I just spent three days surrounded by fibres and threads of many kinds. There was knitting- of both kinds- and crochet:
a touch of needlework:
and heaps of sewing of garments, quilts and more:
The sewing was particularly inspiring for me as I haven’t been in front of a sewing machine in a long time. I’ve never taken the time to learn how to do things the right way- basically, I’m a lazy sewer- and, as result, am often disappointed with my results, so the knowledge, talent, experience and enthusiasm swirling around me in the room was intoxicating! Listening, observing and asking advice reminded me how valuable times like this weekend away are and how the connections we make can enable so much sharing- and I feel incredibly lucky to have been included of such an amazing bunch of women.
Photos of completed projects to follow shortly- I now have a box of half-finished sewing projects to add to my basket of knitted ones!
