I set out to make a brooch. But as you can see these are not brooches.
I went off on another tangent and have been playing around with a few of my own ideas.
Lots of circles and links and cottons.
This one evolved out of a want to use a colour combination away from my usual choices. It was a deliberate choice to move out of my comfort zone. And basically I finished with strands of chains because I was getting tired of the circles! I think it works?
Currently playing with bracelets and working out a fastening mechanism.
Loved creating this granny mandala. It has been claimed by my daughter.Just need to back so that it can hang on her wall.
And my new addiction. After some really helpful advice from Rie i spun wool!
Bloggy community has been really helpful actually. Sara has been focusing on spinning too.
But now I realise I can't do my usual "muddle my way through a project".
I need professional help.
There are too many mistakes and too many questions I have .
And I'm just not that good at it. My spinning at the moment I call "freeform". My way of saying it lacks consistency. Over spun and underspun. But hey I can only improve.
And after searching and alot of dead ends I managed to find a place where I can learn to spin and buy fleece from. So next week I am off to spinning school. I am a bit nervous about it as I get really self conscious when I am not confident. But it is another case of getting out of my comfort zone.
Send positive thoughts my way for a sunny day sunday. We are doing a local school fete and the forecast isn't great!
Hope its happy creative days with you. Check out more creations here.
Apologies - when ever I go to edit my mistakes the surrounding letters are disappearing. So I gave up.
