    Hazel  --  when I first made sticks my OH asked what i wanted a stick for my answer was for when i get old and infirm to which she replied then you had better start using it, and me only 27.

    Wow, they're amazing. I'm glad I started this thread.

    Joybell, I've never thought of using bark, but what a good idea, and so clever to think of shapes to cut them into.

    Doghouse Riley, I'm impressed with the jewellery your wife makes, and such a good pass time for her

    Hazel, your crochet is so neat and even. I'm hopeless at crochet.

    Flyfifer, what can I say! You're a professional. They are really beautiful.

    id better post this before I go back a page. I might lose it otherwise.

    Hello Edd. I wondered where you were. Alls well here except for freezing nights and heavy frosts in the mornings image. Oh, and also Internet and telephone problems. There is talk about the NBN (National Broadband Network) being promised to our district, but it's mucking up our existing systems. I think one lot don't know what the other lot are up to with getting ready for the changeover. We are expecting a technician today to tell us if we will be suitable for NBN or not. image.

    anyway, have a good sleep.
