Hope you've all recovered from our last snowstorm. What a lot of FUN that was!! It is great for snow shoeing now. Great place to go is the Barrington Town forest or Stonehouse Pond, maybe I'll see you there.
Here is an up date of the Bloomers meetings since November 19th
Coleen Smead had a wreath making workshop at her house. Had a great time with everyone pitching in to bring assorted greens, pinecones, berries and other interesting plants to add to the wreaths. The wreaths came out great and all very different. thanks Coleen for hosting and for the cocoa, tea and cookies also.
December was our annual Christmas gathering and Yankee swap which was at JoAnn's this year. Everyone contributed to the meal, and JoAnn had cooked a ham, great food shared by all in attendance. After the meal we did the Yankee swap which is always lots of fun. everyone also brought personal care products to donate to the Food Pantry in Barrington. JoAnn, thank you so very much for hosting the gathering, your house was so beautifully decorated and welcoming.
Adam Pearson's art students completed the sculpture and set it all up in the town garden. Looks great!
January 21st We had a Decorative Birdhouse workshop at Pottery Paddock in Rochester with Ruth Caron. We had 8 in attendance. Great time was had by all. Ruth had been collecting all kinds of barks, pinecones, berries, greenery and other dried flowers to use for decorating wooden bird houses. Everyone got real creative and all were so very different. Thanks to Ruth for sharing her creative ideas and her workshop.
