Warm Light and Comfort Colours on York Street, Sydney

The window display of a needlecraft shop. Against a background of crocheted blanket and plain hessian sacking, colourful balls of wool tumble from basket and bag amid examples of embroidery kits, knitting needles, bags, embroidered straps and labels, and bundles loops of thread. A tall arrangement of flowers fills the middle, with a tiny small potted succulent at its base, and on the right is a mannequin’s head and shoulders wearing loops of thick, knitted scarf in autumn colours, and a floppy knitted beret in black and yellow. At the back, on the left, an upstretched mannequin’s hand emerges from a green knitted wrist-warmer.
