"Oh yes I know both Janet and Donna and admire their work. The Oakville Guild is great, just a long way to get to. I live in the south east part of Toronto and it is a long trip. I made dolls for quite a while and started a doll club here in Toronto…"
"Almost! I'm in Ajax. I see you're a member of Oakville stitchery, so we would know Donna Funnell and Janet Rhind in common. I'm not currently a member of any guilds, but I belong to a local doll club that meets in Pickering."

I am surprised no one sold anything. I love AMD's little pear piece and your work always sells. I guess some venues are for "lookers" I hope you post your felting journey. I'm sure it will be inspired and inspiring. Off to work on my new gal, Olivia! I think she may give me some attitude! have a great weekend TTFN
I did participate in St. Jacob's. Janet and I hung the show ,Linda helped too. Alot of work. We have sold NOTHING! I am very disappointed, I know Janet sold a few pieces last year but no one is buying now! I was sure AnneMarie would sell her beaded pear piece, it is so sweet. Are you doing the Oshawa show? I am using my Embellish machine doing an online class with Dale Rollerson of the Thread studio in Australia. Lots of work and lots of fun. I need to do some supply work so I can support this habit of fibre art. Talk to you later. Donna
Sooooo, welcome back. No fair teasing me about White Spot and all that yummy sauce. How did you enjoy the Sunshine Coast? Not much production here (although I did drop my piece off at the Textile Museum), but I see that you need to get busy and make some class samples for the fall. Yeah, we should get together soon, but this weekend is not good. I'll call.
Hiya Cheryl, Miss seeing you! Are you doing the Oshawa Show with Martha? I will be and I hope to see you! I have sad news though, our precious dog Oskar died a week ago Monday. I was in complete denial about his health. I just loved him so. I had three days of complete sorrow, it was a terrible feeling. I am much better now and I am busily working on my on line embellish course from Australia with Dale Rollerson. It is a lot of fun! I am lovin my felting machine! Hope all is good with you, lots of love Donna P. S. I have ordered another schnauzer puppy from Oskar's breeder due for delivery in December! He will be called Ollie!
