Who Said The WI Are Stuffy?

Good morning.  No card today.  Instead I thought I would show some pictures of  the activities of me and my WI friends over the past week or so.  As I said we have just reached our centenary and this is quite an achievement.  Our group is varied and range in age from 30 to over 80 yet everybody gets on. We have planned a whole year of celebration - I think we will be shattered by the end - the committee in particular.  But it will all be worth it.

Perhaps you had better grab a coffee (or you favourite tipple), pull up a chair and settle down because this post is rather picture heavy! Our members have been very busy knitting and crocheting scarves for the trees and making hundreds and hundreds of pompoms!!!!

This looks lopsided because we forgot to take the picture before we hung it high up on top of the wall of the village hall.  It took about 740 pom poms - ask me how I know!!! If I never see another pom pom again it will be too soon - well, I might have got over it by next year!

Beautiful crochet work on the bike - a labour of love by Janice

Two passengers who hitched a lift - wearing seat belts I might add!

the culprits - caught in the act

another tree with little bunnies, ducks, bees and ladybirds

a child spotted enjoying our work - makes it all worthwhile

We had a fabulous evening at our centenary dinner on Wednesday.  I'll bore you with those photos later.

Well that's it for now.  I'll have a card to post in a day  or two.

Take care and enjoy your day.
