Cairnorrie & Ardallie WRI round-ups

President Mrs Janice Stephen welcomed members to Cairnorrie WRI.

After all business had been discussed Janice welcomed guest speaker - Marg Wards - a very artistic lady.

One of her many talents is wet felting and she demonstrated to the group how she does it.

She creates pictures from teasing out many different wools and placing them on her canvas forming the layout for her picture. It is finished by totally wetting the wool and rolling it several times. The end result creates some beautiful pictures.

After tea and raffles, Sandra gave the vote of thanks and Janice wished everyone a safe journey home.

Competition winners: Two pancakes: 1. Isabella Buchan 2. Doris Thomson 3. Ethel Stanger.

A fancy teaspoon: 1. Pat Mennie 2. Isabella Buchan 3. Janice Stephen.
