Took my son to the high school info night tonight.  Got there 30 mins late because of meltdown (not mine) due to computer malfunction.  What did me in was the man riding in just before us who was wearing a very similar bike shirt to one Rex has, biking in to the info night as Rex would have done if he was healthy & alive.

Don't take your life for granted.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  Don't complain about being tired.  Because life is too short & too fragile...but also too big.  And out of our control.

Anyway back home now, might even make it yoga at 6am tomorrow.

Warm teapot

Believe it or not a purchase from the Darling Harbour craft show...vintage tea cosy for $9. Goes nicely with my ugly green and brown kitchen!!

I've always planned to knit something like this one day but so far there has always been another knitting project...

Must.stash for Jeannette

Must.stash for Jeanette, originally uploaded by beeware70.
Ready for a photo?
I am in a Flickr bee called must.stash. The blocks I have just done are for Jeannette of Gone Aussie Quilting. She requested Japanese cross blocks that tell a story. This block tells a story of some of my favorite fabric designers.
It also tells of my love for travel, asymmetry, originality, & of course flowers!

Melbourne shops

When on a visit to Melbourne I do enjoy going to several shops...if I can manage it.
My favourite quilting one is Amitie as is somewhat obvious on this blog.
I came across a couple of  special ones last year at Easter in the middle of town up  some lots of stairs (altho I think there might be a lift too).
I happened on l'uccello.  Lots of beautiful things.
It was just next to Buttonmania (lots of buttons!)

The Nicholas Building
37 Swanston Street
2nd Floor
Melbourne 3000

I'm really not sure why these popped into my head tonight.  I spent a fair bit of time today at the destash market at Marrickville Townhall .  Destashing was the name of the game last year but this year I did a bit of restashing (like I need to!!)...and catching up with my world of craft friends. 

It was a lovely market & a good excuse to let the rest of the fam look after themselves for a while. picture but maybe later......
Here we go photo as promised!  Treasure from the destash!
