UPDATING PROBLEM NOW SORTED

I have been having trouble getting onto my page for updating on new computer, now cracked it!. The security settings were stopping me so will now have more frequent updates.

New spun wool arriving this week from our fleeces, cannot wait to see how it has turned out.

Some of my designs accepted for new knitting magazine, will let you know when it is published.

Order book is now full so cannot take on any more until the New Year, unless there are any experienced knitters out there who would like to knit for me.Each pattern is individual as my garments are one off designs.

I have plenty of wool for sale for those who knit for them selves.

I have been asked to design a coat using as many types of spun fleece from different breeds of sheep and lots of different stitches.This will keep me busy, my brain is buzzing with ideas.

SPRING IS HERE

Well weather is getting warmer, flowers coming out for spring colour so busy with sketch book and yarn wrapping.

Going to be moving house shortly so lots of sorting out of fibres, threads, wool and fabric as well as folders of work.I don’t want to throw anything away but some of sketchbooks are over 10 years old and not going to be room for everything.

If fabric pieces are not 6 inches they will be going to after school club and charity shop.

I have a Bernina machine for sale, in excellent condition used only for machine embroidery, also a Hebridean spinning wheel and tapestry frame as well as books on textiles and embroidery.They will be on ebay and Gum tree

Just seen our first swallows, they have come back to old nest.

I will still be here for Open Studios in June and  will be at Upton Cross Craft event in August.
