No club meeting in August. We will be having a committee meeting to talk over a few things. I'm doing some planning for our next year which runs from September to July, booking speakers and that sort of thing. I've remembered to write the letter booking the hall - now I just need to post it! I've decided on the challenge for next year and will announce it at the AGM in September. If anyone has any suggestions for speakers, or something they would particularly like us to cover, now is the time to let us know. It is definitely too hot today to knit, but I'm sure as soon as the weather cools a bit I will be back at the machine. I have been doing a bit of hand knitting, trying the multidirectional techniques. Now maybe they would be transferrable to the machine ...... just a thought. I've got to try it soon because I need to know!

Here's one naughty boy who missed the party, wonder what he was doing. Dressed by Kathy, he is wearing a knitted hat and striped jumper, sewn denim jeans and boots made from black felt with funky foam soles. He is carrying a very large Swag bag overflowing with crocheted gold and silver jewellery and of course, a torch! Don't forget his black felt mask, just so you won't recognise him! Maybe he will visit in September.
Meet Tabitha, Tallulah's little sister, who's keeping a close eye on her as she gets ready for her night out! She is trying to copy her big sister, so has her own caribou/boas stole and posh shoes. She has a flower hat and a lilac gathered skirt. Another of Liz's creations!
This is Liz's creation, wearing a white knitted dress trimmed with crochet and ribbon and with a lilac net underskirt. All dressed up for a night on the town. Her shoes and tiara are free standing lace worked on an embroidery machine, as is the star on the end of her wand. She also has ear rings and a necklace and a caribou/boa stole for when it gets chilly. As she is such a modern miss, she is also wearing a thong! And whilst she is getting ready for her night out she is having a glass of something to get her in the right mood! Look carefully and you can see the glass in her hand!
You may recognise Fiona's Bunny made when we did felting. She now has a change of clothing. She can dress up as a fairy in her knitted lace dress with net underskirt. Pinned to the front of the dress is a beaded flower corsage and she has a beaded bag on her arm. Her crown is knitted in wire and beads and her net wings are decorated with glitter fabric glue.
Another fun meeting, and the members rose well to Liz's challenge with a lovely collection of fully dressed bears! Wonder what her challenge will be for next year?
Here is a group photo of the bears in all their glory. I will upload individual pictures of each bear later, with details of their clothes.
