The South Eastern Times : April 8th 2014
The South Eastern Times, Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 5 www.thesoutheasterntimes.com.au NEWS 5 CRAFTSPEOPLE from around the region gath- ered in Millicent for the Geltwood and Tall Timbers presentations on the weekend. A small crowd gathered in the Millicent Visitor Information Centre on Sunday to celebrate the craftsmanship and kinship of woodworking and quilting. Wattle Range Mayor Peter Gandolfi praised the efforts of the five entrants who competed in the four categories of the Tall Timbers woodworking competition. "A lot of work and talent goes into creating beautiful pieces of craft, as we can see from the 18 pieces on display," Mr Gandolfi said. "The competition not only recognises the talents of local woodworkers, but also recognises the timber industry of the region." Mount Gambier's Bruce Wurst was crowned as winner in the furniture category with his stringybark wave-inspired sculptural table Surf's Up. Mr Wurst collected two more wins in the sculp- ture category for his Sheoak freeform sculpture Emergence and in the people's choice category for his bull-oak and steel sculptural piece. Rod Gibbs of Millicent won the wood turning category with his Tasmanian huon pine Bird's Eye Bowl, with second going to Kevin Treloar's 62-piece segmented radiata pine, cypress and merbau fruit bowl. Following the Tall Timbers presentations, Geltwood committee member Diane Keatley announced Raelene Smith as winner of the Geltwood quilting challenge competition. A total of 17 quilts were entered in the Geltwood quilting challenge competition and will be donated to the Little Heroes Foundation to support children and families living with cancer and other serious illness. "It's always hard to give a quilt away because it takes so long and so much effort to make a quilt," Ms Keatley said. "This year has been excellent and we've had the most entries that we've ever had." Second and third places went to Dianne Kelly and Jenny Lonergan, while the viewer's choice was won by Christine Lamont for the second consecutive year.

Millicent Your week by the stars Week Commencing: April 7th BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK Take a strong sense of loyalty and a deep sense of devotion and combine with brittle wit and extreme impatience, and the result? - you of course. In romance, your more than direct approach brings results. 638760 ARIES March 21 - April 20 It is time to change from that comfortable old style and present your ideas in a more flamboyant way. If you have taken a vow that says for better or worse, this is the week to enjoy the better. TAURUS April 21 -May 22 Your loved one may seem overly eager to push his/her opinions on you. It's only a way of letting out steam, so don't take it personally. The weekend accents work and a chance to make some extra cash. GEMINI May 23 - June 21 This is a good week for making arrangements for future events. The generosity of someone you barely know touches you and news of a romantic nature makes you positively glow. CANCER June 22 - July 22 Unexpected expenses balance small financial gains. A request appeals so much to your ego, you have trouble saying no. Be warned! Health needs should be taken more seriously. LEO July 23 - August 22 Coincidences dominate the week. The key to a successful week is to make the most of any chance meetings. Prepare too, for a lecture from those who look after your finances. VIRGO August 23 - September 22 Make a triple effort to remain calm among testy friends. A home improvement project could receive a setback around the weekend, but finances should appear much brighter next week. L I BRA September 23 - October 22 Ideas about your job or an academic programme are changing. To switch or not to switch is the question and an older relative could offer wise counsel. Your sense of humour is in great form. You could be a marvellous stand up comic! SCORPIO October 23 - November 21 News this week can be unreliable. Stories are exaggerated and rumours fly fast. Follow up original ideas promptly - that is before they are borrowed. SAGITTARIUS November 22 - December 22 The world is your oyster this week. Pampering is the theme, especially from family and close friends. A change of direction in your work environment could take place later in the week. CAPRICORN December 23 - January 20 Your life is an open book and you are ready to share ex- citing news with the world. Make no assumptions about work that is supposed to be done for you. Check up of- ten, and be a little aggressive if necessary. AQUARI US January 21 - February 19 It is easy to be deceived this week. Your work mates may use flattery to get you to take on extra workloads. You may misinterpret the motives of loved ones. PISCES February 20 - March 20 Loved ones may seem a little gruff or a little rushed, while you are in a mood to take life very casually. This a great week for joining groups, especially sports related ones. There is an excellent potential for introductions.
