And more works ...

Here's Carol's latest piece of weaving - a luscious scarf. It's hard to see from the photo but it has a beautiful subtle pattern from the colours of yarn she's used. Gorgeous!
She's still going on her knitted Doctor Who scarf as well.
Helen has finished her little Memory Blanket, her personal version of the Traveller's Blanket. This has been a work in progress for some time but I don't think we've shown it here.
It has many small pieces of fabric that are significant to Helen. She plans to make it into a book cover.

Jan has been continuing to work on this embroidery, which you saw here a while back...

... while Maz was working on this embroidered rock paperweight, inspired by Helen's work. Helen is the group's go-to person for anything relating to embroidery!

Meanwhile, Nola was beginning a new knitting project.

It's going to be a jacket called Metro from the book Swing Swagger Drape by Jane Slicer-Smith. You can see images of the coat here. The yarn is a variegated wool called Murano from Bendigo Woollen Mills. The jacket is knitted with intarsia, so each section has a different ball of yarn.

Yvonne has been away collaborating on a community tapestry called 
'My Place', involving year 5 & 6 students from Jervis Bay School, members of the public, Denise Stevens and herself. This project was part of Synergy, the collaborative artworks section of the "See Change" Jervis Bay & Basin Arts Inc. Winter Arts Festival. You can see more about this project on Yvonne's blog.

We meet again towards the end of the month, with more postcards to swap and more work to show you!
