Hello Yarnies <3
It finally happened! Mrs Nicole Yarnish bid us adieu and set off for the strait sea bound for Tasmania! The 'Celebrity Solstice' departed Sydney Harbour on Sunday, and took with her a crazy bunch of yarn enthusiasts. And although Yarnish HQ was slightly gloomy yesterday (Emma, Shelby and I were feeling a large hole in our hearts), we could not be happier to see Nicole soak up the sun and sea (she really deserves it!). I mean, does this face not radiate 'relaxation'???! (✿ ♥‿♥)
And yes, the infamous boot was brought onto the cruise too hehe
So tonight's episode of WITB was a little different from normal. With Nicole away cruising, Shelby was left to 'woman the ship' on her own! And seriously, she is doing brilliantly! If there was ever a person to have things under control, it's our Shelby!
But in saying that... there were a few moments Shelby looked like she was having a bit too much fun!!! *Bob Seger begins to play*
Kerri Nosworthy - our WITB comedian - was the director of this short clip! Thanks, Kerri, you're incredible and sooooo amazing! You make us laugh out loud every week!
Let's jump in....
Sit back, relax and enjoy tonight's rundown of....
Shelby was on her own tonight, but she was receiving soooo much love from the comments!
Special Appearance by Nicole!
Let's face it, Nicole can never miss a WITB! So we should have seen it coming, but nevertheless, what a beautiful surprise to see this face pop up!
Nicole joined in for a sneaky chat, but not before we were made to feel super jealous with a panoramic view of the sea!
Who do you identify with the most? Shelby or Nicole? After seeing all of Nicole's amazing pictures....I'm totally feeling Shelby... （ ´_⊃｀）
Nicole did her own little show and tell, despite Shelby reminding her: 'Mum, I have a script'! But that didn't stop Nicole from showing off all her goodies! From hand-dyed hanks to handmade crochet hooks, Nicole cleaned up in Hobart!
Then there were the many attempts to hang-up, which was entertaining in itself! Oh, the wonders of technology!
Ultimate Rainbow Challenge Winner (✿ ♥‿♥)
Let's not delay in revealing the Ultimate Rainbow Challenge Winner.... *drum roll*
