A Bowl of Cherries

Cherries are one of the joys of Christmas in Australia.
They are only in season for a few short weeks. 

Above view of a bowl of red cherries (centre) and the corner of a black laptop computer (right hand side). They are resting on a tabletop covered with a mid-blue tablecloth. The bowl is off-white ceramic with two handles and cast in a filigree lace pattern.

An Awesome Craft Bag!

Lift the flap to access the
large outside pocket.

I've been so busy with petitions and parades that there has barely been any time for blogging so today I will keep it short and sweet (yeah, yeah, you've heard that before), I promise!

Have a look at this awesome craft bag that a family member gave me for my birthday earlier this year.  If you are wondering what to get a crafty friend for Christmas, you could do a lot worse than this; after all, you can never have too many bags to store and tote your crochet projects.

Access All Areas: Disability Pride Parade

Today is the International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD).

The white placard has words painted in purple paint. One cansee the brush strokes. "Access-A'laide" is in mixed case across the top and NOW is in large capitals in the middle.

"Access-A'laide NOW!"
It is a United Nations sanctioned day celebrated internationally which "aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability."

I celebrated by participating in my first ever public rally! A Disability Pride Parade through the streets of Adelaide, South Australia.
