One more sleep, yay!*

* As Karen was heard to say....

I just might over heat at the prospect of what is ahead.

... No, it's not Aussie Rules (tsk) ...

... No, it's not my birthday (sigh) ...

We're off to the Textile Fibre Forum Open Day at Geelong tomorrow morning, bright and early. Yippee!

Some lucky souls have been there all week, taking classes and soaking up incredible arty inspiration. Since I learned about these Forums last year, I've been desperately envious of people who can afford the time and money to spend a WHOLE WEEK playing with fibre. Ooh, that thought sends chills down my spine.

For the rest of us, they open the doors at Geelong Grammar School at 9:00 tomorrow morning, only 'til noon. There will be exhibitions of student and tutors' work, tables of loot to spend all my not-earned cash on, and fibre inspirations galore. You can see some more details of the Forum here on the official TAFTA site, and here on the Artstitches blog.

And with that whirl of excitement, I'm off! I just remembered that I rashly promised to bake breakfast treats for the road trip, and I've got a date tonight with my husband at the Italian Film Festival.

I think this has just become a Love Friday post, it all sounds so good!

Will anyone else be there? Drop me a note if you want to say hello.
