Dec 2017 Show and Tell

This month's meeting and Show and Tell also was our Christmas Potluck Luncheon. It was more than a little chaotic for me with camera issues on top of all the activity. Camera batteries don't like cold weather and they get tempermental so not everything was photographed. As well, many items were already mailed off to the lucky recipients. My thanks to Doreen for her photos of Betty and the use of her camera. The food was fabulous as always!
We have several special big projects that were brought to Show and Tell this month.

When you are over 90 (won't say exactly, lol), you become an honourary member.
Here is Betty and the cushion she made for her daughter.
 

Barb P demonstrated the wide variety in Fibre Arts with these projects.
Yarn with Sparkles are in
her 
rigid heedle table runner.

Barb P used avocado pits for the colour in her
eco-dyed silk scarf and horse harness parts
for the circles

Barb used yarn left by her
Mother for this baby hat,
booties and dble knitted mitts.

Marie used Merino wool for this shawlette 
She used an oz of Cashmere
in her felted scarf



Diane H knit a shawlette (lower left) from her own
 handspun yarn and wove these classic tea towels.

Pat knit this magnificent blanket; I must get more details 
 .
Gail's rugs are loved by her family:
The blue is from cut up garments
with a wool and nylon warp and
the other from Pendleton Mills
blanket ends with an acrylic warp.

This view gives a better idea of the size of Gail's rugs
Jen had fun spinning, playing with different
techniques, hand dyed mohair, silk and merino

Lynn reported using the Crammed Yarn technique but I don't have photos of it. Here are a couple of links I found: Creating texture and
Crammed and Spaced Threads

This 5 colour plain weave tea towel in cotton
boucle by Wendy was woven on her floor

Raelyn knit the fingerless gloves and 3 sizes of children's sweaters.
PJ put on  a 8 yard warp (she says never again) producing
many variations by changing the weft colours.
She use a left over warp piece for sampling treadles (R)
