Thank goodness the rain let up today. Yesterday was wet, windy and cold. Today there were pretty, puffy clouds and 60f/18c degree temps. Mira had to drop off her scholarship application at the student center so we decided to stroll around Newtown afterwards and get some art supplies for screen-printing some of our designs that we have both been planning. The first photo is of the roof of one of the beautiful buildings on the campus of University of Sydney. After we dropped off the paperwork, we headed to a nice little shop in Newtown called Art on King/Modern Times. It is an art supply and book store combo. I got a beautiful card to send a friend in The States and I saw a book called "Textiles - The Whole Story" (something to put on a Christmas list). We also got the paint/ink for printing. I have an old screen and squeegie that we can use. We had lunch at Luxe cafe. Delish goat cheese, shaved fennel root and fig jam sandwich with tea and linzer torte for dessert.
I was spaced out and not paying attention to the scene, but Mira noticed two "knit bombs"! Look it up if you haven't heard of it. I am posting a photo of one of them. It is a scuzzy looking pay phone dolled up with a little crochet on the cable. Also I am posting Mira's little work of art - her original drawing/embroidery of the cat from one of her recent reads called The Master and Margarita. The other photo is of a creatively dressed old woman I saw walking by with her shopping bag. I loved her wild colored skirt.
