Favourite Things Friday with Shay

I am joining SHAY for my  weekly helping of fun with Favourite Things Friday. I have been up since the crack of dawn to get the house in some sort of order for the termite man's yearly check and let me tell you he looks "Everywhere!" It is so yukky, muggy and damp here I looked like a wrung out dish rag by the time I finished.
Thankfully we have a clean bill of health so I am celebrating by shouting myself one of my little favourites when I go shopping later today and that is lovely fluffy pancakes with syrup and ice cream....yum! the photo I am showing you is some lethal pancakes husband and I partook of in Yamba at a cute little place called Sweet Vintage Cafe when we were on holidays. I swear I could feel them zooming their way directly to my hips but they were so worth it.
My other favourite today and you know I can never have just one is Aussie Actor David Wenham especially in the two movies in my photo which we watched again yesterday for Australia Day. I just love these movies and he is fantastic in them. They make me laugh out loud. If you like dry Aussie humour give yourself a treat and watch them. "The Brush Off" is my fav out of the two but they are both great.

My troublesome project had managed to turn it self into a swan...thank goodness and so now I have to find some nice fabric to put "My Country Garden" together. I think it will be something simple but nothing is jumping out at the moment. Those blocks keep staring at me as if to say 'when is it our turn'.
Finally Just to let you know my pattern from the Cookies & Cream Christmas Club is now available for sale. I designed  a cushion called "Mr Meltin Mitten Mender" and is $13.00 AUS. Thanks to all you lovely people who emailed me to tell me you enjoyed stitching him and thought he was cute.
Enjoy your weekend everyone. We are housebound because hubby is on call but that means more stitching for me. Yay! Because.............

  3. Oh, those pancakes! Your photo makes my mouth water. I can almost smell their sweetness. Thanks to your post, I've learned something new. I was unfamiliar with Australia Day so I had to look it up. Happy Australia Day!

  12. Great favorites, though I'm not familiar with David Wenham. Hope you enjoyed your shopping treat. Being termite free is definitely worth celebrating.

  17. Pancakes are one of my favourite things too but I think the ambience at your pancake parlour would make them taste even better. I am known for my cinnamon bun pancakes.
    Delicious.

    It doesnt hurt that David Wenham is easy on the eyes either ....

    Fabulous faves Michelle.

  20. G'day Michelle. Glad everything turned ok with the termite check. We had this home looked at before we bought it and it was all clear, but we are seriously thinking of getting the house treated at some stage, as this area is a known hot spot for the little nasties. It is not cheap, but it lasts about ten years I think. Those pancakes look just yummy. They were making my mouth water. I do love your Country Garden blocks. I look forward to seeing it finished. I wish I could get my act into gear and get some of my stitching done. I just haven't been able to find the time over the last few weeks, for one reason or another. Take care. Liz...
