A Day Out!

Thank you to everyone for all the kind comments wishing us all the best. I am pleased to say that the girls have fully recovered and are back to their usual selves.

We had a lovely day out a few weeks ago with a visit to the Rozelle Markets. The markets are a great place for antiques and bric-a-brac and I had a lot of fun exploring. Aurelia spent most of her time taking photographs and looking at all the jewellery. I didn't come home with much, just a huge pile of play jewellery for the children.






We also visited the genius patissier Adriano Zumbo and purchased a small box of his famous macarons. Sadly they didn't last long enough to take a photo and nor did they last long enough for me to get one, but I do have a photo of the girls enjoying them. They tried a few flavours of Watermelon and Orange, Cola, Lemon Verbena and Passionfruit and Tonka Beans.


I have been stitching a little, but as they are gifts, I can't share until they are received. I checked out my WIP list and it's completely out of control. I am going to focus on these pieces after Christmas and try and get the list down before I start the 2012 Cabinet of Curiosities Course by Tricia Wilson of Thistle Threads.

Looks like you had a perfectly wonderful outing. And, for the record, WIPs list are, by their very nature, completely out of control.
