Photo Competition

I entered the above photo in the Eureka Skydeck competition and I CAME THIRD!  It was one of two photos I submitted (I actually preferred the other photo of Flinders Street Station in B&W, but that didn't get a mention).  I forgot about my submission until I received an email saying they chose this photo (along with 12 others) out of the hundreds they received.  Not only will my photo appear in their 2014 calendar but I won a dinner for two on the Tramway restaurant.

Tea Cosy

Recently I enjoyed a High Tea at a quaint old shop and they served their tea in a teapot (naturally) covered with handmade tea cosies.  Well, I just had to duplicate the tea cosy, which was not a complicated process, and viola, here is the outcome.  It is virtually the same tea cosy apart6 from the colours, with the same buttons and pattern.  All in all, it took about 2-3 hours to knit and sew.
