Came home from my train trip to discover my postie had left a calling card, telling me of a parcel awaiting collection at the Post Office.
I knew immediately that it was my catalogues I ordered from Phildar, taking advantage if their end of season sale.

Unfortunately they'd already closed for the day at that stage, so it was a case of up early the next morning, and race down there before work!

I got two children's pattern books and two adults. As is always the case, there are some patterns you love and some you wouldn't go near - I doubt there's a book out there that everyone loves every single piece in it.

It has added a few more things to my "to-do" list, however!

I also managed to get some bias binding that I think will be suitable to finally finish my Phildar Swing Jacket. I'm going to attempt sewing it on tonight, so will post photos if I have any success...

On a completely unrelated topic, I was just leaving the city and caught sight of these. How lovely do they look in amongst the grey landscape of Winter? You can click on this link to read more about them and their creator, Omega Goodwin.

so true about the pattern books: it's like "Best of" CDs, there's always a couple of tracks you never listen to, and there's always at least one of your favourites missing, like "Whose idea of a Best of is this anyway"?!

I love pattern books! Even if there's only a pattern or two I'd make, I still love them for the eye candy.

Those pink pigeons are a delight.

Yes. We're all madly clicking these guys at the moment.

Whoever thought it up seriously understood this city. Pink! In Melbourne! In Winter! Genius!
