It seems that at the moment it is taking me roughly three days to create a blog post. One day for taking pictures (I now have to do this when my helper is asleep). This is what happened at the last photo shoot she helped with:
She likes her yarn 🙂 One day for editing pictures on the computer and loading them to Flickr, and then a third day to type a post.
I have finished a doll. This is my first attempt at softie making.
I think that there will be more…I have plans to make another one of these for Gorgeous Girl with fabric matching her pants and with arms. This was fun!
Oh, what’s that? You’d like to see some of the fleece I dyed?
There was 2 kinds of blue.
Some pinks and brown.
Purple, yellow and green.
Both the yellow and the green are brighter in real life.
Orange and green.
This is the green that I was aiming for, sadly this is not an accurate representation of the green. It still looks good, just different to what I had in mind.
and an experiment that turned into a happy accident.
These were not the colours I was aiming for, and it’s terribly felted, though I’m confident I can work around the felting, and still spin it. I am liking these colours though.
Now I just have to find the time to spin it all…. See me rolling on the floor laughing hysterically…
Still working on sewing down binding on a quilt, and I have alpaca on the wheel resting. I’ll try and ply it tomorrow.
