This year on November 11 is the Remembrance Day (ANZAC Centenary). The ANZAC countries celebrated with red poppies. Red poppies happen to be one of my favourite flowers too so I'm happy to join in and make a few out of felt and paper. Apart from celebrating the ANZAC Centenary I have included a few other celebrations on this post as well:
Melbourne Cup happens every year on the first Tuesday in November. Melbourne cup is the "race that stops the nation". The tradition for Melbourne cup day is wearing fancy hats. The hats have now getting fancy and fancier as the year goes by.

to the theme!
At the university where I work we put on a lovely party for Melbourne Cup. This year's theme is vintage floral. My colleague Ben and I went as duo wearing my ANZAC red poppy pins and more on our hats. And we won the best costums for the even! I wished I could posted our photo, but I hate posting photo of myself on the blog!
Something else to celebrate here is the completion of my Tree-House Studio! When I said complete I mean it's the moving in stage. Mr Notjustnat and I have been working hard putting together the cabinets we got as kits. We finally finished and the bench top has been installed.

Another celebration is my craft group's turning 8 anniversary! I started this craft group at work 8 years ago. We have had 4 exhibitions in that time. We only meet one hour a week during the lunch break.

|Peter was hard at work|
We use the conference room to meet and spread our stuff. The group started with book binding which I have shown them. Then we moved on to do whatever people want to do, but Peter always works on book binding. We make special books/journals for members who leave retired.
|Graduation Day at Monash|
The last and final celebration is graduation day for 2014 graduates at Monash University. I love being part of this celebration. I enjoy seeing the graduates in their gowns in the colours of their faculties. I love seeing the proud families and friends line-up for photograph. Working in the university library I have a big part in supporting these graduates with their study. You can't help but feeling proud of them as well.
Until next time
