It's all about being 3

 It's Benny's 3rd Birthday in a couple of days & I made the above puppet theatre for her (thank you Pinterest) & also her new quilt. Mum chose the colours (wasn't sure how it would all work) & I had the pattern & I think it really did work.  Really happy with 'Serapa for Benny'.

The lights of Brisbane.

The view from the City Cat. A really great way to travel. For those who haven't been to Brisbane - the City Cat is a ferry system on our river.
