I had just washed my special Koala Tea Cosy knitted by my Mother using Mohair, hung it on the line to dry. As I was standing over the sink in my kitchen I looked out and there was this Magpie pulling mohair with its beak for its nest. How smart is it. Many of my lady friends have reported similar visits from birds that peck wool drying from the clothes line.

Its Bellingen market this Sat 17th July 2010 and as I purchased a pair of extra special kangaroo boots from the stall next to us Wallaby Tracks I decided that if I am going to wear them I must have a beanie to match. I found some carded beige mohair in my stash and dyed it to match the contrast musty pink on the boots. Please No rude remarks if you see me, laughing is allowed.
If you too wish to have a pair of these Kangaroo boots check out their stall at Bellingen or http://www.wallabytracks.com.au/
My latest creations of newly hand made felt hats using the wet felt method.Very colourful for this winter to show off to wear to a special function or just to keep you warm.
I am bringing these hats to Bellingen market July 17th. These are not massed produced every hat is created by hand even dyed so you get a indivual piece of art. Priced to suit most budgets.
Its July 2010 and winter is in the air time to wear a smart felt hat and chunky hand spun knitted scarf. Top black hat is on the small size with a felted band with its ends made as a feature tied at the side in a knot leaving the ends to point upwards.
Below Dark Green (not shown colour up - sorry) felt hat for a person who likes a medium size. It has a curved upward brim and the band is green felted with embellishment with glitter showing thru. Very stylish but casual. The Scarf is green and rustic browns blended thru. Both scarfs have very long tastles to create extra length without weight.
