Well, home again! I had a wonderful time away in Canberra, teaching members of the Canberra Region Feltmakers - of which I am now a member!!
I think that Canberra has had a great effect on me because I seem to have hit the ground running when very often I am tired for several days afterwards.
My lovely hosts Robyn and Alan had 5 magnificent Alpaccas and for several days I was greatly entertained by Lance - grey, Beethoven - white, Barney- brown, Calleo - black and Collingwood - black and white.
They are very elegant animals in many ways and stand in a rather statuesque position gazing in to the middle distance and I often wondered what they might be thinking or dreaming about.
Lance was such a darling!
Early morning - a cockatoo came to settle in the Lilac bush
Having a cup of tea on the deck at the end of a lovely day
and the sun settling beneath the hill
The classes were great fun and the students were wonderful - working hard for 3 days to create more beautiful felt.Here are some of the results - aren't they stunning!
Setting in beautiful beaded lace
Judy having fun with prefelts. Those not pictured were a little incomplete so with any luck I can convince those ladies to send along a photo before too long.
A new scarf I finished last week with many strips of silk felted in
I don't think I could ever get tired of colour
