It’s MINE!

26 Jan

My Baby Bear is packing up to head back off to Uni today.  Her cat was not so happy to see his play tunnel folded up and proceeded to pounce on it.  A quick moment photo, no time for getting focus point right, just point and shoot and trust the camera.

Works in Progress

25 Jan

As anyone who does anything creative will know, we never just work on one thing at a time.  There are always WIP’s on the go.  Here are two of mine.

Auditioning Buttons

24 Jan

The theme of this blog is Finished is Better than Perfect, something that certainly hit home today.  A cardigan for a niece in Canberra is almost finished (finally) it just needs the (perfect) buttons.  As anyone who has ever dabbled in knitting, sewing, crochet, quilting, embroidery in fact any creative art will know, there is always a button stash.  The biggest issue is usually finding enough of the ‘right’ button.  As the photos will attest, I might have found the ‘perfect’ button but I need 4 and only have 3. Which do you prefer?

Cheese Puffs

23 Jan

Wow, how easy are these to make, and how delicious.  Gotta love cooking.

We are Sailing…..

22 Jan

Today we spent a very pleasant day sailing on the Derwent River.  A friend has a yacht and while it’s usually ‘the boys’ who go and play, today I got an invite.  There were many great moments, so it’s hard to choose just a few for here.

The first was a group of seals that were just floating in the water with one flipper in the air.  They were not at all worried as we sailed past.

One even appeared to roll over and wave at us.

Then as we were heading home we got a close look at the Eye of the Wind.

Towing Lesson

21 Jan

While DD is off touring around Europe and keeping me in grey hair worried about her safety, DS races cars and causes other worries.

Today was a lesson in towing his car to an event.  It also marked the official christening of our new tow vehicle.

Today my Baby Bear arrived home from what I am sure is only the first of her trips to Europe.
