Yarndale 2016 - Part 2

Another pic heavy post sorry lol
Repurposed clothing for a start ..

 Really liked the circles afghan sample below, enlarge to see it better -

Just some of the very many socks that were also donated to be sold for charity and visitors sat sitting, knitting and relaxing : )

Loved these bowls made from - telephone wire!!
Handcrafted by Zulus, exquisitely made too.

 Don't they look different displayed upside down! Makes me go dizzy!
I spotted this fabulous coat on a visitor - if you recognise yourself -

I bought the pattern for this Mystical Lantern below,
from Janie Crowe, she sold kits too but I resisted the full kit : )

A cracking rug made from strips of wool laid on edge and stitched together. They had smaller sizes as plate mats too.
Found it on the stall Bapple and JoJo where
Gill Curwen displayed her work.

Gill had been a co founder of Woolfest which takes place in Cockermouth each year and follow the link to see a magnificent sheep she made.
A rather unusual bag idea, pretend grass with a fabric lining but we saw one visitor sporting one on her shoulder!
So sorry but I cant have taken a picture of the seller to give 
them credit.

There was an 'ice cream van' outside into the full spirit of the event too!

I adored these kits to make little girls dresses too.
Utterly beautiful, love the idea.
Knitted bodices with liberty lawn skirts.
Pricelessly pretty but perfect with boots too!

Oh and this is an idea I have been playing with,
an unfinished Frozen-ish tree lol
I've plans for several more, a bit different to my other trees but kind of fun to make.
Hopefully they may sell in time for Christmas.

Tomorrow I will post what I bought - erm for instance - 2 Quilt Mania books for a start - one theoretically for our stitchy club library - maybe lol
