A magic day in Lachlan – great weather for the Hobart Show. A smaller gathering in the Lachlan Hall today with much going on around the south of the State. However, there was yet another fine array of craft on display and on the go at today’s meeting. More spinning, embroidery, crochet and a very grand Bear! Oh, and don’t forget the beautiful flowers and the Lemon Coconut Slice!  Recipe below:
