Hambleton Sports Awards 2017

Sun and Moon yarn bowls

Moon yarn bowls have had a temporary rest from being in the shop. I wanted to alter the design on these pieces slightly for the Moon side.

York Art Gallery

York Art Gallery is right in the heart of York, its so easy to find and well worth a visit.
