Can we say--WSW or Westside Weavers???!!

The WSW (Westside Weavers) meetings are always a treat--but, when one of the members returns to our fold from a summer away, it's a double treat.  She brings all the summer 'goodies' for show & tell.  And this group has a method to their madness--around the circle we go--anything you have to show or tell, go for it when it comes to your turn.
Our wayward traveler, Rosemary, has brought the latest issue of Handwoven magazine, which has an article about her summer guild and their indigo dyeing project. 
The magazine also has an article about ply spliting by Louise French, who created this lovely neck wear piece that Rosemary purchased at one of the festivals she attended.
Rosemary is modeling her felt project from a summer workshop--felting on a ball!
What a darling hat!  and only Rosemary can wear something this chic and really look good!
A wonderful doll was another purchase by Rosemary.
Briar Rose Yarns, hand painted yarns at the max!
And Rosemary was weaving--look at these block weave mug mats.................
And during one state conferences, Rosemary took a workshop on warp painting, so here are the results.................
Blue with a splash of red......................
And what clever fringe--
Nice drape and handle in this scarf....................
Another super purchase--a spinners basket with a place for your spindle...split oak made by Susan Preuss
Now we move onto Penny Nelson's handspun boucle--what a great funky yarn!
And Penny's hand models her wonderful cable mitt--note:  knit with two needles!!  Hope pattern comes soon!
This is a super soft cotton yarn--cozy feeling for a cold winter's day.
Dottie's turn now--she brought some of her Christmas ornaments that didn't make it to the fall guild sale (poor Dottie was under the weather and couldn't attend--but, we are richer for it)  She makes these adorable hooked sheep (handwoven fabric on flip side) and cute trees made from empty yarn cones.  Her things sell out fast at the sale.
And just look at these handwoven pin cushions!  Dottie has outdone herself this year--but she is very creative gal and we always look forward to her creations each year. 
Good meeting everyone!!
