I've had a few creative few weeks. One of the excitements has been my story "It's not your picnic Oscar' published in the March edition of 'School Magazine.'
It's actually a rather gruesome cover, but Oscar is a harmless little dog wanting to discover an Oscar party all his own. This idea germinated in a park in Western Australia from a comment a lady with a dog made. I tried many versions, mainly picture book text until Oscar evolved into the story of an dog who lived with old Jim at the local rubbish tip.
Some stories can years to shape.
As well as writing, I've enjoyed two forms of craft. I've wanted to knit some dish cloths pattern here.
And these are what I've made so far from thrifted cotton.
Here is a sample.
