The following pictures are of items created from our Tuesday group of ladies. The scarf by Faye was hand spun and woven using Merino and Cashmere wool. It will be a Christmas present for her lucky family in America.
The kookaburra was crocheted by Margaret. It will be taken to a little boy in Scandinavia along with a book called Fabulous Aussie Fables. The book was written and illustrated by another of our members named Julie.
Our talented crocheters have been hard at work creating new and exciting projects. Well done to Debbie and Margaret. Scraps of yarn can always be turned into a work of art.
Lyn Hilton from our neighbours, The Potter’s Society, has made some lovely pottery wool bowls for all our knitters and crocheters. It stops your ball from rolling all over the place. Won’t stop your cat from attacking it though. We love Lyn’s beautiful bowls.
I was in Christchurch, New Zealand recently and in the art gallery they had a large, bright yellow crocheted piece hanging on the wall. There were bench seats and a low table nearby with a lovely view of the hanging. Yellow wool and crochet hooks aplenty were available for anyone with the ability and desire to make a piece to be added on. What a brilliant idea. Here’s my little offering. Naomi.
I love Debbie’s amazing crocheted rag rug. She made it using old sheets torn into strips using a size 25 crochet hook. It is so heavy that it is difficult for one person to lift it!
Wow! Deb has really outdone herself this time with her stunning mandala rug. I’d be too scared to walk on it after all that work. It is truly spectacular.
Our new member, Maggie, loves to crochet. Here are some of her bags which she lines too to give them strength and keep their shape. They are all beautifully decorated.
Helen loves to crochet rugs for Wraps With Love. Here is her latest.
Katie makes some beautiful crocheted wraps, and this one is no exception. I just love the green and the sheen of this stunning merino and silk wrap.
Lyn has strung together some crocheted and knitted bits and pieces to be used as decorations when we have open days and such. The pinks, purples and apricots look so lovely together.
