Went to the Wallace and Gromit exhibition at acmi. Great exhibition, lots of drawings and sets. The detail is amazing. Few characters missing, Bitzer and the Farmer. Not a lot of Shawn the Sheep, but a couple of things from the movie. Worth visiting if you are in Melbourne and a fan.

Very little crafting done yesterday, was working on the bathroom renovation. Removed more tiles, the cabinet, mirror and sink. All that is left is the shower.
Something crafty that did arrive yesterday was an automatic knitter that I bought on Ebay for $5. It will come in very handy at the Christmas Window Sit & Stitch.

I was asked for the pattern for the lawyer's wig I made for Amigurumi Girl. I didn't write down anything at the time because I thought she would be a one off thing. So I have been making another wig and writing as I go. I used the head of a larger reindeer, minus ears and antlers for the size. The doll being made was about the same. The wig has a crochet base and then loops sewn.

We got a new printer. It's a HP and a lot larger than all our other printers. It can do A3 size paper, which is great, I often like to upsize patterns. The down side is that we had to remove a shelf to accommodate it, which had books on it, luckily there was still lots of room on the new bookshelf.
