More Busy Play Than Busy Work.

At this time of year things feel a lot like they are on fast-forward so I haven't spent much time making anything... even though I've wanted to.

We took a trip to see the Lego Christmas Tree in Sydney's Pitt Street Mall which was pretty cool even if it seemed to be mostly Duplo blocks. I think I will always be a fan of this sort of primary colour combination.

After visiting the Christmas tree we strolled through Hyde Park and ended up at the Australian Museum. It was a long time since I had been to this museum and it was nice to watch our son excited, interested (even if sometimes a little fearful) of the displays.

This guy seemed friendly.

And although I haven't been getting very creative over the last week or so I wanted to share an awesome creative collaboration between creative/artist friend Katy B Plummer of Felt Underground and writer/artist Vanessa Berry. These iron-on patches feature classics from Vanessa's 'Lost Sydney' series seen on her 'Mirror Sydney' blog.

I am saving up my pocket money and trying to decide which patch is my favourite. I remember our visit to Magic Kingdom so many  years ago and riding the Aqua Trikes on the lake there but I also lived around the corner from the Marie-Louise Salon when I was in my early 20s. And then there's the monorail - somehow so '80s even in the noughties. (Patches are available in both their etsy stores - links in text above picture.)
