wonderful weekend...photo overload !


last weekend was really great as per usual. The lovely Faye treated us to lots of delectable feasts, none of which i photographed as i was too busy eating! Faye freezes the leftovers for her TV dinners but much to her consternation we ate BOTH lemon meringue pies, not a skerrick was left :))
Some of us sat up on Saturday night and watched Merry's son Tim compete in the hammer throw in the Commonwealth games. He came 6th, Wtg Tim....
I showed Di how to make felted lilies, hers worked beautifully,
mine i pulled apart:( another failure lol.

poser!!

She made another one the next day using doily as the centre , it semi worked just needed bit more wool to felt it together.

I made no knit scarves, so wonderful to be able to lay out everything without having to pack it all up all the time. i got five made......not terribly prolific, i was sick :(



added some sari silk to this one for Lucy...

Our craft room, the old squash court.

this is some of the girls work....

H's lovely needle felting


V had her music quilt top all cut out friday night and was hand quilting on Sunday...


arent these appliques lovely? h was working from her own photos.... the bungle bungles...the fabric is perfect for those rocks. They will be further worked with free motion stitching.
and a boab tree...i always think they look like upside down trees to me...



the pointy garland are for a quilt Merry is working on ....

H was also working on freestyle crocheting to put onto bag mesh. Now if i could crochet :(

Dis bought this gorgeous red hat and just Had to make scarf to go with it. she added some of my red sari strips to put in it...
