Ready, Set, Go!

We arrived at the shop this morning to load the trailer for the Stitches and Craft Show and we spied a Koala walking down the outside ring road. By the time we had parked and I'd found the camera the koala was starting to climb this tree.

It was about 4 feet off the ground. It then turned around. Alan was very impressed with this pic, "he's looking at you, isn't that cute". I had to burst his bubble. I was approx 12 feet away and I could hear the koala grunting at me. I wasn't planning on getting any closer.

Off we went to the Convention Centre. Set up went really well. No unexpected surprises AND the only thing we forgot was a hole punch. Of course I didn't think to take any photos today so I'm going to leave you with another pic of the koala.

Wow how cool! Great shot Alan wished it had sound to hear the grunting!

Aaah hole punch - thanks for the reminder Trish. We went in @2.30 this arv and set up in no time. Your stand looks fabulous - can't wait to see it all unveiled!

See you in the morning - I'm geting there for 8 to pop all my goodies out.

Oh...I missed seeing the Koala!! It probably wasn't hard to spot in the crowds out there this morning! I might have to pinch your photo if that is OK?
Glad your set up went well, how exciting, one more sleep! Knock them dead! Well not exactly dead people don't sew and stuff... I know knock them dyed..hahahaha
Kiss Noises Linda

What a cute looking bear - he is certainly keeping a keen eye on you! He looks full of character! Great photos.

How lucky are you to be in koala country, although I don't blame you for keeping clear of Mr Grunt. Best of luck for the show and I'll drop by to see you on Friday.
