It’s Tour de Fleece time over at Ravelry (for non-spinners/knitters this is a spin-along that mirrors the Tour de France). I missed the first two weeks due to being away, but I’m making up for lost time now.
This is merino dyed by me way back when I first started spinning. I’ve finished spinning all of the fibre and have decided to leave it as a single, so it just needs to be washed and set.
On the subject of yarn, recently some lovely cotton (not spun or dyed by me) was turned into this.
Before we left for Australia I sat down and made some cards. Here are some that I’m particularly pleased with.
I love how this turned out and it’s made from scraps. The brown came from my friend Kerin and is left over from my Zambia mini-album, the flower decoration came from SMIL and the green is the last remnant of a very old piece of paper. Tag is hand crafted from a tiny scrap I had in the scrapbox. I love it when things come together.
A fair while ago my friend Kerin spent some time punching circles from her scraps for me. She gave me a vast array of patterns and sizes when I visited her and I’ve been slowly using them up.
Card number one.
Circles and hand-drawn elements. Then I took it a step further
and added some hand drawn petals for the second card.
