Cas Holmes Workshop

Here are pictures of some of the work inspired by Cas Holmes.  A very enjoyable day was had by all with a great deal of chat and expletives!

Cas was very enthusiastic and let us into her many secrets.  We will once again be on the lookout for more interesting scraps to add to the ones already waiting to be used. 

Some of the photographs are of Cas's own work and others are of  members work 'in progress'
