A new start

One that doesn't involve a winter theme (that some of you have picked up on... lol). It is Their Song by Blackbird Designs.

This week has been so sad with what has been happening in Australia. As well as the devastation to lives and homes, there is also the wildlife that has suffered.

So in honour of the amazing wildlife Australia has, I thought I would put together a mosaic of some of my Aussie wildlife photos.

Better still, in Australia you can actually get hands on with some of the wildlife!

If you want to help in some way the Red Cross, Salvation Army and Wildlife Victoria are collecting donations.

Also, the lovely Karen from The Stitching Post is collecting donations of fat quarters and skeins of DMC to help the crafters who have lost everything.

Have a great weekend!

I love that pattern! I have had my eye on it too, but sadly it will have to wait for a while.
I just have way too much WIPs now!

Yes, I have been thinking the victims of those terrible fires all week. Also the wildlife that is destroyed. Here we also have bushfires in summer (not anything like what has happened in Australia.) This afternoon (I am sending this on Valentine's Day)I am going to see the movie: Australia. So happy Valentine's day to you over there in NZ and happy knitting on that green scarf!

Hi Rowyn, thanks for sharing those amazing photos. It breaks my heart when animals suffer.
That chart is in my stash, too.
