We certainly had a great variety.
We exchanged ornaments and techniques on making them.
Priscilla received a special pin cushion made by Jeanne out of a sweater Priscilla started knitting and never finished. Jeanne bought the sweater at our auction.

The following pictures are examples of the crafts that Martha brought back from Central Asia. The silk rug is beautiful.
Just to see the different examples of crafts in another country was great. Thanks Martha for sharing. She spent several weeks in Turkmenistan and Ubekistan.
