While we do not like to admit it, some of us are madly trying to finish those hand made presents. If only we had not sold all those scarves at the November sale we would be finished by now.
Earlier this month, we celebrated the past year of friendship and creative efforts with a pot luck lunch. Great food and good companionship along with the cheques from the sale made it a very festive event indeed.
As we have been busy with other activities this month, I thought it might be fun to review some previous works that have a red and green theme. So, the following is a collection of old photographs. Some of the photos are from previous winter sales including the felted sheep on the wreath and the tree. They went to good homes in 2012.

There are many different ways to interpret a scarf from light and airy,almost decorative, to dense, warm and functional. Like tea towels, scarves are excellent projects for learning new techniques. They are fun to weave or knit and a welcome gift. The scarves pictured here are very different.

We will either be taking in the sun on a warm beach or back in the studio in January. In the meantime, enjoy the Christmas carols and the cookies.
