A very long time ago my lovely daughter in law asked me to make cushions from her wedding frock - what else can you do with a frock no one wants to buy. I procrastinated for a long time because it was just too pretty to cut up but have finally made a start with three cushions, using the beadwork from the frock and using a grey thread to machine embroider to break up the white.
I've been spending the evenings spinning after waffling through the days not being able to focus on anything and spending a lot of time just sitting. This is how I spend my springs due to pollen allergies and lack of sleep due to heat and humidity. Thank goodness I'm coming out of it with the start of summer.
I have been weaving but no pictures yet. I've made a piece to put into the Waihi Summer Festival Exhibition in January. I've started weaving a pale pink cotton scarf in bead leno on the table loom which, if it works out OK, it can be used to raise funds for breast cancer at the Waihi Garden Ramble in January and I've just tied a cherry red warp on the dobby loom for more blankets. No rest for the wicked.
