On the weekend I was lucky enough to take a mini road trip to Warrnambool with my bestie. We left Melbourne early on Sunday morning (well in truth not too early) and then had a nice leisurely drive down to Warrnambool (about 4 hours from Melbourne) and then on Monday morning I met with the poppy knitters at Warrnambool Library for a couple of hours. We had a lovely morning, chatting, knitting, crocheted, exchanging stories and ideas. So a big thank you to Lisa McDonald for organising … I look forward to seeing lots of pics of you poppy making exploits. We came back though Hamilton with a short visit to the library there … they are also organising poppy making workshops and collection through Jacinta Wareham. It is so heartening to see so many local communities taking up the gauntlet and running with it. Enjoy your poppy making ladies and gents. Looking forward to seeing your contributions in due course.
