The month of June quickly became July; and with this month came show days, craft days and new groups.
Market Bosworth was the first show. I wasn't exhibiting. Unfortunately non of my photos turned out; but suffice to say that it was a lovely day. The weather was perfect, with a lovely summer breeze keeping us cool in the very warm sunshine.
I had been experiencing a real urge to create a large piece of felting. This wall hanging combines both wet and needle techniques.; and measures about the size of a standard pillow case. Sold at the show.
My stall was situated in the craft marquee; opposite a group of ladies known as the Sheepwash Spinners. They put on a fabulous display (as pics below show, thanks to Maureen for a couple of these) of hand dyed / spun yarns plus a wealth of goodies, enough to make one's mouth water !
I felt very proud when one of these ladies purchased my sheep wall hanging.
I also secured a commission on a second piece, on a similar vein. Work is in progress !
You can find out more about them and the Derbyshire Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers here
For those of you who don't know me ...I 'don't do' early mornings, so getting up very early, plus the excitement of the day took its' toll !! however I had recovered enough by the Tuesday to get back into the designing and making again ready for the shows booked in August.
