I've been holed up at home the past few days with a shocker of a cold. Not one to sit still, I thought it was a good time to clear out the wardrobe for a Vinnies drop - which led to me cutting up an old sloppy joe and sewing my very first soft toy for the baby. Don't worry, I won't be giving up my day job - but I did find my crafty afternoon rather enjoyable.
Pictured above the 'red thing' is the dream catcher (I think he sort of matches it) I brought back from Bali last year.
Last week when I was feeling a lot better, I met a friend on a gorgeous Autumn day to see the much talked about Picasso exhibition. It was rather thrilling to be standing in a room with so many of his paintings, but is it bad to admit that I have never really loved his work? In saying that, it is astounding to see what he was up to as early as the 1900's - definitely a man before his time.
We also dropped in to see Art Express 2012. Again, we were really impressed - I especially loved this paper sculpture by Sydney Girls High School student Hannah Clements.
I hope you are all having a great week!
