a productive summer

September 20, 2019

guild meetings begin again in September

we started with a challenge to create work in Autumn colours –  emphasizing natural dyes

the church basement where we meet has florescent lighting which makes it very difficult to get good colour photos

these colours are fairly close to natural

Laura Proctor was busy this summer – handspun 2 ply silk, all natural dyes

a collection of my natural dyed skeins from this Summer and earlier

handspun wool, silk and blends

on the right is a nuno felted shawl, in beautiful warm colours

sorry I didn’t get the name (if anyone knows please e-mail me)

Christine Purses’ hand knit sweater

the twisted edging down the front opening is interestingknitted shawl by Glenda Sedgwick

I loved the gradation of colours and the lace edging

and then moving into blues and greens

these may be part of the show and tell and not the challenge – I got too busy here and didn’t pay attention!

the winner of the challenge – by member vote

a wonderful, colourful shawl by Florence Coleridge

she has only been weaving for a few years so winning was a happy surprise

no surprise to me! she is a perfectionist – and one of my weaving students

show and tell featured member’s items submitted to the Saanich Fall Fair

the theme of the fair was bees so there were a few hovering around

hanging onto a flower

and a swarm around the honny pot

bee buttons on Glenda’s socks

and two cute bunnies munching on their carrots

knitted by Kathy Ready – another of my weaving students

a fun night enjoyed by members and critters alike
