  1. Hi, David!
    Say, what’s happened with your margins? I regularly read your wordpress blog via bloglines, and today your rh margin goes WAY off my page. I have to scrool quite a ways to mark “keep new”. Seems to have started with last week’s long line of Easter Show photos — all in ONE line. (BTW, G’donya!)

  3. You have inspired me to enter a crochet project into the EKKA. I am only new to crochet yet would love my work to be included – something that is not so traditional. Now all i have to do is search for an entry form. Thankyou for the inspiration.
