I've been tagged...

For a me meme by SweetP Knits. I've finally got around to posting it.
What is your current obsession?
Finding a recipe box. You just can't seem to buy them in NZ. I found this cute vintage one on etsy but the postage is a little crazy.

Recipe box from Martha Stewart

What are you wearing today?
The new tunic top I just made from this book.

What's for dinner?
Stew from the freezer with rice. Isla loves rice.
I love it when I make double batches.

What would you eat for your last meal?
An eye fillet steak with creamy mashed potato and some fancy sauce and portobello mushrooms. Then profiteroles (with cream and chocolate sauce) with fresh strawberries.
ETA: Oh my goodness yes, how could I forget to write olives here!

What's the last thing you bought?
Not including food - Beeswax crayons and wooden stacking rainbow for Laim's upcoming birthday.

What are you listening to right now?
Kids music CDs and Radio National in the car. Not much at home. I'm sick of all our Cds. I'm on the hunt for new music.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Assisi or Gimmelwald- as long as the family could come with me.

Which language do you want to learn?
Umm none actually at this moment in my life. Kinda makes my head hurt thinking about trying to learn another language.

What do you love most about where you currently live?
Having so many beaches close by.

What is your favorite colour?
At the moment it's yellow. Second to that is green.

1. thrifted sunshine, 2. appily dappily, 3. vintage yellow dansk buffer server, 4. bits of yellow, 5. Birdseed Double Half Apron, 6. in/out, 7. warming the neck, 8. Vintage yellow Volkswagen T1, 9. sept7 - friday feet, 10. Yellow, 11. shiny new shoes, 12. lemonade

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
All my cardigans. Love cardigans.

Describe your personal style?
Eclectic. Quite often everything I'm wearing is from the opp shop. (Not including undergarments!).

What were you doing ten years ago?
Completing the last year of a product design degree.

If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?
It would depend where it came from. We are trying to save every penny to get our house rennovations started. But if it was given as a gift purely intended for frivolously spending - maybe a pretty vintage dress in yellows (if one could be found).

What are you going to do after this?
Close the curtains and put some rice on to cook for dinner. (Well it's morning here now, so I'm not going to close the curtains actually! Wrote this a few days ago).

What are your favourite films?
Charlie and The Chocolate Factory - the original.

What inspires you?
Other creative people.

Your favourite books?
My bible.
The Hobbit.

Do you collect anything?
It used to be handbags but now I just have one that's big enough to hold snacks, water and a cloth for sticky little hands.
Now I collect vintage fabric. Not purposely, I just can't help myself.

What makes you follow a blog?
Creativity and great photography.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today?
Out for coffee with a friend.

What is on the top of your to do list?
Make some more pixie hats for the shop. Finish sewing Liam and Isla's painting aprons. Plant carrots and beetroot. Clean the shower.

The rules:
1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people.
Ok so eight more people:

Feel free to ignore if it's not your thing.
