A great afternoon

We had a fantastic meeting yesterday and not just because we had cakes made by 2 of our members. Can you see the cake tin on the table and how much they are being enjoyed?

Miriam and Ann are enjoying a joke as usual. Miriam demonstrated a new technique and we all had a go, we are not finished yet, so I'm not going to tell you what we are going to make. We have decided to make some things for the Embroiderer's Guild Sales table in November. Watch this space!

Sue has already made two quilted bags which are going to be sold. I was so disappointed when my battery finished before I could take a photo of the large bag. She was the 'Bag Lady' for the day, we usually call Miriam by that name as she loves making bags too.

You can see that we are still bringing together our sections for the Snowdonia view. They will all be joined together at our next meeting.

Below you can see what we were all doing after Miriam's demonstration. Unfortunately I don't have Joan's sample as I seem to have had a bit of a shake when I was taking the photo. Sorry. Joan is going to be reading this blog regularly from now on, she has just bought a laptop and is now on broadband. Well done Joan. Rhiannon is already enjoying hers. I'd like to take this opportunity of wishing her well, she is going to hospital for a hip replacement at the beginning of October. Hwyl fawr Rhiannon.

Those are really cool! I have recently made something that looks simular, by coincidence. How are yours done? I painted wet tissue paper with watercolor paint and the when it dried I tore it up and stuck it onto cardsock with laundry starch. I want to post someting on the bulletin board at the stable and I wanted it to stand out from the farrier ads. I put a snap of it on my blog yesterday.

Hi Cara.
These do use tissue paper, but also wrapping paper, hitchen paper and anything else that is not too thick. I went to see yours and it looks great. we will have to have a go at the watercolours too.
