Hi there Owlies,

time for another get together to see if we can still work successfully when we have consumed our quota of wine. It takes quite a lot of testing to get this absolutely correct, so please be patient.

Spring is also upon us, so it is time to put away our heavy winter wools and start working with lovely light weight summer cottons.

This week is a bring your own work, and we will have some pattern books to look at. Please bring along any finished items so we can all see them.

It is getting closer to Christmas, so perhaps time to look at making a few Christmas gifts?

Looking foward to seeing you,

Lianne and Julie.
