First and foremost Happy Australia Day to all my Australian friends. I realise that this year the celebrations may be muted by the recent loss that so many families have experienced, but I hope that the sun shines and that you at least feel hope going forward.
You may have noticed that I have displayed this button on my blog for a few days. It links to Sarah London's site which I know many of you already know of as she is a major crochet designer. Her stuff is contemporary and colourful. Specifically, I have linked to her appeal for granny squares to make blankets for flood victims so that they will at least have colour as they rebuild their homes and lives. I made several while watching a film over the weekend and hope to post them today.
I just wanted to mention this on the off chance that someone else might join in. I think its nice to have the chance to do something practical and not just money (which we can ill afford these days) Yes they have to be posted and that costs but it’ll not be much.
Thank you for listening and if you are in Oz, I am raising a virtual beer in cheers to you.
