African flower afghan

This is the latest project. An african flower afghan. All the motifs have been done - 91 in total.
Now the process of putting it together is the challenge. Chopping and changing the outlay numerous times and still uncertain of how it should be.

It's a gift that has to be complete by end of May. I am not the worlds fastest crocheter, so fingers crossed!

It's been made with Bendigo wool, in a mixture of 8ply Colonial, Classic and Luxury yarn.

I love Bendigo wool, it's price is good and the quality excellent. I order on-line and it's delivered to my door. How easy is that?

Last year on our holiday, Bendigo was among the many places we visited.

It is a historic city, famous for the "goldrush" days of the 1850's and 60's.

This is a snapshot of the city of Bendigo

Beautiful historic buildings in Bendigo.

A birds eye view of the city. (oh, vertigo was happening here!) We climbed a tower near the beautiful botanic gardens to get this view.

A visit to the Bendigo woollen mills was de rigueur!

Bendigo Pottery was another favourite.

Happy Easter everyone :)


  1. OOh so this is Bendigo!
    Nice to see a photo I've heard all about it.
    I love the blog!
    Great fun these layouts!
    These African Flowers are really nice arn't they? I have seen so many different things made with them, but your Afghan is just so pretty. Great colours you've used there, well done!
    Thanks for stopping by Maree, my garden will look better soon when I have my containers out. I think a little early yet.
    Will pretty it up a bit!
