Rugs and slippers, but no pipe ....

Jessie's Needle has been busy but has found time to:-

Start a proddy rug.

This was started after a visit to The Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry in Kendal where I met a lady who was demonstrating this craft and allowed me to give it a try. Brilliant museum, well worth a visit.

I have also started to make a pair of Ffaerie Slippers.

I'm a member of Appleby Textile Group, we meet once a month. This month we welcomed Lucinda Allwood who gave us a talk about gold work. At the workshop the next day I made one slipper and have enough supplies to make the other one.

Just have to find time to make the other one.
