Things I saw & people I met

I have finally got a few minutes to show you what I did in Sydney...
I caught up with my husband’s cousin for dinner on the Monday night, we went to one of the little restaurants near the opera house. I worked during the week and forgot to take my camera out when I went for walks in the evening, since it rained each night during the week I don’t necessarily think that is a bad thing. I made it back to the hotel with literally seconds to spare on Tuesday night (when the 20 year storm hit). Wednesday I ordered in, it was cold and I wanted to knit. This is what the view from my room looked like:

There are other photo's but you get the idea. I discovered some great shops (ok so perhaps they weren't all that secret but they were a discovery to me) and did a little shopping. Thursday night I went along to the Stitch & Bitch at Tapestry Craft where everyone at the table was on Ravelry! I'm terrible at remembering every ones names but I know that Webgoddes, Missfee & Bex were there. In fact this is Missfee's Tangled Yoke Cardigan:

They were all very nice people and I actually got to see some of the projects I want to make and I still want to make them!

Friday was shopping, Saturday day was shopping and then off to see the Mardi Gras Parade. Unfortunately my photo's aren't the best due to people trying to get in front of me. It was a great night. Sunday was recovering and Monday was walking around the city deciding that, yes, I have had enough shopping and want to go back to the hotel, pack and go catch my flight.

Our desk got installed in our front room this week, half was put in last week and the rest yesterday, here's the before and after photos, the alcove is just under 4m wide by 1.1m deep. The desk is 90cm deep by 3.5m long.

Today I have felted my 2 hats that I knitted while I was away, I'll take some photo's for you tomorrow.
