Fibre, flowers and lots of practice!

happy Wednesday lovely fairy folk,

It’s been very busy here at the toadstool. I’ve been experimenting with little felt flowers. It started with daisies.

Then an anemone and a rose bud sprung up.

Followed by a little lavender brooch.

All this flower making was to prepare for a workshop I was delivering last Saturday afternoon … It was very exciting and it all went really well. So many different types of flowers! I love all the colours … Stunning.

So gorgeous. We had a fantastic afternoon.

So onto the practice. I haven’t had a lot of time and my little Ashford Kiwi 2 was looking at me reproachfully from the corner. So with half an hour to spare I sat down and worked hard on getting a more even yarn. This is the merino prior to spinning … So fluffy!

It was dyed when I got it. I ordered it from Wingham Wool … Quick delivery and a fabulous service. So I got to spinning it and now it looks like this.

It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland for some reason!! I now need to decide what to ply it with. I love the fact that no one will have yarn exactly like mine. Not sure what I’ll make with it … Watch this space!

Anyway, until next time I’ll be spinning and maybe even crocheting.
