Clare’s Lego Blanket

This blanket was completed by Claire. It is for a colleague of hers who is obsessed with lego. The blanket was made for his very young son who loves Duplo. As you can see the blanket is made to imitate the lego blocks. Lots of time and effort has created this rather fun blanket that his son will be sure to love. By Margaret.

An Amazing Coincidence

On my recent trip to Newcastle to see the art gallery, I stumbled upon the The Olive Tree Market. These markets are beautiful. They are in a lovely park with music playing, plenty of great food stalls and an abundance of artisan stalls filled with stunning hand made items. So I was wandering around oohing and aahing, thinking about the obscene amount of money I could spend here, when I came across a stall with all the pieces signed Nicole Berlach. All of her drawings were amazing but I particularly loved the one of the cicada, which you can see to the left of Nicole.  I commented to her that it was an unusual surname and that I knew someone who used to be a member of our guild with that very same surname. Well, it turns out that our friend Sue Berlach is Nicole’s mother-in-law. ‘Wow’, we both exclaimed. So we had a nice little chat and took a photo which you can see above.  What a great day that was!
