Hi there. Gosh the weeks seem to be flying by.
Hope everyone is having a good day and checking out all the creativity over at ourcreativespaces
This week I made one more brooch for my mum.
I tried a new flower pattern from this book.
I'm not sure I would have been able to follow this pattern if I had tried it at the beginning of the year.
But I've come along way baby...
This is the same book I used for my vintage booties
And look what I won?!! How lucky am I!
Did you notice the very arty envelope it arrived in?!
And now I just have to decide on what to do with my robin.
I really do want it on my wall ...it is so beautiful.
And what's been happening on the wheel I hear you ask?
(well someone maybe wants to know?)
I've been madly spinning my red so I can continue with my current project - YES I started.
But before I show you I just had to take a photo of the weigh in.
How spot on was I?!!
And here it is . The beginning of my granny square.
It will tell the story of the start of learning to spin.
The orange was the first and quite chunky. I noticed my red is a lot thinner.
And now I'm madly spinning up some purple, as that's the next round.
At this weeks spinning group I learnt to spin silk. I also learnt that one of the ladies that also goes to the group has the 1funkyknitwit blog. And wow it is a must see if you love knitting,spinning, yarn, dyeing, sewing....she definitely is one funky lady. She has also included an extensive resource page.
Right, are you still with me?
Last but by no way least.
Have you checked out Craftyrie ? Well Rie is compiling a Universal Craft Blog Directory!
This has the potential to be the biggest list of Crafty Bloggers out there and it is growing by the minute.
Do you have a crafty blog? (you can determine if your blog is crafty - do you make, create or buy lots of crafty stuff?) If the answer is yes go over and link up . Go on.
