I love all things fibre, I'm a hand spinner, weaver, dyer, rug hooker, hand stitcher and just love creating in general. I try to create practical useful items for others to enjoy. Here you will find the day to day workings of my projects. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your visit.

Warping the loom
Threading the reed.
Lots of weft choices
A new year has begun and I'm busy setting up my loom for weaving cocoon jackets. I've warped the loom with 2ply wool - yarn from my Romney sheep. I have lots of choices for the weft as you can see - a room full of wool that needs to be turned into useful items. Now if only Zoe would cooperate - these walk breaks are cutting into my weaving time.
