An Enchanting Evening With the Faries

The theme of the May Phoebe Meeting was faries... or angels... or any other enchanting winged creatures. Marcella brought a "Flying Phoebe" name tag made from the pattern created by Elinor Peace Bailey. "Show and Tell" produced an amazing number of beautiful creations members brought to share.

Bonnie brought one of her more recent flat dolls... this one a guardian angel complete with wide-spreading wings she made to exchange with a friend.

Suzanne brought a curly-haired garden fairy with gossamer wings.
Betts shared her diva twig doll dressed in vintage stone washed silk.

She also exhibited her exquisite fairy doll. A perfect example of her attention to minute details evident in all her creations.

This is one of the numerous fairies Sharon has made over the years and sold in craft shows. So very cute and so sweet!

Sitting next to the Frog Prince is a fairy doll made by
Donna... one of the first dolls she ever made after joining Phoebes in 2006. On the right is a flower fairy made in Cyndi Mahlstadt's Phoebe workshop some years ago.

Harlene brought her very cute Nola doll for the Castro Valley Library Exhibit in September. She is a flat doll made with paperclay and decked out in an adorable dress and beads.

Marcella shared her felt Newenbury dolls from her collection.

Von Zetta participated in the May Day Fair in Los Banos and won "Best of Show." She made this doll, as well as a hanging rack to display 5 separate very cute doll costumes.

Several Phoebes participated in a tag exchange with the theme "hands." Here are a few of the tags made by the group.

Sharon, Rosie and Donna got together to make some greeting cards for the Phoebe Sunshine Committee. These are a few of the wonderful cards they made to donate. And, it was a lot of fun! In the upper right is a fairy book created by Sharon that was published in a feature article in Somerset magazine.

A couple more cards that were donated.

Sharon brought some of her beautiful cloth books for us to see. She will be in the Tinsel and Treasures craft show in Danville in the fall. Watch the calendar for the date.
