Three rugs and a birthday

There is original talent among our weavers. Doug, for example, sits unobtrusively at meetings spinning miles of yarn on an electric spinner. The yarn is to feed his looms – and every so often he will come along with a rug that astonishes us all with its inventiveness and beauty (often describing it modestly as “just an experiment”).

Another weaver who likes to try new things is Helen. After the initial frustrations of chenille (remember chenille?) she persisted and created this with its rich colours.

She calls it her "caterpillar rug"

And Helga (who also creates original masterpieces, though most often with wheel or needles) had a significant birthday. Look what she and Hugh brought to celebrate!

Mmmm...

Mmmm…

Hugh looked on with pride (or was it partly anticipation?)

The cake was every bit as rich and delicious as it looks.
Thank you Helga and Hugh for sharing this special occasion with us!
