A Perfect Day

Today was a public holiday in Wellington. The weather was fine and pretty hot – it reached 28deg C (82.4F), which is pretty rare for us. I had a near-perfect day: a sleep-in followed by a long run along the beach near our house, brunch (at Sweet Mother's Kitchen) and a movie (The Darjeeling Limited) with my love, and then an afternoon and evening of crafting accompanied by a glass or two of NZ Sauvignon Blanc. If only everyday could be as sweet.

Here’s a project that has been on the to-do list for a long time. I finally got around to it this afternoon:


So simple I almost feel guilty posting it. I stretched some Lara Cameron fabric over an artist canvas and secured it with a staple gun. It’s now hanging above the bed in the spare room. I like it so much I might have to move it to our bedroom instead…

I also got some knitting done on a WIP that is not quite ready to post yet. Maybe next week.
