Twenty First Birthday cake for goddaughter Ginger. A dark chocolate buttermilk cake filled with milk chocolate ganache and crushed chocolate crackles - recipe from @womensweeklymag. Beautiful party for fam and friends at Charlie Parkers where we were handed a delicious negroni on arrival to match the dreamy peonies @grandiflora_sydney xx
I couldn't make it to Fine Apple Tart class yesterday with @nadineingram@simonjohnsonprovidore . But she kindly shared the recipe with me and I had a go on my own (I might have cheated a little by watching the delightful video on her website). Best fun for a Saturday afternoon.
Yesterday afternoon was a joy - we had such a great time yarning about yarn and talking of the joys and benefits of making things by hand. Thank you to @meredithgaston@jacquifink@dearindira@stylebriefhongkong . The @kpcyarn pop-up is on all this week at 14 William St, Paddington with workshops and classes. Artworks and yarn for sale too.
The winter doona went on the bed today... can't wait to snuggle up with the new book It's Beautiful Here by my dear friend @megan_morton and designed by the incomparable @evi_o. And a new hot water bottle cover made with heavenly cashmere yarn from @kpcyarn to a pattern by @foxslane#book_chat#grannyhottie
Ah the deep satisfaction of finishing a blanket to keep loved ones warm. Come and hear about the healing effects of stitching and creating at the KPC pop-up at 15 William St Paddington next Saturday, 3.30 pm. I will be joined by my amazingly creative and kind friends Jacquie Fink, Meredith Gaston and Indira Naidoo. We will chat together for a bit and then invite you to join the discussion and share what stitching means in your life. Tickets can be secured at kpc.bigcartel.com or at the door. Proceeds to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Beginners very welcome - come along and you will be swept up! @jacquifink@meredithgaston@dearindira@stylebriefhongkong@kpcyarn
