Upon completion of the mitts I have been enjoying a slower pace.

The trip to Sydney was a pleasant break.

The view as I returned to the hotel after a pleasant visit to the Power House Museum. To my right is the edge of the city with roof top views and to the left was the skyline of down town Sydney. The afternoon light was perfect.

The view from our balcony  was taken after a lovely evening out at one of our favourite restaurants. The days in "town " were a pleasant variation. Since then the weather has been very blustery and I have been hibernating and catching up on my reading list. Warm and cosy. there has been some sock knitting but nothing much to share as yet the same applies to an occasional treadling of the spinning wheel.

This mural on an alley wall in China Town depicts the weather precisely. It was an unexpected burst of colour and city urban art that brought a small joy to the day.

I hope you all have little joys.  Terry

Those mittens look so wonderful and earthy! It's lovely to see your photos of Sydney, it's such a beautiful city! We saw that alley way on a TV show recently, we recognized it as being in Chinatown. It's great how a mural can transform a grey alley.

I love the Powerhouse. I always include a trip there when I am in Sydney. But it's been too long since my last visit!

Your yarn is beautiful and the mitts with the lacy edge are as sweet as cinnamon rolls, very ladylike with the pretty buttons.

The mittens are cute. Glad you enjoy sleeping away from home in Sydney to Sydney! Hugs Nat
