Wendy continues to post daily tutorials on ornaments to make for an advent calendar. She has the stitches out and the prognosis is that the precancerous cells have all been removed. The children in her girl's school are collecting toys for the local Women's and Children's crisis centre. Her girls worked for the money to buy the supplies and Mom crafted hand made bears. Exchange items have also been posted and it looks like a delightful grouping of articles.
Sapna decided to take the motif she made and turn it into a necklace and earring set.

I haven't been posting much because I've been trying to get the lace done for the newsletter. Check out the tatted ice skates, aren't they a hoot?
