Elizabeth’s quilts and knitting.
Maureen’s, Rachel’s and Marilyn’s knitting.

Frances taught a workshop on how to make pom-poms with flower motifs on them. We used commercially made pom-pom makers.
There was some discussion as to what pom-poms could be used for. If you have any suggestions, please use the comments section on this post to continue the conversation.
