Sydney in all her finery is hard to beat .... inner city grime & noise is balanced by the green leafy streets & small gems of parks & beaches dotted all around the harbour foreshore.
Neilson Park is one such gem
I came here often when the children were small ..... it is my ideal beach with plenty of shade to retreat to when swimming is done . Intrepid swimmers were at it even still on this cool day lapping away across the teeny harbour bay.
And for these two there is life outside Darlinghurst :)
Surry Hills .... on a mission to find a brioche from here .
Next day I was heading to Balmain to find Calico & Ivy which is the sweetest little haven for fabric & craft lovers.
The inevitable followed ... me fighting the urge to fill my bag with lots more fabric that I don't actually need .
BUT a couple of looming projects necessitated a modest purchase & thank you to Amy for assisting me in that matter xx
orange clovers & green grunge
more blue Liberty & roses just because
" still life" by Alexander Henry & the teal is a Japanese print
All that & the Fringe Bar market as well . Torz has a stall selling her very glam jewellery line Lotus Mendes .
Go see her & deck yourself out the latest stylish bling . She's a doll .
All this time spent away from my sewing room means not a lot has been accomplished lately ... but am desperate to get the scrappy wedding quilt finished over the next week .
