Thanks to the Lincraft Collins St store closing down sale, the antique chairs I inherited from cousin Kathleen are going to get a makeover. Gorgeous embossed fabric reduced from $40 per m to $5 per m. Brilliant.
A very funny evening with the extremely entertaining Jennifer Saunders - one of my all-time faves since the Comic Strip days. We are so lucky in Melbourne to have The Wheeler Centre, who not only organise these fab events, but make them affordable for all. $35 is a barry bargain.
Why is it always at night that I'm hit with inspiration to sew something? At least tonight's genius idea was fairly simple in its execution... turning ugly, but useful furniture into something more aesthetically pleasing!
There are some absolutely delightful under-12s in this city. And while most parents were great, some I really wanted to shake.
Please, parents. Let your kids be kids and ENCOURAGE them to create. Being five minutes late because your child is finishing their artwork really doesn't matter in the great scheme of things, but being supportive of their talent will make a huge difference throughout their lives.
I can balance out editing copy for a financial website with co-writing a proposal for a children's animation series whilst researching fun stuff to go into conference gift bags whilst organising a regional tour for a group of theatre makers.
It all equates to no-such-thing-as-a-9-to-5-desk-job and you know what?
Spent most of the afternoon reading Elizabeth Gilbert's 'The Signature of All Things', which is due back at the library tomorrow (no extensions possible). Only 100-odd pages in (of 499) and really don't want to rush-read as I'm enjoying it so much, so I think a little excursion to Readings will be in order, so I can have my own copy, to savour at my leisure.
