Much Needed Update

Here are 2 pages that I have finally completed and photographed. I know it has been a while, but I am a seasonal scrapper and I have been swept away with other crafts.

WooHoo Project Bag

I just love love this project bag.

It used up a little more fabric than I thought and I didn't have much in my stash.The next time I think I will need to buy more. This bag will fit a sock project in it, but that is about all.

First Roving Spin

I got some un-dyed merino roving today and I am so happy with it. I found that if I make it a little thick, it breaks really really easy and that makes me a little frustrated but I keep going with the thought that I will get better at it as time passes.

Mmmm Spinning

I brought a spinning wheel and I must say it's sooo hard for me. I have never even contemplated getting one until now, and I received a bag of raw uncleaned sheep's wool with it. Seeing that is all I have had to play with I spend the better part of a day cleaning the wool getting it ready for spinning. I have a few rovings on the way, so I think I will keep playing until they arrive.

Here is my first attempt at spinning raw cleaned wool...grrrrrr I need so much more practice.

Here is my first attempt at food colouring yarn dying
