Lovely Surprise

Maria from The Next Stage blog recently had a give away and guess who won ??  Woo Hoo ... yay .... I was the lucky recipient of this cute bag that Maria got from the California Design exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery. If you'd like to read all about this very interesting exhibition, Maria blogged about it here.

I could feel something squishy inside the bag and discovered this gorgeous ball of wool hiding away just waiting to give me a very unexpected but very pleasant surprise. As you can see it is 10ply 100% wool and is just on 100g - I'd like to make something nice for myself with it and would welcome any suggestions.

Thank you so much for having this very generous give-away Maria - receiving your lovely surprise today really made my week.

My daughter and I are going to the annual Royal Canberra Show tomorrow. We're planning to get there when the gates open so we can get a showbag that one of our local radio stations are selling. The bags contain lots of great things to the value of $1,000 for just $20 with all proceeds going to the Cancer Support Group. They only have a thousand bags to sell so you do have to be early. Hopefully I might also be able to take some pictures of the crochet and knitting exhibits to show you.



  1. So glad the parcel arrived safely Dorothy and I popped the wool in because I knew you loved to crochet. It came from a newish yarn store in Paddington, called Knitch. Anissa,the owner, has gorgeous yarns and'd live her store! Lol

  2. Congrats on your win.. love the bag and the yarn! How about a hat or bag with it? That show sounds fun!
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. You're a lucky gal! Love that pinky-purply yarn. Have fun at the show. Wish I could go with y'all.

  4. A well deserved win for you Dorothy :-) and very generous of Maria
