Well no holiday for us, although later on one of my oldest friends is coming to visit for a couple of days so a good excuse for a bit of relaxation!
We're beginning to sort through the large pile of poles starting with the Malacca. We've already found some lovely long lengths without any nodes that will make beautiful walking sticks.
These four came from one single length, they measure between 26 and 31", so I'm sure someone will be able to do something with them. I found a tortoiseshell cane top that we'd bought years ago in a box of stuff, it fitted the cane exactly, I was amazed!
