Off we trotted on another walk today - in a different part of Canberra with a very different view - but the same kind of trig point. It was hot! Now that spring has kicked in you notice the walks that don't have much shade. Number two was getting a bit fed up with the hill, which is why he has on grumpy face in this photo.
Canberrans do love to dam a random stream and put in an artificial body of water. These two photos are standing in exactly the same spot on the dam wall - one to the north and one to the south. On one side is the inevitable consequence of suburban town planning by committee (fairly hideous, but at least there's a lot of open space, and a lake) and the other side is just an ordinary piece of scrappy countryside.
Both quite different.
Other than that, I am sewing away on a low-volume quilt - which is whites and neutrals and light soft colours. Low-volume is very trendy, but cream-coloured quilts are terribly old-fashioned. I suspect I have accidentally made the latter rather than the former. I'll put a photo up when I'm done and let the internet decide.
I tried to stuff some leftovers into my scrap bucket, and couldn't because it was too full, so I spent a very happy couple of hours making lots and lots of crumb blocks. I didn't make much of a difference to the bucket, but a bit ... I can get it back in the bookcase now.
