One more workshop! Weaving!

On Saturday November the 1st, the month started beautifully!
Anna of In My Closet blog organized one more very successful workshop!
This time she chose to change the venue and instead of her cozy welcoming kitchen we moved to cozy welcoming Button (Koumbi) Coffee and Crafts. I have mentioned this really nice crafting beehive cafe here and Anna made her workshop there.
This time we were more people scattered in little tables all around the cafe.
The plan was to make a cardboard loom and weave wool around it.
That's mine here. I used Anna's lovely wool and couldn't put it down!

  Sipping coffee and weaving!So relaxing!
Everyone made really beautiful things....
Melina wove very fast and finished before everyone else!
 Sophie (my former pupil!) made a great combination of colours!

 And Eleanna of aouts-pins made things more exquisite by adding shapes to her work!

 But of course all of us were in trouble with the tension of the loom as it tended to be narrower in the middle.
Some others finished their work of art really quickly! Like Lia of Meandmamacreations...
 ...and put it into good use!
Unfortunately I was too concentrated to my work to take more pictures but you can read about it here too as Eleanna of aouts-pins blogged about it as well.
We of course ate a little bit too, some fantastic chocolate mint cookies by Vasso of daxtilostovaso and Eleanna's cookies of course and my usual muffins!
I also made something for Anna to commemorate my one year of attending her workshops.
A small Christmas ornament, a closet that looks like her kitchen cupboards! I found the pattern on the web and transformed it into a felt piece.

And finally I finished my woven piece the next day!

 It so reminded me of sunsets at the beach house!
 So I added a setting sun and put it into an IKEA frame I happened to have at home and for the time being it is set on my new bookcase.

 Thank you Anna for one more great workshop!
