We had a fantastic night on Wednesday, the putting together of our project from the week before. On the 6th we had a patchwork picture group project, where a large picture was cut into squares, and each member took a piece and "upscaled" their own piece in any medium. We patched everyone's pieces together this week, how fantastic does this look!!!!
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new year.
