Summer's coming!!!

So we are looking forward to spring here and I have been putting on the thinking cap for summer sales. Our Australian summers are so hot it is difficult to get people looking at wool but they will look at the silk.
I have eco printed these fabrics and sewn up some summer splendor!

 This was sewn from a bought pattern and I've added the obi sash as an alternative look.

The second was a made up pattern using a small part of the "subtraction cutting" idea. As you can see I'm not sure yet which way I want those ties/extra bits to work.

Bag and bag

These are a couple of bags I made as examples for the bag making workshop. There was another but it has gone to the Leura shop. I wanted to show 3 different ways to do handles. 1. has a handle included in the form, 2. has the handle included in the resist which must be detachable and the last (not present) had handles that you add on later.
The wooly one was made from some Border Leicester fleece I bought at the Bendigo Wool show. More than a little influenced by the lovely Elis

Think Big

I thought the knitting needles we [wooldancer and I] used at the Sydney design workshop last weekend with Nikki Gabriel were big.

Clearly I have no idea about these things and was getting carried away because only today I came across this piece of footage
