July Meeting at Win's, Part 2

Win was showing and telling but I had my eye on her magnificent felt beads!
Like the albatross and penguins on her wall.
This was Win's tapestry just off the loom. Birds and shorelines are among her favourite subjects.
These are the colours she dyed in the microwave oven, ready for her next work which will be similar to . . .
Jenny's interpretation of a group challenge. Well done Jenny. I'm sorry if the photo is upside down or sideways!
New member Jen has been learning to weave under June's tuition. She's wearing her first scarf. Lovely colours Jen.
And this is her first bag. Sorry it's not a good photo - too much sunshine!

July Meeting at Win's, Part 1

We enjoyed Win's hospitality on a lovely sunny day. Pumpkin soup and homemade bread added to the general well-being. Thank you Win. We welcome two new members, Jen and Cathie.
Tricia tucks under the ends of Joan's just-finished floor rug; another reincarnation of the curtains.
Is this how much weaving Chris does each day? Or is she talking fishing?
One of Rose's scarves. Who knows what the fibre is? Who cares!
Three scarves from the same warp. Three different wefts.
Joan and Win inspect an ikat scarf from the Philippines.
And we are all intrigued with the way the fringes are tied.
