Once everything's finalised I'll let you know, and we'll be then changing our focus to getting grants to set up things like a kitchen area, heating, carpeting etc. It's given us hope for the future. We certainly do appreciate the premises we've been able to hire while hunting for a permanent home, those venues have been wonderful to us, but we've always wanted our own place.
Today's display table had some lovely items on it
|A toddler sized hand-dyed, hand-spun, machine knitted square neck jumper by Heather Phillips. The colour was more tealy than is apparent in this photo. A beautiful piece of work.|
|Carol Hyndman created this beautiful jewelery set from the 2011 challenge fibre. There are 2 pairs of earrings, a necklace and a felted brooch.|
|Sandra Dain spun and handknit this lovely jumper for a pre-schooler; the colour was more brown than in the photo.|
|Mary Catherine spun this silk on a spindle and then Navajo plied it for a lovely skein or three. Her work as always is impeccable.|
Next week is our committee meeting, hopefully I'll have more news from that regarding future events. There gap-filler event this month on a Sunday rather than the usual Saturday; the 18th March if I remember correctly at Deans Bush amongst the quilters work. Here's hoping the weather is better than it is today.
