Spots in Belladonia.

Late Friday afternoon we finished our first leg of the Nullarbor, 242.5km, and I finished hooking my 20 crocheted circles in squares into long scarves.

We were in Belladonia in western Australia. A tiny dusty dot on the edge of highway one. There was nothing there except a roadhouse and a caravan park with a couple of straggly tenants, a western themed toilet and a scary looking motel. And there was us. Us and the scarves.

There were crocheted spots everywhere.

What fun.
What else are you meant to do on a Friday afternoon in the middle of nowhere?
To my farmer boy;
Happy twelfth on 12/12.
I adore you.
You are so ace.
You totally rock my socks. xx

To all of you;
I hope you have the most surprising and wonderful week.
I'm sure you are ace too. xx


  1. Kate I love your circles in squares they look fantastic, the colours are great.........

    They actually remind me of indiginous artwork.

    It will look wonderful when it's sewn together and will remind your of your adventures with Miss Frankie Blue.
