Excellent work this week - all working well and enjoying our contributions for the exhibition. Well done all who came out in the ghastly weather! We've started leaving some of our finished work in the storage shed at the Arts Centre. Some great things happening. Keep watching for more and more updates. Well done to Elona for persevering with the swatches to make absolutely certain the gauge is right before starting your cardigan. It's so easy to neglect this step in our impatience to start, only to have the end result be a big disappointment.
Welcome back Edith & Gillian, from your travels. Christine is probably our most prolific artist! Her large birds are amazing - see the photos. Elaine has produced a basket of exquisite sock-wool birds, and Alison's cushions are providing inspiration for many.
We need to decide on process to list for the pieces we are happy to be sold - it would be good to do that quite soon. Carry on the GREAT work!
