UPTON CROSS CRAFT SHOW 12TH TO 21 ST AUGUST

Getting prepared for the show , this year in new village hall only as school having repair work done.Hope for good weather as several of us will be doing demonstrations of different crafts outside in the updated playing field which has some covered areas.

Lots of excellent work to be seen, new talent every year, everything of a very high standard.

I shall have naturally dyed wools, British Sheep wools, garments, hats, felt making supplies and of course will be spinning  this year on a new wheel from Krominski.

Come and try yourself, both spindle spinning and on the wheel

Up date on Spinning, Dyeing and knitting.

After a difficult winter looking after my seriously ill husband I am now back into the throes of producing work.

Unfortunately I shall only be doing 2 shows this year at the moment, Upton Cross in August and 3Bags Full Liskeard in October, due to caring for my husband.

However I have been relaxing with spinning and knitting, photos to follow and have started natural dyeing now weather improving as biggest problem is getting yarn dry.

Waist coat is Handspun Shetland and Blue Face Leicester fleece, the dyed wool daffodils, onions, and dandelions.

I have treated myself  a new wheel a Krominski Minstral, very fast and easy to use

This garment is knitted diagonally using Handspun merino, cashmere and silk.

There is a new magazine British Fibre Crafts out well worth a look.

I have also been doing some pin loom weaving on a 10 cm frame [ 4 inches] as it was very easy to carry to the hospital my husband was in as well as my knitting.

It is certainly true that fibre arts are stress relieving.
