Bryce Courtenay's last book before he passed away. It's a fabulous read and I definitely recommend it.
I'm listening to....
Cannot wait to see these guys live at the end of the year!!!!
My first piece of beautiful Greengate.
A sweet floral bowl and spoon. My breakfast definitely tastes better in this!!!!
Lots of yummy baked veges. I'm using oil infused with olives, garlic and chilli to cook them in and it tastes delicious!!
There's also been a few batches of these caramel cookies ..... They never last long!
What are you up to? Right now????

It was a very foggy morning on the way to stitching today.
There's a school there in the background!!! Somewhere!
Today I finally finished my little Tilda doll. The pattern is by Åse Stokmo who I've met through Facebook in the Tilda Lovers Club. She's from My Tilda, Norway, and designs very cute doll and toy patterns.

My niece, who is currently living in the US, has come home to Australia for a few weeks. She and her husband have just had their first baby and it was so lovely to see them and their new bub last weekend. They had little William's Naming Ceremony and there were lots of family (and photos!).

I always enjoy my trips into the city.
This time was even better as I spent the day with my eldest son. We tried a new cafe in Paddington called the Kettle and Tin. It was lovely. I had a pulled pork mexican burger. Yum!!!
We also visited one of my very favourite antique shops - in the old Paddington Theatre.
Always fun ferreting around the antiques with this kid. Can you see the gorgeous blue, high ceiling in the old theatre?
Then I was off into the CBD to QPAC (Queensland Performing Arts). I never tire of the city skyline and always have a walk along the river beforehand).
I've gone in to have dinner and catch up with my uncles and see the show "Anything Goes".
Me and my uncles! Love these two guys so much. The one on the left works at QPAC, so he always knows what's on, what's coming and when the tickets are available. He always asks me to go to shows with him as he knows how much I love the theatre. Sometimes we can talk the other one into seeing a show with us.The show was wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable. The lead, Caroline O'Connor was brilliant. She is so funny, has an amazing voice, dances and tap dances up a storm and was totally the star of the show.

Yay it's Tuesday again!!!
Talking about food.... I cooked lunch for all of us today. Which was lovely, especially as they liked it!!!I have received my Tablerunner in the Farm Girl Vintage swap and I am thrilled to bits with the gorgeous runner I received.
My stitching today was working on and finishing this months block of Jenny of Elephantz's "The Vintage Kitchen". I love these little stitcheries. Just one more to go!
Oh I just love it!!!!! The Churn Dash block is one of my favourites and I just love the gorgeous fabrics and colours Julie has chosen. Even the quilting is stunning.
Julie even sent a half metre piece of the gorgeous backing fabric. I am definitely doing the happy dance over my lovely parcel today!!!
Hope you've had a great Tuesday too!
