More spinning and some dyeing
I have been spinning, but not only spinning but dyeing yarn as well! My final project at school is going to be a 3D landscape made with spun and dyed yarn, knitting, felting, fulling, bobbin lace, tatting, etc. It's so exciting! I am making samples at the moment. If anyone has any other good ideas of how I can create texture using different techniques, let me know!
Aside from that we are completely re-arranging our house at the moment. We decided we didn't have enough storage and are fixing that. Its not all done yet as I am busy with lots of other things, so its sort of half done. My sewing room is trashed, but its all ok. I am going to a friends house for a craft day. Don't you just love craft days! All you need is your current project, a bunch of crafty friends and some baked goods.
This is what I made for today. They both have chocolate chips in them as requested by my bloke. He said if I was making some for a craft day I should replenish our biscuit container at the same time. I made choc chip biscuits and choc orange muffins. Both made up as I went along because I couldn't concentrate on the recipe books long enough to choose. Hopefully I shan't poison anyone.
