Yarn update coming soon!

Yaaarrrrrrrrn! Here's a sneak preview of this month's update...they're drying on the line in the garden:


There are some scary bright orange and black ones too, but they're cooking in a cauldron at the moment. I'm hoping the update will go up some time next week unless there's an attack of the Thyroids, in which case, send help!

When not dyeing, I've been sewing quite a bit lately. I love sewing! I can't get enough of it at the minute. First there were the cushions (strip patchwork. No straight lines, no measuring, no stress!):

Then there was the embroidery...(click for bigger)


This is another one of the hogweeds I've been embroidering (not quite finished!). It's all done on the sewing machine and it's a bit bigger than the ones I did last time, about 10cm across. I'm hoping to get an exhibition together one day, or get a gallery to start selling the pieces. Hmmm. Eventually!

Meanwhile, autumn continues apace out there in the garden...



Sigh. Lovely lovely autumn! Right, better go and check on the skeins in that cauldron before they boil dry! eep!


  1. Oooo perdy yarn! Can't wait to see the update, might have to buy some more again ;)

  2. All that yarn drying is such a temptation! I may just have to direct Mr Josiekitten here before Christmas!

  3. Aargh, you are too talented! Those cushions are just beautiful.

  4. Can't wait to see the new batch of yarns all wound and ready! Great photos too!
