Slow Start

It has indeed been a slow start for our Nelson group gatherings this year but we did get ourselves together on Sunday (April 10) with a wonderful day at Judy's.  

Judy had the fire pit ready with pots that had been simmering for a couple of days 

so we set to work making full use of the various plants materials we had brought along or Judy had so generously supplied

Susan was busy with her pieces of pre-loved blankets

Judy was doing lots of things (as usual) but here she is working out an addition for her eco dyed cardigan (op shop find of course - good recyclers that we are)

 Sharron came well prepared with her pieces pre-bundled and ready for the copper pot

 Chris was having a knitting day - much easier to carry on her motor bike

 the pots filled up with all sorts of wonderous things

Fliss and Helen called in for a cuppa and catch up

After much eating, laughing, sharing tips and ideas and catching up with our latest doings
we all went home very happy bunnies indeed

oh and you can see what I did here


  1. this looks so wonderful! my goal this spring and summer is to play around more with the eco dying... i am so excited!

  2. hmm choisya ternata i see...
    wish i'd been there, but on the other hand i was having a splendid time driving across the Hay Plain
    not so bad either

  3. wonderful to see you all gathered around the Firecircle again. love to you all x Gin
