My week with fluff, resin and spring
This week I have been a busy spring bee. Not only have I been working hard getting things ready for wonderwool, but I've been doing it sporting a beehive hairstyle (my current hairstyle obsession) so I think that counts doubly towards me being a busy spring bee!
So, I've been making some lovely spindles whorls for the show, concentrating on using up some pressed flowers that I gathered last summer from my garden.
I've also been spinning and dyeing yarn for my shop. Since I've got my new addition to my fleet (Maple the Lendrum) you cant stop me!
I've also been really enjoying reading a retro favourite - "a country diary of an Edwardian lady" recently. I love comparing the way spring unfolds in 1902 compared with today, and learning wildflower names at the same time. Spring is about a month ahead right now!
