Hunter Gatheress tribe

These are two pieces I have been working on using some of the ideas from the Julian Roberts workshop. Working in felt is a completely different kettle of fish to plain fabric. There is the shrinkage to deal with, the drape is completely different and really it is a completely different beast altogether. The advantage though is that I can add on my offcuts to increase the length and it will look like one piece of fabric, no seams.
Can you believe this gorgeous setting is my friend's back yard!!!.  She happened to have a couple of stunning models just lying around for me too!! 
The head warmer is a corespun crocheted on my finger because I couldn't find the right sized knitting needles. There is always a way.

All in a tailspin

Can there be too many tails in a tailspin yarn? I dyed some locks for an order and it was not the right colour, too bright so I thought I should try to tailspin them. I think I got a bit carried away but they are kinda cool.

I'm a comin

So in June/July this year I will be off to visit some fantastic people I've met on this wonderful thing called the internet. I have put some contact details to the right for the countries I will be in but if there is none contact me on my email and I will put you in touch. The co-ordinators will fill you in on the details.I will be pretty much doing a different thing in each venue so why not do all of them???? HA!
Sorry UK it fell through this time but next time I will make sure we leave enough time to organise everything.

I am adding some shots of some handspun Yarns I did with Pluckyfluff last weekend. She is an inspirational teacher who took us along to produce some fantastic yarns.

Alien pod

This pod shape has bee calling to me for a while. I like the positive and negative spaces in the holes. My dear nearly 18 yr old helped me photoshop as the background was a bit dodgy. I quite like it now.
