Last Weaving Day 2014

At least it was the last day for the group. And a lovely day too. So great to see how happy and enthusiastic everyone is with weaving. We all enjoy meeting together even if the only thing that gets done is a cup of tea. 
Elaine brought the doll she is making for her sister. 

So spectacular in red and black. 

Lyann has got her black alpaca homespun korowai started and is doing her taniko on the bottom. 

The alpaca doesn't have the stretch of wool so hopefully will make an interesting and stable cloak. 
I have started a couple of rows in another of the peahens feather types to finish off. After a bit if discussion with the other girls I think I will do three rows of the round tips then one of blue-green, then a row of mawhitiwhiti each side of the taniko. 
After some discussion with the Otago Museum I will finish this for them as a cloak to wear on official occasions. 

Next year I think I will concentrate on tags and taniko rather than feathers although I have heaps of feathers to deal with. Its time to dispose with a good deal of my stash.
