The blue skies of my hometown are coming into view !

Man, am I going to be a little bit crazy super happy face when I cast off on this! It's gotten so large that I can only work on it in bed! All stretched out! Which is proving tricky, because all I wanna do as soon as i'm comfy is snore my face off...
However! The remaining rows are getting smaller and smaller in the colour changing department, so here's hoping the the checkered flag is not too far away !

I've also managed to knock down a couple more rows on my sexy City Hunter!

Next update we should be edging ever nearer to a face! !

Fifteen Bay-Bay!
Thursday, 8th November, 2012 @ 2:57pm


So as the fully qualified scientist that I am i'm prepared to say that there is indeed a correlation between the speed of crocheting and the direct influence your ovaries play over the choice of subject for said crochet piece...

Yup. This will be done in no time...

Lee Min Ho ♥!
Wednesday, 7th November, 2012 @ 10:48am

So i've decided to take a quick side step away from the 2 MEGA pieces and whip up a quick lil portrait
5% after getting hook to wool at about 10:30 last night!

So who in the world is it you may be asking?!?
Well, remember a while ago I posted about a couple of Korean dramas i'd been hooked on?! Namely, 'Boys Over Flowers' and 'Personal Preference'?!?
Well I am now totallee involved with 'City Hunter'.
What do these 3 dramas have in common?!?!


As you can see it's totallee all about his acting ability....
I mean, seriously, dig this...

Yup. That is some DAMN FINE acting ability right there.....
Long story short, yes, this is a lil piece to satisfy Lee's ovaries ...

Actual Updates! Wtf!
Sunday, 4th November, 2012 @ 11:15am

Nothing like starting the day with a giggle right?!
(Dibs on Colourblind Jnr. ladies!! !!)
Bleh... i'm grossing myself out...
Mucho mucho apologies for taking my sweet-arse time on updating !
Turns out my happy snapper wasn't in a playful mood - aka. the battery karked it and I had to wait a stupid amount of time for it to regain consciousness !
Anywayz, anywayz, anywayz, I have been plugging away and have finally reached PhD status on Mr. Landscape


Isn't it pretty!!
I love how the whole picture has kinda changed perspective with the introduction of a bit of sky ! It's adjusted the proportions of everything a little bit, which doesn't make the mountain seem so endless (which let me tell you is fan-arsing-tastic, because I can't WAIT to be done with it !!
My hook has also spent a little time amongst these cool cats this week...

It's only an increase of about 5 or 6 rows, but any progress on McCartney's cheeky shmile deserves a snapshot
I must say it's been blooming FABULOUS to finally have some time to crochet. I feel like i'm getting my mojo back a little bit! It's been luke-warm for a while now thanks to a combo of reasons..
Real World Shtuffs.
..and the main one - working on such LARGE pieces really starts to zap your motivation!! Don't get me wrong, i'm enjoying working on them immensely, but man you do go through periods of wanting to back your car over it, when you feel you're going nowehere fast !
I tell you what does stir the motivational juices though ...PLANNING MORE PIECES!!! I know I know, glutton for punishment, but i'm serisouly excited to get back and finish some old pieces and start some fresh ones that reflect current LOVES !!
Nancy gets the vibe, don't cha Nance?!!
