Recycling.....

14th February 2016

The weather has improved this week, cold but sunny....

I had my first gardening session in the park on Friday, planting up some donated Sweet William...

...so lovely to see the the new growth in the beds...




....Karen and Avril busy planting!


>>>>>>>>
Our next park project involving the community and Left Coast....




....this is the idea for the living stage, so exciting!!


The next 3 Saturdays we will be hosting a 'Tea Party' in the park, cakes donated by local shops, all free, and asking people about their memories of time spent in the park. The memories will be used in a performance in the park in May on the living stage.

Today I have been decorating jars and bottles with hand made crochet mats bought at the charity shops and ribbons from my stash.....


.....these will be used as small vases for the 'pallet tables' when we chat and record people's memories...


.....posies of Rosemary and Periwinkle from the sensory bed will fill the vases...




....so glad I volunteered for this group when I retired 8 years ago!!

>>>>>>>>>

We are taking the yarn bombing down this week and washing then storing for next year!

As you know I have been enjoying my slow stitching and hand embroidery so treated myself to these two books with Christmas money....



....have enjoyed looking through them but haven't actually used any ideas yet!

Watch this space.....
