Scatterday Challenge - L

MW posted this challenge on her blog so I thought I'd give it a go. This week's letter was L and the categories were Food, Animal, Sewing.
First, for Food, we have a common fixture from my kitchen ... leftovers.

Animal was a challenge for this City Girl. My first thought was of Mr Less-Than-Useless at work but didn't think he'd let me take his picture. He doesn't trust me for some reason. So, after a moment of amazement at just how animal-free my life is, I was saved. We have a lizard, a tuatara from New Zealand.

For the Sewing category, we have some lace that my friend Linda gave me. Not sure where it came from but it smells old.

Thanks, Michelle, for sending me the link to make photo mosaics.

My Journal Quilt for Houston

I've been working away on this as the deadline approaches. I can't show you the piece but I can show you the back.

I've been taking work-in-progress photos and, once it is on display in Houston, I'll show you the other, more interesting side.

Rain Clouds

We have had some much needed rain in Sydney but it ended our brief flirtation with summer with a return to cold and windy weather. So much for those who said winter was over!

I'm Ba-a-a-a-ck!

I think that I have finally shaken this horrible lurgy that has been making life unpleasant for the past 6 weeks. I knew that I was on the road to recovery when I started to feel hungry at meal times. Then I realised that I wasn't spending most of every day trying to cough up a lung. And I could actually stay awake all day instead of sleeping all afternoon. Then I started waking up in the mornings and actually feeling like I'd gotten some rest.

But the real sign that I'm back to my usual self ... I actually did some art today. Worked on my journal quilt for Houston. Went to the tapestry exhibition at the Ervin Gallery by the Observatory. Took some photos and didn't delete them.

Of course, the balance of the universe must be maintained, so Blogger took on that job and won't let me upload a photo to go with today's post. But that is OK. It will probably work tomorrow.
