Sailing a yacht under the Hobart Bridge. Yes, that's me at the tiller! Mr Macska's very good friend James took us out on his 40 ft yacht, and despite getting rather seasick I had a fantastic time. We even got to put the sail up.
Catching the Striborg gig at MONA. Striborg is a one-man ambient black metal band from Tasmania, which sounds a bit like Burzum. He happened to be playing as part of MONA FOMA while we were there, so we caught the show, which was pretty cool, and I took a terrible photo in the dark!
One of the best things about the show was it was held next to the amazing new chapel at MONA which is by Wim Delvoye. It's a seven-sided Gothic-inspired structure made of rusted iron lacework with seven stained glass windows set into the central room.
The next day we headed up to Launceston for Mr Macska's parents' 40th wedding anniversary party. They owned a fabric shop for years, and I couldn't resist taking a photo of this amazing quilt that Mr Macska's dad made. It's almost three-dimensional, each little square sits up off the circle it's on. Beautiful work.
Gorgeous flowers at my mother's place, brightening up the day every time I walked past them.
This lovely stretch sateen with roses on it that I didn't buy (curses!) in a fabric shop in Launceston. I did get some grey, black and white very large check silk to make a skirt thought.
And of course going through the old family photos. Me as a little child, my father called my ears "paper ears" because they were so soft and bendy.
