In the morning, Ricki led us in a felt making session. Although the others made small felt bags, I spent the time making these colourful balls for a project I had in mind.
After a delicious shared lunch, Susan then showed us how to make these fabulous lanterns from dogwood sticks, tissue paper and PVA. She had made forty of them last year for her partner's birthday and I thought I might try to make half a dozen to hang in the dining room over Christmas...
but so far this is the only one! It was a lovely relaxed sharing day, far more in keeping with the Christmas spirit than much of the frantic activity that seems to take place this time of year.
And some wonderful news... Sandra became a grandmother for the second time when her daughter gave birth to a little girl on Saturday. Congratulations to all!
