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.
Lee has created a mat by weaving together her hand-spun and dyed wool. The mat was woven on a stick weaving loom and then stitched together. The hand woven wool was dyed various colours using black beans, onion peels, turmeric, avocados and flowers. The result is a very thick, unique and rustic mat.
Laura decided to do some weaving with her handspun wool, some of which is hand dyed also. Laura plans to make a wall hanging so that she can showcase her work so far.
Lyn has woven this beautiful garment, modelled by Katie, on her loom. It is a sleeveless jacket and scarf all in one. Great to wear over any outfit as the weather gets cooler.
Bettina is warping up her Sampleit loom in preparation to make a garment. Bettina loves her little loom and gets so much done on it. This time a jacket. The mess in the background is getting ready for our felting workshop. By Lyn A.
Lyn brought her Piccolo Loom into the cottage one Wednesday night. Here is Lisa in love with it and weaving up her magic. By Lyn A.
Some lovely photos here of Jenni’s knitted and woven accessories. I love the brightly coloured knits.
Sandra’s latest weaving. She got the idea for this piece from a picture in a magazine. Beautiful weaving by Sandra.
Lyn brought in a long handwoven piece of twill fabric to show us how she avoids creases. Instead of folding her lovely weaving, Lyn rolls it onto a sturdy cardboard cylinder and voila! No more creases.
Gaye started this garment with a pattern which she found in a book but ended the garment via her own inspiration.
