Just a quick post today as I continue preparations for Saturday’s workshops and Sunday’s craft fair at Raheen. Yesterday I made two sweet scarflettes using some of the gorgeous printed silk that I bought recently at Threads of Green in Kilkenny. The print is in a light turquoise and rust so I was debating whether to use turquoise for the wool on both of them or try a totally different colour on one as an experiment. Eventually I decided on turquoise for one and a hot orange for the second. Hopefully the weather will be fine in the morning and I will post the results so you can see the difference, it is astonishing how the same fabric ends up with a totally different look!
My kitchen is beautifully scented this afternoon as I have just finished making 36 bath bags to add scent and colour to my display on Sunday. It was really difficult not to make any more felt but I am totally determined to try and sell a lot of what I have already made and get a bit of space free in the studio and around the house. Carmen is up to ninety getting everything organised and hopefully the Fair will raise loads of funds for the Raheen Family Resouce Centre. Please pop in at any time during the day if you are within striking distance of Wexford and make sure to introduce yourselves to me, it is always a pleasure to meet any of my blog followers!
Hi Nicola, I always doubting with this – sometimes you want a contrast, sometimes it must be flowing with the fabric. Looking forward to your results. Wish I could spent some time in your kitchen and sniffing the bath bags…. hope you will sel a lot xD
