Hand dyed Roving :)
I dyed this up yesterday, my first attempt :) The colours arn't very bright, because I panicked and didn't dye it for long enough... LOL
Was terrified of it felting....
Anyway, as it was drying I was convinced I'd felted it....but now it is dry, it hasn't, well not a lot, the ends have felted a bit ;)
I've just pre-drafted some, thats why there are only 3 bundles....and its spinning up really well.....

My first wheel spun Yarrrrrn :o)
This is made from a spindled single and a wheel spun single....
It took me ages to get the hang of it....but once it clicked, it clicked big time :) I think I need lots more practice :)
So much so that I rang Winghams this morning and ordered a kilo of fibre.... he he he

What would I do without my friends?
For a number of reasons, I've been feeling really down, doing a lot of "hole dwelling" as my friend Gemma likes to call it.....can't seem to pull myself out of it :(
Anyway, I had a couple of friends over yesterday.... Lottie and Sarah and they both cheered me up, no end....
Lottie and I stitched and bitched till 2pm (well no bitching was actually involved....just chatter), then Sarah cam over at 7.30pm and we did the same, and ate Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Brownie Ice-cream and drank beer whilst watching Heroes.... *grins*
Sarah also brought me a fantastic present, something I've been meaning to get myself into for ages, but have never quite got around to it.
She's made me a spindle!!! And bought me 100g of Corriedale roving from Winghams Its so lovely......had a little go at spindling whilst she was here, and I really like it....will do some more tonight!
So, thankyou my lovely friends, for being right there and knowing what do say to let me have a little vacation from my hole :)

Myself and Mrs Flowerpot have set up a new blog, especially for our felted bags, called Woollymamas
We're going to be blogging our pattern writing experiments, posting links to other cool bags that people have done, and just generally trying to be more creative than just making Longies... *GRIN*
Check it out!!!
