2020 Alice Springs Beanie Festival Voting update

Hi everyone, a huge thank you to everyone who has voted in the Alice Springs On-line exhibition. It all ends tomorrow so there is still time to cast your vote, it’s close, so every vote counts.

Here’s a little bit of background for my entry ‘A Pygmy Possum, Wombat & flame Robin enjoying the Alpine Spring

& here’s where to vote

The piece depicts the Flora & Fauna of the Australian Alpine region. As best I could, I tried replicating this landscape with crochet & felting (both wet & needle).

Aussie Flora Tea Cosy

Due to being rather time poor, I don’t usually take on custom orders, mainly  to avoid disappoint when expectations can’t be met.

But then, I met a lovely lady at Knitfest. She was very enthusiastic about my work & asked if I’d create an Aussie Floral Tea Cosy for her.  I decided to take on the challenge & I’m very happy with the result.

The Tea Cosy body crocheted with double thread hand spun yarn & embellished with wet felted & crocheted flowers & leaves.

This is Virginia’s Aussie Flora Tea cosy… enjoy!
