Oh, I forgot to mention, while I was in the Oppy I was singing James Brown's 'Sex Machine', in my head, for no apparent reason. I was looking through the linen and sung 'shake your money maker' ..... not in my head, it just slipped out! One of the old girls was putting stuff away next me - how embarrassment! I imagine when I left she went out the back and said 'you know the one who always buys that 60's crap - mad as a hatter!!'

Parker took this photo.
I like it, cause she held the camera up, rather than just taking photos at her own eye level. I like Big D's speedo's on the line - he wears these underneath board shorts, perhaps to avoid getting anything stuck in the Velcro? Or any wardrobe malfunctions that may occur?
And some op-shopped embroidery hanging up there too!
Quintessentially Australian I reckon.

A close-up of the card (cause I love it). It reads:
'In Glad School parlance, Wattie, otherwise Nona Watson, was a scream; which meant that her friends found her irresistibly, if not unconsciously, amusing'
Big thanks sis!

This is from cherryskin, thank so much, very generous to share this pattern. So sorry about the blurry photo - it's the camera you know!

We went to see the Fiona Hall Exhibition today at the Museum of Contemporary Art, I was blown away!
The above piece is knitted from strips of coke cans, along with a 6 pack of bottles from cans - incredible in real life.
