Felt Teddy Bear with Marilyn

Many thanks to Marilyn Halcomb and Fay Bowen who travelled from Sydney for the September Newcastle Hello Dollies meeting last Saturday. Marilyn showed us how to needle felt a little teddy bear . It was great fun, and we all finished the day with most of the teddy bear parts felted in various colours and sizes, but all looking fantastic.  If only I had taken a video of the action!

We had as usual a wonderful show and tell, including  beautiful items from the recent Maitland  Embroiderers' Guild Exhibition , Fay's absolutely  exquisite wedding accessories,  professional photo books, crazy patchwork , stunning dolls and even toadskin leather. Congratulations to all .

Best wishes to Bobbi who is not feeling well and to Connie who spent the weekend at the Sydney Eye Hospital having on operation on a torn retina. We all missed you on Saturday and wish you both a speedy recovery so you can return to your creative pursuits soon.
