Mount Lofty Botanic Garden

A view across a formal lawn with tree plantings with Adelaide Hills in the distance
The Mount Lofty Botanic Garden in the Adelaide Hills is a very popular destination for South Australians, especially in autumn when the foliage changes colour. Here are more photos from a recent visit

Nature is a great inspiration.  May these photos evoke the creative spark within.

Dotty Hand-warmers

'Getting busy' with fingerless mitts.


At last, a finished project to share!

When I 'got busy' earlier this month, it included crocheting some fingerless mitts for a deserving young man.

Brighton Jetty Anzac Display

During the week of Anzac Day, I went down to Brighton Beach (South Australia) to see the commemorative display of knitted and crocheted poppies. It had a very brief mention in my previous blog entry but today I can share more photos and details about the project.

Red poppies, crocheted and knitted, arranged to form the words "LEST WE FORGET" bordered by poppies on a rectangular mesh frame which is attached to the railings of Brighton Jetty. The jetty can be seen in the background. It is night time.
