It's funny how life works. Someone had something I needed on Freecycle. but even more exciting, when I went to collect it from a couple of villages away, she turned out to be arty crafty and possibly just my type of person. She's told me of a craft group in her village and plans for a weekend thing with a fab felt artist that I had unwittingly accosted before Christmas. I walked past the felt artist and her wonderful scarf while shopping - told her how amazing it was and was blown away that she had made it and also taught. Talk about serendipity!
