St Kilda





Currently suffering from exhaustion after days of hand sewing.
Chevron padstitching, basting, herringbone, whipstitch, slipstitch... I have mastered them all.

Here are some photographs from the suburb in which I live. The building in the second photograph
'The George Hotel' is where my Grandparents on my Fathers side spent their honeymoon.
By some strange twist of fate I ended up living just around the corner.
I walk the same streets my grandparents walked 60 years ago,
theres something comforting in that.

    That is a lovely co-incidence re your grandparents. Did they live here, or just honeymoon here?

  3. Tallulah- oh really? Another coincidence! My Grandparents grew up in the area but then moved to Adelaide after marriage and then onto Sydney so sadly no family remain!
