Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it's just Mum now.
MyDearFIL:: The Golfer's Dad
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother's wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!
Reading: “Gentlemen Formerly Dressed” by Sulari Gentil
Listening to: “Seventh Heaven” by Govi
Watching: “Witnesses” French crime showing on SBS (can’t sew though as there are sub-titles, but it’s gripping!)
Going to: get to the Van Gogh exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria before it closes.
