Summer felt

Once again I have the dilemma of selling wool in the hot heat of summer, so I have branched into the jewelry. The silk is hand dyed and hand spun crocheted stuff and the earrings are stirling silver wire. Some of the crochet was done on my Tunisian crochet hook I bought at Bendigo. They were fun to make and quite a difference working so small. Hope you like!!

No they're not mad really, well no more than I am.
These are the hats from the last hat making workshop for the year.

On Hats and Snails

"Felt United" is an online gallery of felt artists from around the world. This is the second year it has run. I missed it last year because I was too flat chat but I made an effort to get it together this year.
Last year the theme was red, orange, yellow. This year it is blue, green, yellow. The gallery for this year is not yet up but I've decided to give you a sneek peek of my work anyway.

Don't you think all snails should have a winter jacket?
Many thanks to my human model. He brings the hat some dignity I think.

Trying out some ideas for cards.

What a Cracker!!

Check out this little number created by my student yesterday. It is still wet in the photo so the silk does not shine and of course the pins will go but I thought she did a marvelous job!

Road Trip

I recently had a small holiday combined with the opening of the Tamworth exhibition. I drove up by myself so it was a bit Thelma and Louise though I guess I was only Thelma, no convertible and I didn't drive off a cliff at the end.

Glenys Mann was the officiator at the opening and really brought some enthusiasm to the event and the world of textiles generally. I had a good lot of sales which is always a good start. Klimt and Vincent were some of the first to go as well as the eco prints. Some hats went too so here's hoping the rest of the exhibition sells just as well.

I visited some friends from up north and had to share some pics. This one of Kerry with Nickolas. I had such a lovely break with her. Thanks Kerry!

She has quite a menagerie going with miniature horses, the goats, dogs, and chickens.

Aren't those the cutest chicks?
We had a day of felting and some other friends I've met at other workshops came. I'm in deepest love with Doro's bag.

I adore Kerry's clothes line. This shows what a true fibre artist she is. 


I kinda get off on the amazing piece of machinery she has there too. Serious carding material. It is just fascinating to watch.

Nuno workshop

Finally got a cord for my new phone so I can get the pics from the nuno workshop up online.
Another amazing group of women who produced quite diffferent work. Some had come to the dyeing workshop and were able to use what they had made in their piece. Some went with the all over fibre look and some with leaving the gaps. Good Fun!!!

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.
