One Saturday a month a group from my WI have been meeting up at the Cambridge Botanical Gardens to work on crochet impressions of plants. This is part of ‘The Festival of Ideas‘ which takes place in November.
Yesterday was our last Saturday. The next time we meet up we shall be putting the ‘plants’ into position in the glass houses. As the title of this post suggests, our little group was working on the Sea Onion. This is the picture that we were given to work on:
I am not sure what you think but the real one was a lot smaller than we originally thought. It turns out that we are making a giant Sea Onion!
I was going to show you a photograph of the fully constructed thing but it really doesn’t look very good and so I shall wait until we arrange it correctly and put it into the position. It is only a week. This will still be before the exhibition is open properly so I shall still be giving you a sneak preview. I do like to hold you in suspense 🙂
In the meantime – why don’t you pop over and catch up with all the events over on the blogs at Handmade Monday?
