I still can't believe it.. Steve Irwin is dead =( I've been depressed ever since I heard about it yesterday after coming home from town. It was really weird too because while we were in town we went into a bookshop and they had a Crocodile Hunter book on sale and we actually picked it up and giggled because it was a kids book with pop-up things in it and a cd and it had pages filled with just his phrases like "Crikey!"...I wish I baught it now =( It's just so strange to know he died by being stabbed in the heart by a stingrays barb... he would have been fine if he would've been stabbed somewhere else.. it's just not fair why do all the good people always have to pass away too soon =(I don't know why I'm so upset about it, I didn't even know him but we used to always watch him on telly and I learned so much from him and his wife. It must be so hard for her to loose the one she loves I feel so sorry for his family I wish I could send them some strength =(
I loved everything he did and stood for not to mention faught for. I wish there were more people like him out there. I've heard that lots of australians don't like him because they think he made them look like "stereotypical australians", but that's not true he made them look like people who love their country and animals and take care of their animals and land. If I was Australian I would be proud to be compared to him.
"Crikey mate" you will be missed Steve, may you rest in peace =(
I've finally gotten rid of my lazy moods hehe I finished knitting the bagpart and I've sewn up the sides so now I have to knit the bag handles, sew in the lining and attach the buttons and then it'll be finito!^_^
So far it looks like this:
I'm going to use 2 of these buttons on the bag:
I know they're not anything special but they're all I have...I actually had to take them off this old pair of gloves that I have and the buttons didn't really have any use on them so I figured they may aswell have a purpose!
I'm using some leftover black fabric for the lining and I'm kind of anxious about sewing it in as I haven't got a clue how to! I think I'm going to wait until I get the sewingmachine for my bday so it'll look nicer, but I still won't know how to... so if anyone has any tips on how to sew in lining then pleaseeee help me out^_^
Asides from that we (me, David and his sis) have been playing this new xbox360 game called Saints Row all day (well they played mostly I knitted the whole time I only played for like 45mins)... David has been anticipating this game for like a year so he was really excited about it and we even pre-orderd it and got a free Saints Row t-shirt with it! How kool is that^_^ I usually tend to like role-playing games like Oblivion and Fable (I've completed that twice) I like adventure games it's just more fun...I do like shoot-em up games but only for like half an hour just when I'm tired of playing other games. I also LOVED playing Thief: Deadly Shadows unfortunatly that's the only one they braught out on xbox (there are 4 different Thief games). I loved the story in it and the whole atmosphere in the game I wish they would make another one and I've heard rumours that they will but who knows when and if it's true. I do know they their making a Fable2 though so I'm excited about that... yes,yes I know.. games are for kids, but I guess I still am a kid when it comes to videogames^_^
sorry to ramble on about games instead of the usual stuff, but I'm sure I'm not the only knitting/crocheting/crafting/artist out there who likes games aswell??
Have a nice day everyone!!^_^
