Going Quilting

Its that time of the year again. I'm off quilting for 5 days with my friends from Chaos Quilters. I go on Weds 27th July and am back on Tues 2nd August. 5 whole days of sewing and giggling, sleeping in dorms on bunk beds, sharing communal bathrooms and having lots of fun. These ladies know so much about quilting - its like a masterclass everytime I go.

Have fun, see you soon : )

Last of the Summer Yarn

As some of you know, I sold one of my spinning wheels recently. I have put the money I raised into replenishing my yarn stocks. These are what I bought from the last of the money.

This is called Magnolia and I bought 2 skeins of it.

This is called By The Sea and I bought 2 skeins of this too.

They are both by Skein Queen and each skein is 4ply, 100% merino 100g/400m. She exclusively dyed these colours for www.theyarncafe which is where I bought them.

So thats that for at least until after Christmas

(hark - do I hear the sound of disbelieving laughter???)

PS Did I mention the 10kg of undyed yarn and fibre which also arrived, from ?????

More Yarn

I fell off the yarn diet yesterday by buying these:

They are from, a new online yarn shop in Coventry. They have lots of really beautiful yarns and accessories, including several yarns dyed by Skein Queen in exclusive colourways. This one is called Snow White's Apple and is a 4ply 100% superwash merino. Each skein is 100g and 400 metres. I feel a shawl coming on : )
