Anzac Day, 2015


Today's very large, respectful crowd was the largest gathering I have ever seen at the local Anzac Day dawn service.

While this is the Anzac centenary year, I remember particularly relatives who served, and my RAF pilot uncle who was shot down over France. Twice. The second time, he did not return, and he has no known grave. His name is recorded on the memorial at Runnymede.

Wild Tea Cosy: Coral Punk

Inspired by Loani Prior's Coral Punk design, which combines pattern guidelines, free form crochet and what I can best describe as seat-of-the-pantsery, I made a tea cosy. It's nutty, but amusing.

Design is from the book Really Wild Tea Cosies by Loani Prior.
