Such a lovely, sunny day outside but a bit cool inside…not that we noticed. We had so much fibre and colour to feast our eyes on and then all the projects which had been completed or were being completed. Plenty to share and plenty to talk about. Hilary shared the red , felted scarf which she won as a prize at the Victor Harbour spinning group visit. Beautiful work.
