Hi Fellow Knitters,

Thank you knitters and crafters at the Sewing, Stitching and Hand Craft Show in Adelaide for your warm welcome at our first show in South Australia.  Ferg and I enjoyed displaying and demonstrating our wares. Ferg was chuffed to sell many of the Amish Style Swifts he had designed and built.  I was quite stoked when a few people thought my baby blanket Sailing to Dreamland was machine knitted. There is no doubt that careful blocking produces the best results.

The venue  at Adelaide showground, was wonderful. We stayed in the adjacent, brand new caravan park at the showground. Our cosy caravan was parked just 80 metres from the rear door of the venue. How good is that? There were no animals in residence at the showground but the lively murals were there to remind us of the primary use of this venue.

Driving from Sydney to Adelaide in two days, with an overnight stop in Hay, was quite exhilarating. We felt so carefree! It had been 18 months since we had been on a road trip with our caravan. Just watching the clouds form and develop is a simple pleasure when crossing the Hay Plain. We delighted in choosing picturesque lunch stops. The massive trunk on this tree in Murrayville Victoria, was a winner. The last timber Allan truss bridge, with a lift span, on the Murray river is at Tooleybuc. It is to be kept and strengthened. Hooray!

Our next show is the four day Craft Alive show in Canberra beginning on Thursday 13th May 2021 at Thoroughbred Park Racecourse, 1 Randwick Road, Lyneham, ACT.  We hope to see and chat with many ACT local crafters.
