We are all enjoying a little more breathing space now, with all 3 children sharing the main bedroom together.. after all the beds were moved MissA remarked "ah, back to normal again", which i thought was *so* sweet. . i obviously never realised how much she enjoyed being with the twins (they all shared a bedroom in our last house too.. she must have remembered!) Marcel & I have squeezed, literally, our bed into the front small room - very zen & loving it, and the other small room is now the walk in wardrobe.. it all makes so much sense now! The children even have floor space to play in their own room so I am not constantly tripping over the train track each time i walk thru the front door into the loungeroom. le sigh. It WAS a frantic weekend to achieve all that..let's just say two trips to ikea in the space of 3 days is enough!
So, now i have the studio to organise so i can get in there & dye up a frenzy.. I need to put the services on, yah, i NEED electricity & water up there, and insulate with some enviro foam.. or even some of that crappola downy fiber i was given a few years back could do the trick on a portion of the wall space.. we'll see. All i know is this is the crispiest coldest winter we have endured in the cool mountainous regions for some time.. & we are ALL over it. Spring - bring it on!
I shall leave you with a cheery woolly wonder that had me up until 3am one morning not so long ago, frogged only twice before i nailed the pattern that became this luscious Asymmetrical neck attire.. i just LOVE the wee hours for delerious moments of creative clarity!
For this neckie I used one of my terrabellaspun batt yarn & trim sets & it's heavenly! see the luscious onion-dyed organic merino lockeys in there as stripping sections.. oh, they are *so* soft n lushious n something else..
For my new Scarf & Trim sets I corespin the trim at the end of the yarn & turn around & part-ply it.. i winged that technique so dont ask me how i discovered part-plying.. but it is totally FUN.. i may show you guys one day at a workshop - it's a horror of a technique to do, you get a rush from it! yeah.. so now i am doing it to all my trims!!
see you soon *-* happy spinning
