Great weekend Racing, New handbag & Knitting News

It was a great weekend at Gowran Park Race Course. Met some fabulous people,including some lovely American ladies, who were on holiday and having a day at the races on Saturday and bought some goodies to take home with them, it was also a weekend for scarves and shawls and the funny thing was they were all purple based, which surprised me as purple has been slow to move lately, so it was a lovely surprise. Anyway down to this week,  I’ve just finished felting a seascape for one of my upcoming exhibitions, it’s hanging to dry on the line and then over the next few days I’ll do any finishing needed. But after that the mental block has set in. There are two or three things in my head but I think for today I’ll settle for doing a few flowers which don’t take too much brain work, I hope, then some spinning so a chill out day.  Well I didn’t post this yesterday so another day has gone by and I decided to create a Handbag, its been ages since I made one, below is a pic of it still as work in progress, I used a resist, black and grey Merino and embellished with white silk spun threads, I’ll finish it tomorrow. I’ve also had some great news that my very good friend Helena, has taken over Nicola’s old Studio at Duckets Grove in Carlow.  Helena creates the most amazing knit wear for children and her Christening Gowns are a dream, she also designs her own Patterns.  Using the Studio she is going to be holding Knitting Workshops for both Hand & Machine, so if your are local do check her out,  “Kelly Maye Knitwear”, she’s on facebook so please check her out, I’m trying to persuade her to star Blogging.  Also she’s going to be stocking some of my Hand spun pure wool yarn which hopefully will be great for me too.  Heading off now as it’s late, too late and time for bed. Back soon.

About Anita Marnell Fibre Art

I love the feel of fleece, silks and natural fibres which I transform into felt wearables and decorative art.
