Anytime our weavers group is invited to Olga and Gordon’s home during the summer months, I know we are in for a treat. We enjoyed a wonderful day gathered together under an apple tree, surrounded by multitudes of Olga’s red poppies and breathtaking gardens . My camera kept drawing me away to explore the gardens until the show and tell projects started appearing from baskets and bags. I took my monks belt table runners off the loom the night before and was pretty happy that they were hemmed and washed although still a little damp. I had seen Judtih’s crackle weave project on Instagram that same day and figured she too was motivated to get a project done in time for the weavers group. Anne Marie joined us for the first time and it was fun to see that she was knitting with one of my hand dyed yarns . Barb brought her friend Norene and if our general fiber mania didn’t frighten her, I hope she can come again as I didn’t get time to talk with her very much.
All in all, a day to cherish in our memory as the perfect place to be on a lovely summer day. Thanks Olga for your generosity in sharing your home and gardens.
