The Last Week,or so....

A trip to Sydney to pick up Elliot-lunch in Chinatown,some op shopping & a visit to one of my newfound favourite shops No Chintz,where I picked up a little bit of fabric & a few ribbons & trims.

 2 of my Sydney op shop acquisitions-an Italian biscotti jar &
a beautiful Italian jug,which I just love & won't be parting with!

The rain has barely stopped here in the last week(well,3 actually) so winter food has been in order...
                                                                                  





Lamb casserole with rosemary dumplings

Found some delicious new fabrics...





And more sewing for the market...

Made more than a hundred new flags for bunting-decided to make some larger & longer ones-ended up with 6 completed of 10 flags on 3m long tape,& lots left over for next time.

Also made some winter scarves using new-old woollen check fabrics which I keep managing to find around the oppies here,mixed with other vintage fabric & doilies & trims.

The weather was threatening to make the market a washout on Saturday,but turned out a fine but cool day-was a bit quiet,but still went ok,got some knitting done & was better than being stuck in the house!

And guess what? It started raining again this afternoon!Yay!
