Loving every minute!!

This is Mary Whale. She was asked by a friend ,who has recently been ordained, if she would make her a stole to wear on special occasions and although she had some great ideas she had no idea how to get them to work. She has chosen a Paua theme for her stole and a traditional fish hook design - she used a tattoo on the arm of one of policemen from her office as her design source! We told her to come in and spend the day with us at The Cloth Shop and we would show her how to get started. This photo shows her thread painting the fish hook - she is using paua coloured polyneon and metallic threads. She said she loved doing it felt so happy doing something she loved surrounded by quilts and great music!! - and The Cloth Shop Girls
