In all honesty...

To be completely honest, I haven't touched my sewing machine in a little over...a month. It saddens me to say that, sewing is and was such a large part of my life not that long ago. I am still trying to figure out where it fits in in my present life as not much free time isn't very conductive to creative time. 

I spent my weekend just past with friends and loved ones, relaxing from a full on week and enjoying the weekend like most other people that work Monday to Friday. A part of me wished to spent some time sewing but two days really evaporates quickly when you try and cram so much into them. I think the main thing is that I still want to sew, right?

My Instagram

Play time with the animals, long late night drives, new toys, seeing old friends, spending time with my parents and enjoying the open air. These are just a few things that happened this weekend and that I happened to document through Instagram.

3 Weeks in Sydney...

I haven't been very active on the blog front the last few weeks. I have been down in Sydney for training for my new job and I decided to take a conscious break from the Internet while I was there (it could also have been that my laptop was too heavy to carry in my bag). I had a great time but I'm so glad to be back in my own bed every night. 

Here are some photos that I snapped while I was in Sydney. I tried out a few great restaurants, caught more trains that I ever have before and spent a lot of time relaxing after a full day of work. I'm excited to be back and I can't wait to start regularly blogging again!

365 Photo Challenge

If you have been reading this blog for a little while now, you would remember that I mentioned as my New Years resolution that I would be taking on a 365 Photo Challenge this year. I'm happy to say that this is one project that I have been consistently working at daily. What I haven't been so good at is staying up to date with printing the photos and putting them into the album...but I have the rest of the year to finish that! 

Here is a cool collage of six months into the 365 photo challenge!

It's funny that I can look through these photos and see how much everything is different to what I expected....there has been plenty of changes this year and I love being able to look through them and remember the little moments that made up the last six months! I'm excited to see what the whole 365 photo challenge collage will look like!

This weekend consisted of:

-Trying a out a lovely Thai restaurant (Simply Irresistible Thai in North Sydney)
- A very long commute back to Newcastle on the train
-Spoiling myself with a lovely Alannah Hill dress for my first big work function
-Attempting to relax a little after a very busy and tiring week (I wasn't very successful at this!)
