Something new

I have started something new. I got bored the other day so started sorting feathers and found a bag of big peahen feathers that were languishing in the cupboard. Then it was making feather bundles till my fingers were had it. So I thought I'd better start something. By the end of the day I had it underway. The next afternoon I did some more. And yesterday afternoon some more. The feathers are actually quite big so my rows are further apart than usual and the bundles are further apart too…

I also received an email from a friend from Palmerston North who has just finished her first big korowai. And most impressive it is too. Especially as she has used the thin string singly and had to cast…
