I’ve finally got a finished skein of yarn to share…the fibre I showed two posts ago well it’s taken me forever to get it spun due to everyday life getting in the way…
this yarn was meant to be coils and when it came time to ply I completely forgot to ply the way my spinoff 2009 magazine showed me, so now my coils are what I like to call witchettygrubs😂🤣 …oh well its plyed and balanced so I’m sure someone will love it and buy it at the 2019 beanie festival…
Tonight I’ll get out some more fibre & my copy of The spinners book of yarn designs and try some of the yarn ideas in it as I’m thinking of making more art style yarns coming into this new year..
I went and visited my friend Kathy at her art studio yesterday. I’ve been so busy and so has she so we haven’t seen each other in a few months so we had plenty of gossip to share! 😉…
So while I was there I managed to get most of the rolags from my last post spun and I added some assorted blue finnx fleece to the bobbin as well. I’m going to ply it with some other fibres that I’m spinning tonight.
…arnt they the best!!
I went to our local markets this morning and I didn’t come home empty handed.
I was only going for a coffee and a lamington but I walked past a ladies stall and she was selling Australian indigenous artists paintings on canvas and they were all signed with the artists names and stories on the back and where the artists live.
They were so beautiful that I decided on two pieces of works from 2 different ladies.
Then I walked on past the local honey makers and couldn’t resist the tiny beeswax candles nor the honey varieties so after a couple of tastes I bought the one I liked the best.
I’m going to burn this candle tonight. I then got totally side tracked on my way into another shop by a lady who had a stall full of scrappy journals!!!
My heart was so happy when I seen them!.. but not so happy with the prices!… eeeeeek!!!
Then I had a inspired moment and asked the lady to do a personal journal for me!.. I gave her my two beautiful painted canvases and asked her to use them as the covers and can she make the journal with a tarot inspired art and colours feel!.. she was so excited to do it for me and I’m going to give her some of my spare tarot cards and send her some images to inspire her as to what types of colours I’d like in it.. I can’t wait to see it… Im so happy right now!
Ok tonight I will get my wheel out and spin so the next post I can show you the polwarth rolags as a yarn. They have been patiently waiting for close to a month I’m sure to be spun!.
An awesome emu sculpture I seen today at the olive pink botanic garden here in town. I went for coffee and cake but the cafe is still closed for the new year.
