Christmas time for Roomies

 It is Christmas time for Roomies Artists.
They joined residents from neighboring boarding houses for a shindig yesterday.
The fruit punch was full of fresh rockmelon and watermelon, 
and bubble sets were on every table.

 The band played so many songs everyone knew and many sang along.
I loved watching the faces.

Kevin enjoyed himself so much he had to walk the excitement off.
It was fun and games trying to find him,
but he returned safely after a trip to the local Macdonalds.

A fellow Roomies artist and philosopher,
Leon danced till the feast appeared.

The punch flowed..

And they all danced the arvo away

Getting ready for Christmas

Clarrice  and Dave are working on window wire tapestry with Christmas themes.

 Dave is finishing off a large tree that features Clarrice's signature dogs.
All her dogs face left.

Small works of window wire become brooches and seem to be very popular at this time of year.
Want one? Leave a comment and a volunteer will get back to you.

Roomies has a new blog helper

Roomies Art space just got itself a blog helper - Me!
I really look more like this:

 I've been a guerilla knitter for a few years now, 
and on a large project, Clarrice came and helped. 
But Clarrice things putting good knitting on a pole
is a waste of wool, so we dont do that so much now.

I help out at Roomies Art Space and spend time with Clarrice one on one. We do art trips, work on her soft toys or window wire tapestries or have manicures.
Her window wire tapestries are very popular and she has sold many.

I hope to one day set up an online shop
for her work and the work of other artists at Roomies. 
Thanks for coming by 
and I hope you stick around.
