Nuno Bead Meditation Workshop with Nancy Ballesteros

This weekend we invited Nancy Ballesteros from Treetops Colour Harmonies down to show us how she makes her wonderfully textured felted beads.
13 of us gathered at the Yallingup Hall Friday afternoon and despite the heat, beavered away until the beach beckoned some for a swim. Back at Sue#2's house after supper we finished off fulling the nuno felt, and Saturday we learnt how to construct the beads.

We had a productive but relaxed time, (a good job, as it was a bead meditation workshop!) 
We bought lots of goodies from Nancy and have a new reason, not that we really need one, to collect all those wonderful fabric scraps and visits to the Op shops.

Thank you Nancy for your tutoring, and thank you to all the girls that came, for the food, wine and wonderful company. A good time was had by all.
