Show and Tell in September

 These days much of Win's work can be identified by her signature crochet medallions.  This time the flowers are surrounding small 'windows' of unwoven warp.
Win came in for some good-natured ribbing for bringing a piece of felting to the weaving group. She had a great time learning to make it and here Chris shows it off to good effect.
Jen had been adventurous and used one of the patterns from a workshop to make a scarf in a mix of wool and cotton.  She is musing about daffodils but others were thinking sage and primroses.
Rose had fulfilled a long-held ambition to weave fabric fine enough for a handkerchief.  Here it is, surrounded by tatting, also worked in a fine cotton. Now what to do with it?  And the rest of the fabric . . . more handkerchiefs?  Why?

The red piece is woven with an even finer weft than the white. Unfortunately the reed marks have not washed out in either piece.
