Hello Dollies : Christmas in July
28 July 2012 - Dreaming of a White Christmas? No it wasn't white, but it was a wintry day at Hello Dollies to celebrate our Christmas in July. In the spirit of the 'white theme" we had a white or Christmas "show and tell" and swapped Christmas gifts with a "white" theme. Here are some happy scenes from the "white Christmas in July" meeting.
After morning tea (special US-style pumpkin pies and apple pies cooked by Bobbi, Christmas turkey and cranberry sandwiches - Jim's contribution - and my sad Santa strawberries , which had an accident in transit), we each made a fabric Christmas bird decoration - using various textile colouring methods : Inktense pencils, pastels, markers, crayons and paint.
And the shoes were distributed for the "Whose Shoes ? " Doll Challenge - due in December.If you missed out, don't despair- there were a few pairs left and it's not too late to join the challenge. Just contact me.
Hope to see you at the August meeting - 25 August when Gloria will be talking about some of her special dolls from her collection.
Thanks for your patience last Saturday as I was still learning the "ropes" - yes we all miss Fay.
PS the crocheted and knitted blanket in the photo above was made by two of our Dollies members and their friends for "Wraps with Love" - well done.
