'Bobbin Lace' by Rosemary Brown of North Norfolk U3A

Every stitch in bobbin lace is made by twisting 4 threads together, wrapping them round a pin, and retwisting the 4 threads to complete the stitch. If the threads do not connect in this way the pattern does not develop as expected.

'Pebbles' by Rosemary Gibbs of Rugby U3A

'Pebbles' by Rosemary Gibbs of Rugby U3A

People have been trying to reach out to each other in our friendly village. I have noticed the rainbows in windows but also messages painted on stones placed on seats, walls, verges and driveways as I walk around getting exercise. I took photos of some of them using my iPhone and then connected them in Photoshop.
