While I thank my lucky stars that the snow has missed us, this time.
Thoughts are being given to all of the people who's lives are being made difficult by it.
We do have exceptionally cold weather it was -7 at lunch time and is now dropping fast.
The pine tree looked very pleasing, rimmed over with frost and I thought I would share it with you.

Hi well Sensory Dragon asked to see the church, so I popped down to town and took a couple of pictures of the original.
The last one is the copy. Three feet by four feet long.
It is a wooden model frame, with the knitted church covering it.
There are another four to make so I will keep you informed about them.

Today is the day that the knitted St Denys Church, is to be handed over to the vicar of the originl St Denys Church in Sleaford, in time for the Christmas services.
All of us who had worked on the church, met at The Hub and were delighted to be invited to a lunch by the ArtsNK staff.
Thank you ArtsNK.
Its was followed by a photo shoot by the local press.
It was nice to join together again with group members Marion, Val, Pat, Sheila, Audrey and Dawn, this time without the stress of deadlines.
I was very surprised after the photos had been taken,
to be presented with the lovely flowers you see above and a thank you card signed by all group members, for
joining them and assisting in the completion of the project.
My thanks to you ladies for the gift and the opportunity to become involved in your project.

I thought that you may like to see today's change.
Unbroken blue sky, which was very welcome, and wonderful sunshine.
Its still very cold but I can live with that as long as the sun shines.

The church has resided at my home for two weeks, for me to finish off the windows towers and buttresses.
It is now done and on Friday it was returned to the ArtNK studio.
As with all larger projects, there is a feeling of anticlimax when the task is finished.
I had put tasks aside to complete this so its just a matter of getting back in gear.
