Carol Ann entered several of her creations in the Markham Fair.

Her woven bag with plastic bag weft won first place
as did her bookmark.
In the felted category, her needle felted gnome won second place.

Carol Ann's tea towels won 4th and 2nd place respectively.

Jo brought in the apron she made when she was 9.
Geri passed around a knitted chemo cap.
She also showed off her framed 'Cinnamon Stars' cross-stitch piece. It was stitched with hand-dyed threads - one strand over two stitches on 36 count fabric (18 sts per inch) and embellished with a pumpkin button.

Dini then lead a workshop where we made a macramé wreath ornament.
It involved tying spiraling knots on a small metal ring. Then it was embellished with some mistletoe greenery, red berries, and some glued on a wee pine cone.
Gini showed off her completed wreath ornament.

Our next meeting is our Christmas potluck which will be held at our meeting place in Greenwood.
