This is the river near my house. There are walking/cycle paths along both sides and I love going there in the late afternoon when everyone is out walking their dogs. It's a nice way to forget you live in a city.
I have so many photos of the opera house because I go past it on the ferry on the way to the zoo. Seems rude not to take a photo of some sort, everyone else is doing it!
On the weekend we had a Queen's Birthday party. I love the Union Jack so I was a bit enthusiastic about the decorations! note my very special Royal Wedding tea towel hanging in the window!
Had a big sewing day yesterday working on Window Shopper bags. See the new blue colour? It has a bright orange print.
I love the look of my Bell Street labels all together and decided to store them in a glass jar so I can look at them more often. I think it looks nice!
I said in my last post that I don't usually photograph my food, but this salad was so amazing I had to take a photo to remind myself to make it again! It was grilled apples with lemon juice, bacon, blue cheese and chopped walnuts drizzled with honey. Yum!
Remember Steven Bradbury from the 2002 Winter Olympics? He won a gold medal in the speed skating when everyone in front of him fell over. Last weekend we discovered him at Perisher trying out the new ice rink at Smiggins with all the kiddies.
I recently started making popcorn the old-fashioned way (on the stove) and I'm immensely proud of myself! Have you ever mastered something really simple and felt like you're some kind of genius? just me? Popcorn makes a great sewing snack. I clearly made too much in this photo though, I have since gotten better at working out how much to make.
