About

I have been creating things since I was 7 or 8 (many eaons ago now!). I have been through the tapestry, knitting, tatting, embroidering and cross stitch phases. I think I eventually moved away from each craft as I could only follow other people's patterns - as my artistic skills seem to be nil!

That all changed in August 2010. I found to my delight that it was possible to BUY a spinning wheel, and did not need to have the knowledge and the wheel passed down through generations of the family!

As soon as I possibly could I attended a full day workshop, which was basically spinning for dummies. It took me from dirty fleece to plyed yarn.

I then launched into spinning - big time. I adore it. I find that it is extremely relaxing - and I get something useful at the end…

Since August I have invested in 2 wheels and a drum carder. The spinning passion has also reignited my love of knitting. I have made innumerable hats, many of which I have felted in the washing machine - which has led onto learning how to needle felt flowers to adorn them with.

If the devil makes work for idle hands, he does not stand a chance in this house!
