‘We collected all the pieces of bunting in that we had made since the last meeting (one is almost complete now, can be seen on the table). Some of us continued to make more bunting while others either made knitted mice or decorated ones that had already been made. See the photo for our completed works of art!’
‘We will continue to work on the bunting and mice in preparation for the craft fair in April.
Next meeting we plan to make some lavender/herb bags and the oat/flower/essential oil bath sachets we learnt to make at a previous meet, also for the craft fair.’
Tansy concludes, ‘On a personal note I really enjoyed being able to share some of my knitting knowledge with others in the group. Looking forward to the next meeting.
