"I thought it was a really good idea to decorate the town and enjoyed having my crochet included," Brett told. "I liked seeing my work showing with everyone else and thought the town looked lovely."
Brett's daughter Daphne, 74, explained, "she has always knitted and crocheted all through her life. She has always done all the knitting for the babies and made shawls."
