My wonderful time at The Tin Thimble has come to an end and I am now sitting at the boarding gate waiting to catch the red eye to Grand Rapids via Minneapolis! The last week with Sharon, Emma, Mark, Lisa and Claire has been fantastic, really a lot like returning home only WETTER and WINDIER this time believe it or not!!! All the participants at both the workshops felted beautiful creations, bags, scarves, shaggy neck pieces, nuno mosaic wraps, wall hangings and yardage for clothing. I did get to take some photos between helping everyone so hopefully I will get to share some if these when I have a chance to blog from Dawn’s. My bags are full of wonderful hand dyed Colonial wool (The softest variety of Corridale I believe), firestar, silk fabric, silk hankies, vintage linen and a lovely little uocycled vinyl billfold, all fab products I just couldn’t resist from Emma and Sharon’s wonderful selection! I’m not sure who is more excited that I am finally on the journey to MI but sometime within the next ten hours I will be thrilled to be greeted at GR by Dawn!
We’re very much looking forward to seeing the photos and we’re a bit envious of the contents of your bags – it reads like a Christmas wish list – colonial wool, firestar, silk …….
Good morning Nicola,
And, a scary looking Dawn shall be greeting you as you arrive…I am so excited that I couldn’t sleep a wink last night. Might be an early bedtime for both of us tonight;-)
Can’t wait to hear all about your past week’s adventure…Sounds fantastic!!!!
Well, the coffee is beeping so perhaps I can shake a little of this sleepy feeling off and get on with the day….Hooray!!!!
See you soon.
Welcome back to Michigan! Can’t wait to see you and all of your wonderful wares!
