Hi there! It’s Wednesday and another night for us to get together, share and talk about our projects. Last week we started our 4th Season of the WNSC, with a fabulous prize package and an easier way of uploading your photo’s, and easier to view and vote. We are enjoying all of the wonderful items you are making and sharing. Last week I was working on the Hoodie Vest. I need to make 2 of those and was only able to get one complete. I could work on the other again tonight, but I wanted to try something new.
