ROUND, LIKE A CIRCLE IN A SPIRAL,
LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL..........
Hello, lovely WOYWWers - I hope you're having a good week. Hasn't it zoomed by? I have hardly done any crafting at all, I'm afraid, so the desk is pitiful.....
I've got as far as pulling out some scraps from my fat quarters box as I'll be making some bunting for a new granddaughter of friends in band....but haven't actually done anything with them! You can see a new purchase - that lovely denimy blue spot was bought in Fabricland last week...it's a great all-rounder, perfect for lining bags :-) And the white spool on top of it is a 25 metre long reel of white bias binding, which I use as bunting tape. Sally bought for me as a thank you for the little bag I made her!
And that, as they say, is that! I've had other, more pressing, things to do.... a trip down to Wales to see my dad, compiling the newsletter for the brass band I'm in....oh and playing all day on Sunday.
Here's the band, arranged on a lorry trailer! We're playing Moon River featuring a beautiful Flugelhorn solo by Chloe. I'm just off the right hand edge at the moment, lol! That lorry cover saved us from the worst of the elements cos it chucked it down on and off throughout the day. But the band played on......grin!
Ah, there I am! Parping my bass. And yes, I AM full of hot air ;-)
I love the Lambourn Spring Working - the show we were at. It's not a posh day at all, more down to earth than some of the events we play at. There were lots of animals on show but it was a little corner in the chicken tent that caught my eye.....
I think the craft group had been shoved in there to get out of the elements! There were some beautiful spinning wheels.....
These lovely ladies tried hard to get me to join their group...but I had to explain that my life is pretty full already. I simply can't take on anything else! They were a fun bunch though :-)
This lady was spinning with tufts of coloured rovings to make a variegated yarn - that was clever!!
This loom had been set up for anyone to have a try. Can you see that there are different woven patterns - all by changing the elements. The lady did explain but I can't remember it all now!
And this gentleman was just setting up what looked like a ginormous French Knittting reel, but I had to return to play before I could ask him...drat....and I never got to go back. It'll have to remain a mystery :-)
So, I have shown you some crafting...just not necessarily mine ;-) LOL
