I'd love to learn how to make these and I love this new design by this super talented person.
I think these are going to be really yummy. I want to make a note of this book and save up an buy another one of these amazing creatures. When I'm after a laugh - this person never fails and when I want to feast my eyes I go here. When I feel like getting lost in the woods, I go here and here....and last but not least - a friend is always here.

The only crafty thing I'm doing right now is a long black scarf...in double crochet. I usually get impaitent when I'm knitting scarves which is why I have a selection of very short scarves that aren't long enoug to fling over my shoulder. This time I made a pact with myself to slow down and get that extra length. Problem is - I'm enjoying the repetition of crochet so much - well, my scarf is getting rather long.
Saw Lars and the Real Girl last night. Em & I ...ahem, got teary.
What else? Plotting a return trip in Japan in October (insert evil cackle here).
On another note - loving the new season. The evening light is amazing - except today when all we have is haze. Sigh. Tomorrow will be better, I'm sure.

These days we live in Yarraville - it takes about 22 minutes to get to work - and that's on the train. There's cafes and a cinema and a bookshop right around the corner. I can buy Martha Stewart at the local newsagent - that's big smoke for you.
I really miss the country but the city is for me. Last night we took Toby for a walk near The Bridge. Sometimes it feels like we live under the West Gate Bridge - we don't but it's kind of in our back-yard - along with the petrol tanks which have their own kind of beauty. It was such a lovely sunset last night. I love autumn - the light is all sepia and nostalgic and in puts me the mood for books, blankets, cooking and old movies.
