I reckon I got away with this picture because it was my birthday yesterday. I did the "oh, go on, it’s my birthday". I had to negotiate the cropping of the picture. What you see here is the agreed cropping.
EDIT – Oops! Forgot to mention when I first published this. THANK YOU so much for all the great birthday wishes it gave me a buzzzzz! AND thanks for the great comments on the bag. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s going to make the grade as a day-to-day handbag, it’s just not the right shape. But no fear it’ll be a great craft bag.
I had a great day. Breakfast out with some lovely friends who gave me a stunning necklace they bought back from a recent South West African trip. Morning tea and cake at work (pressie coming they tell me!), dinner with Doughman, here at the East Perth restaurant. Very nice. I started with a strawberry daiquiri, Doughman a gnt. We shared an entree of scallops on a bed of salad with blood orange and crab. I had the marron with potato and avocado (with a glass of Lamonts champers), he had the veal I can’t remember what was also served with this and we had a side of carrots and root vegetables cooked in truffle oil. YUM. Then I had the hand churned icecream with pistachio meringue. YUMMMY. There were 3 flavours of icecream, one my favourite, liquorice.
I was spoiled and received 3 cake stands. I went from none to 3 in 24 hours! Very cool. All white ceramic, small, medium and large in size. Perfect. Alison M also gave me a subscription to Interweave Knits which is great! Gotta love a subscription.
Came home and got in some sock knitting and watched Alias.
Craft and technology, interesting read. Thanks Richard!
