Place: The Hermitage at Daylesford [ about a 40 minute drive away on sunny country roads ]
The cast: the gorgeous Zoe from Purl's Palace which is my favourite YS [ can't be a LYS cos it's not really local ], and nine adventurous ladies some of whom I'd met previously. One of these was Pat who'd driven the 3+ hours from Apollo Bay last night. Oh, and moi of course.
The occasion: my first workshop for Purl's Palace... Shibori Dyeing on Silk
The specs: Gaywool Dyes on medium Habutae, 8 minutes in the microwave.
Here are some of the girls stitching serenely in the sunlit courtyard
The result: judge for yourself :]
Stitching and tieing and the latest in fashionable headgear
It was a bit rushed towrds the end mainly because of the time getting them all through the 2 microwaves and I really didn't get to recap so maybe a slightly less leisurely lunch next time but otherwise nothing I'd change. Doing the much more labour intensive stitched and tied ones first was definitely the way to go.
