well we thought we’d give the girls a rest this year. Although we do eat our own stock the primary reason we keep a few sheep is for their lovely fleeces oh and as lawn mowers otherwise the valley would return to scrub land. One of the boys last year matured rather early we think, this wee one is so cute, a little girl, always a relief.
So, with all that yarn, some free weaving on my Ashford knitter and the results drying on the line.
Soon to be for sale on Esty…when i work out how to!! Don’t think i will put them in the caravans. By the way Ruby is ready for hire, just awaiting her gorgeous stripy awning to arrive, more photos soon. Check out http://www.devonvalleyglamping.co.uk
bluebell wood inspired weavings made into cushions
Three cushions made with Devon Wildlife Trust Halsdon bluebell wood weavings. This was so much fun, I have backed them with some fantasic blue fabric. Nicola Wood produced several designs for Heals in the early to mid 1960’s. Her work is rather distinctive, all the pieces I have come across have a very painterly, abstract, expressionist quality. ‘Vibration’ is typical of this style. The fabric is 100% cotton barkcloth, very typical of the period.
