AUCHMITHIE HAAR 20-21 August

That was a wonderful weekend, sun was shining, and people were out and about.  The atmosphere at Trafalgar house was lovely and relaxed.   Fellow Artists Liz Petrie, Jilly Henderson, Neil Paterson, Karen Elliot, Maralyn Reid-Wood were delightful company.   Thanks to everyone for your generosity.  I also came away from the weekend with a new family member who now eats and sleeps for Scotland and is a right loving fur baby!  I have named him Happy, cos he is!

THE WALL HANGING -DETAILS

This wall hanging is designed to fit a specific space above a stairwell.

Over the next few days I will post some of the detail of the work.

Firstly – here is one of the freeform spirals before being incorporated.  This is worked in two soft yarns of differing weights to give a variation in texture as well as colour.

Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.

A quick look at what I am working on at the moment.  A wall hanging incorporating willow canes, copper wire and a wide  variety of yarns.  I haven’t counted them!
