Weyfest 2015

I have taken few weeks off from blogging and almost all social media over the last few weeks for a much needed break. I have still been felting, including finishing the rainbow wall hanging I started in August.

I like how the rainbow colours are subtly coming through the grey and brown background.

And I started a new hat, using some of the lovely BFL locks I bought at woolfest:

I didn't even get a chance to photograph it before it sold, literally the first person to see it fell in love with it, here she is sporting her new head-gear at Weyfest, one of our local music festivals:

Her blond hair complements the locks on the hat wonderfully.

We (West Surrey Spinners Weavers and Dyers) received a lot of interest from the fabulous gothic morris dancers that have attended for at least the last few years. I taught one of them to use a drop spindle (she was a natural) and they even treated us to several dances right in front of our pitch.

You can see some of my hats in the lower left corner of the bottom of the picture, most of which sold, I really couldn't have asked for a better or more exhausting day. I can't wait for Weyfest 2016!


  1. Glad to see you're back and have been busy Teri! The rainbow piece is great and the harts are so much fun! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Your hats look amazing and your rainbow piece is just so cheerful. x

  3. Thank you Mysterymar, I do enjoy making the hats, they're always a bit of surprise (they never quite turn out how I expect) and hopefully that shines through :)

  4. Great job on selling the hats. They are so whimsical that I knew people would just love them :)
