February Fun Day

Exquisite embroidered and beaded  fairy and elf shoes by Jackie - watch for these in Vicki's cabinet in Morpeth in March. 
While quite a few of the Gumnut Dollies members were enjoying the 40th birthday celebrations of Anne's Glory Box at the beautiful Aanuka Resort in Coffs Harbour, some carried on regardless at our February meeting. It was designated a 'broken jewellery' day, but as I didn't stay beyond noon, my report on that is missing, but what a fantastic "show and tell" again.
A myriad of pot mitts by Dolores

Gamarna and her hand dyed fabric ready to create a garment for a "space" themed event. 

Paper clay sculpture by Bobbi and a stitched book by Wilma 

Statuesque sculptures by Bobbi 

Beautiful embroidered dolls in progress by Wendy A. 

Wendy showed us her lovely 'doll" pendant for the jewellery theme. 
We also decided on our next challenge - to be ready for the August birthday meeting.... It will be a colour challenge - more details coming, And Dolores is pursuing the idea of a pin doll swap with another doll group.
