sophie's picks- week 28: KNITTING

I love the idea of knitting,  I love knitted items, I love the texture of real wool. The whole concept seems so relaxing and productive ( insert warm log fire and kitten nearby). 

Can I knit, I hear you ask? No, I cannot! But I did thoroughly enjoy this weeks illustrations.

The following, resonated with me personally

Hope you enjoy!

joanne's picks - week 27: CANBERRA

Ah Canberra! Our nation's great capital. Land of acts and legislation, and perfect town planning. I do love Canberra, but politics is not always its best feature - it is the clustering of the best that Australia has to offer in national arts, sport, literature, historical, cultural and other institutions that makes it a great place to visit.

This week I chose illustrations that struck a chord with me because they represented the diversity of what Canberra has to offer, even its lesser known enchantments, alongside other illos that were simply a feast for the eyes.

nicky's picks - Week 26: SHOES

I'm not a typical shoe loving girl, in fact, I would rather peruse an art shop than go shoe shopping. However, mix the two together and you get a week of visual delight!

Thank you to everyone who has delighted me this week, here are some of the wonderful illustrations that made my heart sing!
