What a Hoot!

Well we had our second Brown Owls meeting last night and had some new members come which was great to see. Welcome to our new members.

Everyone was busy beavering away - grabbing that chance to be able to sit down for a couple of hours without interruptions and create something unique and beautiful.  Bliss.  It was great to be able to have a chat, a cuppa, and sew - this is mulitskilling at its best!

I managed to sew all of the Brown Owl flags that were created at last our last meeting and during the holidays.  They look great together and our first activity as a collaborative piece was a nice way to start things off.  As you can see there is great diversity in the works which is what we were hoping for.
This week we set a new activity which was making a Brown Owl badge.  I took along some lino printed owls and Caree brought along her inspiring mountain of materials.   

Here's Gaye with her fancy Owl.  Isn't she clever. 

And here are some other badges - some owlish others just pretty.

At our next meeting I'll be doing a lino printing demo and everyone will get the chance to try it as well. 
So why not come along and doing something creative?

Our next meeting is on the 26th October, Nords Wharf Hall, 7-9pm.

All we ask you to bring is a gold coin
donation to cover the cost of hall hire.
