Textile Fair Purchases and Weird Weather
We had a weird thunder storm this afternoon and the hail rained down on us. It looked like snow in the midst of the storm!!
Our tank is overflowing after the downpour. (Photos taken through the fly screen )
Last week I received a lovely card in the mail. It was so nice to get something in the letterbox other than a bill.
This is the amazing card I received from Suz from “Suztats”. Thanks Suz. The technique Suz used was really interesting and she is still experimenting with others. You can check it all out on her blog. Of course, she also does amazing tatting too.
Now the purchases from the textile fair Shirley and I went to in Brisbane on Saturday. Shirley was very good in keeping me under control and stopping me from spending too much
I bought the beautiful piece of hand dyed cotton sateen from Lisa Walton at Dyed and Gone to Heaven. Also, some hand dyed scrim/gauze, a bundle of recycled silk yarn, a jar of lumiere gold just because, and Prudence Mapstone’s freeforming with yarn booklet and the latest Downunder Textile mag.
Shirley and I both bought some of the glorious wool for some serious and easy wool felting which we saw Jacinta of The Thread Studio demonstrating. Check out Shirley’s blog and the colours she bought. We are sharing these and hope to have a wet felting day real soon. We are itching to do it!!
