Rugs at The Gardens House

Jo Wild has sent me a link to a great slide show of the rugs that were worked on at the hooking weekend at The Gardens House. It was put together by Rita at Gone Rustic at St Marys.

If you live in Tasmania and are interested in hook rugs, feel free to contact Jo at the Lasting Impressions website.

National Parks Hitch?

The Mercury newspaper has raised questions over the creation of a national park which includes the Bay of Fires. An article suggests that the state government budget cuts to the parks portfolio has raised real questions on whether there will be sufficient funding to go ahead. The state government says that community consultations are still going on.

The suggestion of a larger national park to cover north-eastern Tasmania came after the Bay of Fires region was named the world's best travel destination for 2009 by Lonely Planet travel guides.
