this? and this? this is the bottom left corner. I am very impressed by the rose. While stitching it just seems like an awkward mess of stitches, but pull away and it looks like a rose, even before the backstitch.
19 September 2011- I went to an information session on Sharepoint, and it was held on the twentysomething floor. I have never worked above the 8th floor in any of the buildings I have been in (and usually lower). Probably a good thing as I would be very distracted by the views. A very different perspective from that on the ground. And buildings in brisbane have very ugly rooftops
16 September 2011- I don't know why I took this, but it is the best of the sparse bunch. We went to get some fish for dinner- the local fish shop does both fresh and cooked (fried and grilled). It's a busy place

15 September 2011- I got a couple of free lenses on the Hipstamatic app that are related to the Cowboys and Aliens movie. I hadn't noticed the effect until I photographed something small and simple in black and white. The mouse is sitting on a white desktop- the splash is all camera effect

10 September 2011- Amusing myself by taking pictures while waiting for Greg at the theatre. We went to see a russian ballet group- the piece they did to Bolero was really good. Anyway, the patterns of my dress and shoes in black and white fascinated me.

3 September 2011- I don't think my SIL will ever let me give my little brother a present before they do again. After a few tears last year at being given books relating to a series that he was "too old"for (Thomas the tank engine) we went for the bag of plastic pirate toys instead (he's 6). After an initial lack of enthusiasm (although points for size of present) he got very into playing with the pirate set. I think "bad guys" were being jailed in this set.
1 September 2011- One of the things I miss about the US is decent mexican food- the few places that serve it here are generally very basic tex mex style with some interesting interpretations. This very simple chain is a nice change- fresh tortillas, good salsas, yum.
