my creative space

Happy spring everyone!!
Well I couldn't wait to start on my bunting swap,
eventhough I don't know my swap partner yet ( I'm just hoping whoever they may be they are going to like what I have made). Here's a sneak preview.

As promised here are some pics of Virginia Farm Wool  where I am learning to spin.

 It's just like a candy store!

 Some lush silk and mohair and other fibres.

 And loads of dyes.

And Ta Da - my first skein from the lesson. Does it look soft? Because it is so soft -I love it.
I'm thinking now what colour to dye it....

My husband said the inconsistency  is what gives it  its charm.
This was a compliment about my craft -nearly went into shock!

And it is confirmed - I definetley have the spinning virus. Spinning all those wonderful pinks.

Our creative space has all the usual creative wonderfulness. It's a must see.


  1. Oh how exciting to spin your own wool! The shop does look inviting and interesting!
