Birds Playday

Another busy weekend for the Halifax Embroiderers' Guild with two new members, a brilliant talk from Harriet Lawton, and a Playday at the Maurice Jagger Centre with the theme of BIRDS. 
Several members worked from a pattern featured in Stitch Magazine last year in an article by Maggie Smith, others did their own thing. 
There was even cake. (Actually, there is always cake.)

As you can see below, all of the results were, as usual, fabulous. 

Davina's black and white birdy

Wyn and Irenes' birdy brooches

Anne's bird, "Barbara"

Barbara's beautiful bottom

Rona's parliament of owls - and a dove

Helen's work on a Thieving Magpie theme - and a dove

Myra's ruby red Robin

Janice's splendid..um..Greenfinch?

Cath's beautiful Bluebird

Liz's bird - looks kind of Native American!

Next month there is a workshop, tutored by the talented Judy Tadman - book your places with Margaret Walton now! (I promise there'll be cake!)
