Member Birthdays
Happy Quarantine Birthday to Katie, Sandy, and Ann R.  Hope you can all celebrate when quarantine is over!

March Meeting Minutes
Unfortunately there was no meeting  in March, but there is a bit of Show and Tell via emails and texts.

Show and Tell
Kathryn has been continuing to plan for her Triplett class that has been postponed to September 19-20.  Christine Shively was scheduled then but has graciously changed her class to Spring 2021.  No specific dates yet.

Leslie has been organizing her junk room, so we know when she gets that done she will be busy creating!

Vicki has been flitting from project to project and has made some COVID masks.

Martha has been busy knitting some beautiful socks and doing some fabulous coloring in her coloring books.  She has been working on masks as well but ran out of elastic.

Virginia shared her Belle of Provence made from Barbara Schoenoff's pattern.  She's beautiful, Virginia!  Looks like some intentional mending on her skirt!

Barbara has also been flitting from project to project and working on an extensive wardrobe for Luna Lapin.

Julie W. has made masks and started on a couple of small dolls.  That has all been put on hold until her new puppy gets past being so demanding!

Jude has worked on a variety of things:  a Christmas Tilda, memory pillows, an embroidered patch with Taylor's logo, and some embroidered tea towels for customers.

Sue completed Daffodil and Carrot made from a pattern by Brenda Sanker from Sanker Studio.  Look closely at the eyes.  They say it all!  Sue has several WIP (imagine that!) and has been jumping from one to another.

Andrea has a doll in progress.  She only sent a picture of it from the waist down. What a tease!  She said there's a lot of handmade trims including lots of
tatted lace. This picture is larger so you can see the intricate tatting she has done.  We just have to wait to see the rest.

Next Meeting
Who knows when it will be????  Hopefully May 16 with a field trip to the Eiteljorg Museum.  Time will tell and we will keep members posted when it gets nearer May 16.    In the mean time everyone stay safe and well!
