Lampworking....oh my!

I spent a truly wonderful day on Friday on
a lampworking course in West Kilbride
( I have linked to her flickr pics)

I cannot express the wonder of molten glass
it was quite spellbinding.
My efforts were indeed somewhat wobbly but I just had so much fun!

Below their handy work yesterday.

More dying.....and new packs.

This week has been busy ...busy
Lots of dying!
Creating new packs!

Next week is October break here so there won't be much work
getting done. We will be at home though and Reuben is off work.
so hopefully some days out and decent weather
(keeping those fingers crossed).

But the last few days Rita, Vicky and I have been working on 
new Harris Tweed packs - so lovely!
I have hand dyed the Harris Tweed, and so far we have created
Needle felting packs and Creative textiles packs.

Lovely hand spun yarns by Rita and knitted flowers by Vicky
and dying well that would be my domain!
