Felt from the Convergence - Happy Australia Day

For readers in other lands - the 26th of January is Australia Day  - our official national day recognising the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 at Sydney Cove.  It's commemorated with a public holiday and we thought we would celebrate the day with pictures of Australia's national emblem  - the kangaroo.

We are sorry we haven't recorded the name of the felt artist who created these gorgeous guys.  Please send us an email if you know so that we can credit them correctly.

They are glove puppets and they soon escaped from their tables in the felt display and started to entertain us.

They  joined us at our super cool 60's final dinner and were lots of fun.  They soon developed a taste for bubbles.

By the end of the evening they were well out of things but then again so were many of us.

It was a great night and a great Convergence.

But now with our summer holidays ending the Bunbury Felting Group have to get back to work and we will be having our first meeting of the year on Friday 3rd of February at the Stirling Street Arts Centre in Bunbury.  New members are welcome so please come along if you can - 9.30am - 3.00pm.
