Phoebe January 2014 Meeting "Show and Tell"

Betts Vidal's April 26-27 workshop will be on the "Frog Prince," determined by
vote at the January meeting. While the "High Maintenance Fairy" lost
the vote this time, there were many Phoebes who would love to learn to make her, too.
We are hoping Betts will teach her at a later date!

Show and Tell

Zanaib's friend Kimberly Mayfield Lynch is pictured
wearing Zanaib's latest hit creations... crocheted "crown" head wraps. The word has spread,
and Zanaib is overwhelmed by orders.
Here is a close-up view of one of Zanaib's crowns.

Zanaib never runs out of ideas... she is amazing. Each crown is an original work of art.

VonZetta made the long trip from Los Banos to join us at the meeting.
We were all overjoyed to see her. We hope to see her more often. She brought with her
the colorful Steelers quilt she has just completed.

Tani made a doll with amazing joints and beautiful, colorful
hair made with eyelash yarn.

This is detailed view of the lovely vest Harlene made and
embellished with yoyo flowers made from men's tie fabrics.

Guest Katie B brought several wonderful items to show us. This was an carved-out altered book,
originally a Readers Digest volume. What a lot of work!
Elizabeth impressed us all with this beautifully sculpted and painted
African mask. She is so talented and creates such amazing
figures and forms from clay.

Another original and wonderful cloth sculpture by Daisy. This one features fabric on which
Daisy printed her own drawings. It is mind-bending that Daisy can create
so many pieces in a single year. Inspiring to us all!

This is the colorful "Wacky Women" friendship altered book Colleen brought for all of us to see.

The inside is just a wonderful as the outside.
A beautiful and creative collaboration by artistic friends.

Pame's ornaments are truly amazing. If you thought last month's pig was great, check these out!

Donna's altered book creation is destined for The Book Shop window display.
This was made before Christine's altered book workshop, but you can see the Donna's
class book in the upper right, also for the window display.

This altered and assembled figure is, of course, the creation of Anne Klocko.
As are the figures seen the in following photos. Talk about prolific! These photos
represent only a portion of the ones she brought to show and tell.
No wonder she is such a well-known and successful artist. 

Totally amazing!!!!
