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!

image

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.

Happy New Year!

Hello gorgeous fairy folk I hope you are well and not too soggy.

Hasn’t it rained ( I know that may be the understatement of the year so far!) Even in sunny little Jersey it has rained and rained … Oh and rained some more. For the first time this week I managed to collect Little Miss H without getting totally soaked.

Anyhow, what have I been up to you may ask. Well there has been crochet rug making

Here is a different angle for you

Look at my happy flowers pretending it’s not winter! Little Miss H has claimed the rug … Although I still have quite a few rounds to go.

Then there was quite a bit of this

Some of this

Scarf making … I have to say it is taking longer than anticipated to complete my 29 squares! I hope to have them complete before the really cold weather hits!

I think the reason my makes are taking so long is because I have been lured by the gorgeousness of felt flowers! Here is my next attempt in the making!

image

Daisies and a bright yellow chrysanthemum that makes me smile! Hope to show you the finished article soon!

Until next time, I’ll be trying to finish off projects!
