Haven’t posted anything for a long time, managed to get my A into G & do another small run of Wig stands for the breast cancer ladies, this is a project that all of the 50 to 60 Guilds in NZ participate in, collectively we do several hundreds a year. My SIL dropped of some 2 1/2” ply so thought I’d give it a go here
There is also some small bowls we do also for the Kids Can at our Local Starship Hospital here in Auckland, these are filled with small gifts (used to be sweets but the PC brigade ended that). Most of the guys leave the bowls pretty blank but I like to have a play with the Pyro & some colour.

Well done Pete. You are a good man.
.... and about the bowls, who can resist a little detail? A man needs to have some fun.
