We had a good lesson in making greeting cards with Marie Dozois and it was a lot of fun. We also had our Summer picnic at the Dozois home in the garden.Pleasant memories of a sunny day under shady trees come to mind with lots of good people and food.
All of us make our meetings special by sharing and teaching the new and the old.
Betty shared how to paint forget-me -nots.- Maryam showed us to create miniature portraits and we had lessons on light houses.- Helen shared her Hollyleaves and berries.
And there are the seminars.
Jane Kozlak taught us how to paint vegetables in a basket on tile.It was a real challenge with beautiful results.

Cards-Cards-Cards- We got to sell them and buy them .Audrey McCullough is making new ones again and she spends a lot of time to get them out for sale. Remember its for the NYSWOCP.
And we have a new basket that Audrey made from material made in the USA,looking to fill it with our motto in mind. You know what our motto is.
