Christmas Show and Tell Items

Melissa has been needle felting, I think that she called this creation "Buster Bear". 

Ann showing off one of the salmon.  Fish are fashioned out of handwoven fabrics made by guild members then stitched and stuffed.

Lynette and Ngaire showing off stockings that they created to use up some odds and ends from their statshes! 

Gudrun's family Christmas stockings made using a boundweave technique.  They even have decorative borders with the names of each family member - sorry that I didn't get a better shot, but she waves her arms alot!

Now who wouldn't want to take this little gal home - another of Melissa's creations.

This gorgeous scarf was produced by a woman whose name
I did not get (please email me so I can include it!).  She said it was her first attempt at "nuno felting" and is justly proud of her results.

Katherine is standing beside the shawl that Gudrun took off the guild loom after several aborted attempts to get the treadles working correctly.  In frustration, she brought it home, threaded it on her own loom and is showing us the end result!  The shawls will be lovely!
