WHAT A DAY - the big Fergie rally battled on through wind and rain. low grey skies and the sound of bagpipes gave a real scottish air to the masses of fergies parked up and down darling street. 

People weren't deterred though, umbrellas  went up and the day proceeded, prizes for fergies ranged from 'most feral fergie' to all kinds of imaginative titles, so nutty i can't remember any of them.

The markets were a washout, but the makers who decided to set up for a second day were warm in the town hall. Glenis's community weaving project proceeded and i had a go. and a giant knitting nancy has been set up at the visitors centre - the community can all have a go using tied together old scarves, sheets, cut up jumpers (mine) to contribute to a state wide 'world's biggest ball of thread' attempt. it'll be part of an exhibition 'Threads of our Community' later in the year.   
                    Bridgit and Gwynneth from our makers group get into

                    the knitting nancy project.  it took a while for us all to
                    remember how to get it started

I popped into the op shop next door and there was this funny man on an instrument that could be switched to play clarinet, sax, trumpet etc. and the lovely  lady who works in the op shop, laughing and dancing :0)  I had a good wander, rugged up in beret, scarf, coat, boots, gloves and umbrella.  It's so weird,  this morning the sky is blue and it's back to normal winter weather.
