Nuno Felted Summer Scarf/Wrap Workshop.

We had our last workshop for the year at Precious Purl today.

 Our participants made beautiful filmy wraps with Muslin. These would be equally beautiful on silk but the girls chose muslin. Glen selected wool top, silk top, mohair curls and some silver lurex to make this beautiful tone on tone wrap, just right for cool Summer evenings. This was a great workshop for beginning Felters to learn the steps involved in Nuno Felting without too much of the rubbing /rolling being required. Glen, our sometime assistant at Precious Purl, did a great job on her first felted piece.


Moyna chose beautiful blues and greens producing a gorgeous wrap she was making for a gift. Lucky friend!
This was a 3 hour workshop that I will run again at Precious Purl as it produced lovely results in a short space of time.

I have just 3 more posts to reach my 100th and I am planning a great giveaway, so keep checking back!!

Keep checking our Lara Downs Online Sale (see the address in my sidebar!) for some great bargains too.
All products featured in the Sale are available from Precious Purl - Wednesday to Saturday 11 -4pm.

 I don't often have personal posts on my blog, but sometimes, very important family happenings need to be announced to the World!!

The Purly Family Number 1 and only son has become engaged to his long time love!

We had a great Party to celebrate this event along with a House-warming of their beautiful home!  We are so happy for both of them!

It's not just his Mum who thinks he looks about 18 years old. He was always the one asked for ID!
He's really almost 28!!
Wonder where those youthful genes came from??
