I acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which I live and work: the Wurundjeri and neighbouring Boonwurrung people; and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. I pay my respects to their Elders; past, present and emerging.

Spending isolation at their queer share-house on the outskirts of Naarm (Melbourne), Thea and Bonnie bake a Women’s Weekly cake decorated with a cricket pitch, Ella and Sarah nurse their cat who is recovering from a traumatic surgery, Thea weaves Bonnie a scarf in Port Adelaide colours which she wears while she watches, heartbroken, as they lose to Richmond in the preliminary final. Thea, Bonnie, Ella and Sarah, like many others, are dealing with job insecurity, social isolation and boredom. Now more than ever, they turn to their chosen family for support, even if that is in the form of watching an episode of The Bachelorette together every evening.

Thea and Bonnie Bake a Women’s Weekly Cricket Cake is the outcome of Ella Sowinska’s BLINDSIDE at-home residency.  A series of three episodes published on Instagram.
