Birthday giveaway and Vic Feltmakers.

I finally had a chance to catch up with Narelle, the winner of our Precious Purl Birthday giveaway, at the Vic Feltmakers monthly meeting in Hartwell yesterday. I had been invited as a trader and had a wonderful time meeting many new friends and catching up with many familiar faces from our customer base.

Narelle, the workshop coordinator for Feltmakers, was a delighted winner, never having won anything!!! she says.

A long time between posts thanks to communication problems between Picasa and Blogger!! Thanks John for sorting it all out.
