Wattle on my morning walk

Beautiful blossom.  I always think of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

This is a piece of artwork by May Gibbs, the author of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

If you don’t know of the book it is an old-fashioned favourite of children in Australia.

There is a link here to information and illustrations by May Gibbs.  Well worth a look although it may take a little time to load depending on your browser.

A quick little knit

You can see from this ball of wool that it would knit up into a particular pattern.  I saw it displayed in Stitches’n’Things and thought it would be great for an in-between knit.  I have no big project planned yet and need to get something organised before Le Tour starts on 1st July.

It took just one evening session and of course I had no red buttons to match so had to wait to get red buttons to finish it.

Some additions to Patterson Park

A woodcarver has been busy in the playground at Patterson Park.  Carvings have been made in some of the tall timbers.

‘Take off on an adventure at a moment’s notice’, ‘Find a lookout with a water view -it can change your perspective on everything’, and ‘Be yourself, everyone else is taken’.

The messages are the rules by which one of the park’s namesakes, Meg Patterson, lived.  The land where Patterson Park is located was gifted to Metung by Meg and Jeff Patterson with one wish: for it to remain a space where children were free to play.

The park enjoys full patronage particularly during the summer months.  How lovely to see some worthy quotes in the playing space.
