There was an abundance of beautiful work on show from our productive members at our May meeting.
First up was Pauline with an explanation and great examples of Faux leather. This fitted in beautifully with our theme of recycling for our May postcards with the possible re-use of all those brown paper bags.
Our other topic for discussion was felting. This arose from the tendency for people to gift me their accidently felted woollens for recycling. There were some lovely examples of needle felting and wet felting.

Now onto the finished and in-progress pieces on display.
Firstly the April postcards where the theme was ‘Dancing the night away’ and ‘bling, bling, bling’.
We had some icons appearing for March:
We had book pages and covers from Jill:
We even had a finished May postcard using recycled materials:
Many of our members were inspired after the Velma Bolyard workshop and went home to spin paper and make more shifu:
Wow, you are a talented bunch.
Next meeting is June with our 15 minutes of fame spot with Robyn and a theme of ‘Out of Africa’- sure to bring out the wild side!
