It was really sunny but quite cold today. We had to talk a lot to keep warm!
Marjorie : The dyed wool plait she had got in Nimbin in vibrant pinks, blues, greens, and yellows. You need sunglasses to look at it. She also shared that some of our things were as good as if not better than the things she had seen at the exhibition at eh Nimbin gallery especially Sheila’s felted slippers . She noted their felted slippers had a rubber solution on the bottom for better grip but that that solution was expensive.
Alexis: Stunning and stylish red poppy hat in reds and black. Photo does not do it justice. She is debating whether to put beads in for the centre of the poppy. We thought that to be a good idea. Oranges and lemons. Books and booklets of patterns for us to share.
Hilary: A brown pair of alpaca fingerless mittens with little cream alpacas and a pair of mustardy coloured fingerless mittens with cute little creatures with beady eyes.
Beth: The sashiko pieces she had made at the workshop at the weekend and some things to look at if we wanted to find out more about it. She said it was well worth learning and was very excited to be able to use those sewing techniques now.
