Almost the end of the month….

Oh no, a few days left of the month and Red Dirt is just 17 days away & closely followed by Artists For A Cause a week later!

Oops missed the 1st October Meet Up!

8 days until Art For Heaven’s Sake…. Last week I focused on finishing Christmas wall hangings and made a raggy Christmas tree throw. I’ve cut, sewn and quilted during the day accompanied by the audio book called “Eyes of the Overworld” by Jack Vance, written in the sixties.. Oh what fun. Our hero never seemsContinue Reading
