Sunday - Mother's Day - hope you all had a lovely day. It started off a bit cold here.
But it did warm up and we all enjoyed some slow stitching with Anne.
A great crew of people who travelled a long way, some from Winton, a 6 hour round trip! A fabulous effort girls.
We also learned that there is "nothing" that you cannot use for Boro. Old and new fabrics, woven or print, almost any type of thread and any design that suits your fancy. It started off in Japan as a form of mending just adding patch after patch, there are almost no rules - if you have a space, just cover it with another patch.
Some ladies worked on small pieces to make a needle case or a bag, several made a start on a vest or jacket. Anne's jacket is what really took my eye. Using a collared shirt as a base that's at least 3 sizes too big for you. Obviously it has to go over other clothes, but it also shrinks with all the heavy stitching.
I can safely say, that my vest is going to take me quite a while!
Sorry about the lack of editing on photos in this post, I'm still trying to work out the instructions on the IPad, not as easy as the desk top.
