Stars, summer, etc

Lots of activity around C&B Towers this week – Barbara is preparing for something called a holiday and Chris is preparing for classes, gardening and running C&B Enterprises yet again.  Class preparation is always helped along by looking at results from previous classes, so we were delighted to have these pics of two tote bags made following our Tumbling Stars class –

Spotted on a summery walk was this rather appropriate numberplate – we wonder if the owner has worked out the answer to the question …?
