Another crafty day

Today at our weekly crafty fix, there was a lot going on! How unusual? Ha !!!

People were warping up looms for our hands on display at this weekends Gold Coast Show, make sure you visit the craft pavilion to see our awesome creative entries.

Other members were busy getting sock yarn, balled, hanked or tied up in knots for dying. I was quietly trying to spin when all of a sudden out of the hands of the ladies next to me, their sock yarn was all caught up in my spinning wheel, all tangled in the bobbin and caught in the band. I know I need help with my spinning, but really! It happened not once but twice, what are the odds? The culprits shall remain nameless.

Anyway the sock yarn was dyed in lovely colour gradients, well done. Be careful I may have to sabotage your knitting!

Tree Bombing

We have been knitting and crocheting all year, now all the Mudgeeraba community can enjoy the colourful trees at the Mudgeeraba Village Green

Tree bombed for the D’Arcy Doyle Art Awards, have a look at the great paintings in the hall.

As we were decorating the trees many people stopped and chatted to us and admired our tree bombing, they thought it was a fantastic project. Everyone was smiling and taking photos as they walked thru the park.

Go down there and have a look and visit the D’Arcy Doyle Art Show.
