Neighbour Day and a Simple Daisy Bookmark

Crochet simple daisy bookmark resting on all creatures great and small by james herriot

Recently the Gympie Bone Museum hosted a neighbour day event sponsored by LSFY and funded by a grant from the Gympie Regional Council and Relationships Australia. There was loads of delicious cakes made by our lovely local CWA Gympie ladies and salads from the Bullseye Food Truck. The chocolate “bark” that Deb made was an absolute hit and I’m sure if we hound her enough she’ll get the recipe up on the blog asap.

Even though it rained a little – which is not ideal for a mostly outdoor event – a most fabulous time was had and we got our picture in the local paper 🙂

Kris and Deb get their photo in the local paper. Gympie Today.

We met all sorts of lovely people who dropped by to meet the ladies from our local CWA Gympie and the Gympie Spinners, Weavers and Crafters group. Much knitting, crochet, spinning, fibre arts and chit chat was had and Kris ran a small workshop to make a “Simple Daisy Bookmark”. It is super cute and very easy to crochet. Look below for the recipe.

And that’s how to crochet a simple daisy bookmark.

I had so much fun making this ever so simple pattern and even made a double daisy bookmark
just because. Now I’m off to the library to pick up my next read.
