Well, it’s a while since we have all met and what a better way to get back into things with a bit of winding of embroidery threads?
We have been very lucky to have some silk embroidery threads donated to us - by the hank load. So, today we decided that it might be a good idea to wind it into smaller amounts to make it more manageable.
Clare (the engineer) took a structured approach to cutting the threads that were holding together the hank and hey presto her and Jackie were on a mission winding the green stuff into wonderful little skeins!
Deedi has obviously decided to keep out of the things to quietly get on with knitting her Teddy. HOW LONG have you been knitting that Teddy Deedi?
In the opposite corner Jess and Helen are taking the Dennis approach to the embroidery thread – just cut the stuff that is holding it together and lets get on with it. Mmm – not sure that was a good idea – hindsight is always such a wonderful thing!
Ah, well it passed the afternoon away nicely and there is always next time! Watch this space.
