Thank you

to all who have shared their dream destinations --It has been a fascinating journey. We are all so different with our impressions, ideas and experiences,

and this is one more way to express our individuality! 


Marion's ‘spinning yarn’ adventure trip to Antarctica last December (2010) was the first and practical part of the project. Next is a trip to South Australia to the Mawson section of the Museum there, and of course, there is still the knitting of the replica of Sir Douglas Mawson's Balaclava, and the auctioning to be done. What fabulous results will be achieved for the restoration of the historic

Mawson's Huts!


PS-- We did look for an ice floe for me to sit and be spinning yarn, but we did not find a sizeable, safe one on which to land.


The Competition is now closed,

and the overall winner will be chosen

by 30th June, 2011
