1. We are so enjoying Winter here that Dreamworld ( our version of Disneyland ) is manufacturing snow for the kids who are presently at the beach on school holidays.
Lots of Queensland kids have never seen real snow so instead of going to the beach to swim in the surf they can go and play in the man-made snow.
2. On the next page in today's paper is this story about a kookaburra.
It was photographed recently in the wild with this child's stuffed knitted toy in its mouth.
3. And finally, a progress report on my crochet class.
I've found working on the foundation chain very difficult but...
double crochet is going OK with a slight tension problem.
Experimenting with a double crochet edge.
and treble ( only the navy blue bit is my work ) around this granny square is going well.
So progress is being made.
I'm practising and coming to grips with it a bit better and soon I'll be doing granny squares.
I'd better hurry up or Winter will be finished !
