Christmas cheer

I recently took part in a Christmas ornament swap at the Down to Earth Forum. This is the second year I've participated in this swap and its always lots of fun. My swap partner Becci sent me the most wonderful bundle of goodies.

As you can see I was very spoilt

This is what I made for Becci, little patchwork pillows scented with dried orange peel, cloves and cinnamon and some 3D card ornaments made from last years Christmas cards.

Keeping in the Christmas theme, on Sunday night Tony and I went to see the RocKwiz Christmas show at the Tivoli theatre in Brisbane. For those who are not familiar with RocKwiz, as the name suggests it's a music quiz show, with more of a rock / alternative edge. It was a fantastic night, lots of laughs and great music.

It seems that we're in a bit of a comedy spell at the moment. Early in November we saw the wonderful Barry Morgan (last post), then on Saturday night we went to see the Kransky Sisters and Topology. I think that's my socialising over for another year.

Just in case you're wondering who The Kransky Sisters are, here is a clip from one of their performances.

Very funny ladies, with a slightly bent view on life. Last time we saw them they arrived on stage in their Morris Major car. This time it was on Brisbane City Councils City Cycles wearing plastic strainers as bike helmets LOL.

Cheers for now

I do love the Kransky Sisters. I quite wanted to go when I saw they were one, but two tickets and a night in a hotel in Brisbane is a bit too much. Glad you enjoyed them.

We might be seeing Henry Rollins next year though.

I think you and Becci will be equally delighted!

both you and Becci have made some beautiful ornaments. I love all of the comedians you have mentioned. The only one I've seen live is Ross Noble, I would go back time and time again (if he ever comes back to Australia that is)
