A colourful diversion

I had an appointment with my G.P. this morning that I have been rather anxious about. I knew there was no need to be but hey ho. Oh, I did mention the brain zapping. Hmm… I think she thinks I’m crazy (having never heard of it before). Hey ho times twice.

The diversion… The arrival of this feast of colour put a smile back on my face. It’s the first time I’ve ever bought fibre online and I’m so impressed. Thanksย World of Wool.

The photo doesn’t do the colours justice. The yellow isn’t fluorescent! Here are three close ups…

Such yummyness! Such excitement! Top left ‘Aquarius’, top right ‘Duckle Daisy’ and bottom is ‘Higglety Pigglety’. Love those names. There’s a roll of Corriedale Pumpkin up in the top image and the rest of the fibre is 500 grams of Botany Lap Waste. This is a surprise as you don’t know what will be in this bag of luscious broken tops.

Just to be clear, World of Wool aren’t paying me to write this. I’m really happy with my order and I want to give this family run business a thumbs up. How I would love to visit their shop up in Yorkshire!

Higglety Pigglety is now twisting its merry way on to my spinning wheel.

A happier and colour full day after all ย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

New device & Fibre fest!

My old tablet broke down suddenly so I’ve lost some stuff unfortunately. Thankfully Lovely Husband has bought me this shiny, new to me, reconditioned device. To celebrate I’m having a sit down moment while I let you lovely people know ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you to my new followers for following me ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t feel so alone on this bloggy journey now!

I mentioned a fibre fest…

I’ve had a frozen shoulder and as it slowly thaws I’m able to return to pursuits like spinning and weaving. There is fibre everywhere as I cannot spin and weave fast enough as I make up for lost time. I want to post some pictures but when I opened WordPress on this new device it said it had a new editor so I clicked on it and now I don’t know how to get back to the old one. I think it’s called Aztec. Apparently it’s not fully set up yet… oops. Tech stuff sends my stress levels through the stratosphere. So… I’ll try and sort things out and maybe another picture post will appear soon…hopefully ๐Ÿ™‚

New Edit…

Here’s a couple of images. It’s taken me a while to discover how to upload them. And the save button has disappeared… ???

The yarn was spun on my trusty old Pipi Wendy which I have had for nearly 40 years. I’ve only had my 32″ Ashford rigid heddle loom for a year but I wouldn’t do without it now.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon xxxx
