I’m back in the yarn business again. I wasn’t going to, I know, but I just couldn’t help myself. I love beautiful yarns. I can’t in all honesty say it was against my will. When I was given the opportunity to design them to my very own specifications in the colours I desire I was like a moth to a flame.
I’ve always been in the search for the perfect yarn, aren’t we all? Normally my first choice would be wool and there are many wools that I love but let’s face it I live in Queensland, Australia and there are only 6 weeks a year I can wear it, and even then I would have to stand outside, on the football field, after the sun goes down to wear it.
Sometimes I get inspired by cute things, tiny little things of beauty. And I just have to re-create them. I don’t know if that is just because I can, or maybe just to see if I can. Sometimes the impulse is too strong to ignore.
As part of the 2015 Anzac commemoration, the 5000 Poppies project will be “planting” a field of more than 5000 poppies in Federation Square Melbourne.
The 5000 poppies project has been created to commemorate more than a century of service from Australian men and women in war, conflicts and peacemaking operations.
