Anna ginning her home grown cotton. Her Italian husband was excited when she came home with a pasta maker, thought he was going to be getting home made pasta – wrong!!
Great to see Shirley here for the winter!
Some very busy members, Janny and others made mandalas for the yarn bombing.
Today we had lots of fun yarn bombing a bike. Thanks to all the members who helped out, the bike looks groovy, funky, baby. The bike will be on display at the D’Arcy Doyle Art Awards in the Mudgeeraba Memorial Hall from June 27. Our group also yarn bombs the trees in the near by Village Green. Jacquie and Anna have created some colourful crochet bollard toppers. See you among the riot of colour in Mudgeeraba at the end of June.
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!
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.
The Mudgeeraba Show was a great success for our group with an outstanding 125 entries in the Spinning, Weaving and Felting section. Lots of our members are grinning with pride after being awarded prizes. Well done to everyone that entered. The overall champion is Pam Everitt, congratulations. Feast your eyes on the gorgeous handmade crafts.
Recently our group attend the annual Mudgeeraba Street Party. A great community event , where our members displayed crafts they had made, and got the community involved in weaving, spinning knitting and crochet. Lots of fun and great entertainment.
Today the Village Green at Mudgeeraba is a brighter and more cheerful park. We Yarn Bombed it. The trees the woodchopper statue, the stage and a few poles in front of the Memorial hall. So come down to Mudgeeraba and have a look. It is all for the d’Arcy Doyle Art Awards in the Mudgeeraba Memorial Hall, open now until the 10 July.
What fun we had, everyone was curious to what was happening and all the passing motorists gave friendly toots.
