Funny Old Week

Well its been a funny old week, I’ve got nothing done which I’d planned to do and definitely no dying. But still these things happen, constantly “say I”.  I did a lot of spinning, some Galway, Zwartles and Leicester. My next spin is Merino in yellow, it’s not primrose or buttercup but an in between, pics in the next post. Also more fleeces trying to be washed and dried but with our weather, this is stop and start. I also had a go at Needle Felting a sheep, this is for a present for a friend, I’m quite pleased with it, but only quite.  I have a thing that unless what I’ve created looks either totally life like or everything is blending, balanced and impressing me it isn’t used, which means I do have an awful lot of samples. But saying that I had two bags I’d made a year ago, never to see the light of day again so I thought, but after a chat and some insight from another friend, out came the bags a fair bit of reworking and more fulling and I now have two bags which I’m happy with.  The saying that you never stop learning is so true.  Going back to the Needle Felting I really enjoyed it and I think will get quite hooked on it. The Carlow craft group created by Helena Kelly Maye of Luvee Baby Knits & Quilts at the Carlow Shoping Centre, is on again next Saturday the 14th June and seems to be getting quite popular, this will be our third time of being there and hopefully will go from strength to strength. I’ll be there with Daisy (my wheel) doing my usual demonstrating, some handspun wool, and a small amount of felted items. Also the girls from the Carlow Made group are in the same Center with their truly remarkable hand created items in a pop up shop for Arts week, so if you are in Carlow for their Arts week on the 14th, do call in and visit with us all. To leave you with this post is a pic of a new shape cobweb style shawl/wrap in extra fine merino embellished with firestar for sparkle and a co-ordinating flower brooch, which was the only wet felted creation I made this week.  Until next time take care and have a great week.
