Spooning with Friends
What can I say, we are a group of women with many talents. One that is sort of becoming tradition at festival is hanging spoons off our noses at dinner.
Melly and Jamie Fingal getting ready to spoon in the Hilton bar.
Quilting Arts editor Helen Gregory showed her talent by hanging a spoon on her chin.
Pokey, is a novice at this, but I am sure by next festival she will have mastered this new skill and will be weilding a spoon just as well as a rotary cutter.
