You are making me jealous again, Maureen!!!!! How I would Love to be there!
Hmmm! Must finish this competition piece, and then get stuck into the Challenge piece as soon as possible. I have the ideas lined up to work it. I just need the time...!
I really enjoy the challenge pieces. It is fun to see how different the same design can turn out.
Is there a theme for the Exhibition, or do they just need lots of finished pieces to display, - like last year?
The current challenge piece is quite nice, and workable. I was thinking about it.
The ideas are there - but time seems to be galloping!!!!! I like that patterns can be enlarged or reduced, and extra bits put on, so one can make it "personal". I think the whole basic idea is Great.
How can it be April 1st already -- well it is here in Oz.!!
