Exchange, and Show and Tell

The exchange at this meeting was an ornament. Five people participated and below are some of the ornaments, along with photos of wonderful original creations members have recently made.

For the exchange, Elizabeth received this beautiful mosaic
ornament from Suzanne. 

This is the very cute polymer mushroom that Elizabeth created.

Sue created this polymer Hawaiian Santa in a sea shell.

Daisy forgot to bring her Noel Troll to the meeting, so she drew a picture for Suzanne to keep until the next meeting.

This adorable owl was made by Harlene.

Several Phoebes brought dolls they had recently completed. The silver one above was made by Marcella.

This is Bonnie's tea pot doll. 

And Daisy displayed her two dogs fishing in a boat.

Marcella attended the Meditation Bead Workshop recently and used beautiful examples from her bead collection to make this stunning necklace.

Betts shared with us some beautiful vintage fabrics from her stash... many purchased in Europe.
