Textiles have been my life in many shapes and forms for many years. Apart from dyeing I have taught many different techniques.
I'm putting together some bundles for a class on a couple of weeks, but am offering some here.
Bundles of 3 pieces of viscose felt. Normally £5 each, offered for £10 plus postage. All bundles are different. Please leave a comment if you are interested and I will get in touch. There are several bundles available and payment can be made via PayPal.
It’s surprising what a random choice of colours will produce. The Spirit blankets are all based around the daily temperatures of each month, and in previous months their position has been determined by Theo ‘appearance’. This month I’ve chosen a different way to work. I won’t give you too many details at the moment, but I’m enjoying the process
Each additional round is presenting a new idea
And I have a suspicion that I’ll return to this mix and use it in the future
But that’s all I’ll show you today, and in truth it gives no indication of the finished square.
It’s what you might call …
‘A teaser’ !!!
Hope it’s cool enough to crochet where you are. It’s a little warm here.
Yes, April was finished last Thursday evening. Phew! Now I can get on with May, which is a little more colourful.
I have a few things on the back burner which I’ll share with you over the next weeks but one thing is for certain – I won’t be starting July until June is finished – which will have to wait until after May!
I have really enjoyed using these colours. It’s been secretly in progress during the trials and tribulations of the Spirit of April. No view of the finished blanket for a while, though, as it’s intended as a gift.
The colours used are Stylecraft colours. Don’t forget that you can make 120 different squares with just these five colours. More Five Colour Friday inspiration can be found here.
There will be another post in this series very soon as I think I’ve found my most favourite shade of red ever! Watch this space…..
To say that it’s been ‘warm’ here is a bit of an understatement! According to the thermometer the garden temperature is currently 30 deg C. The days have been sunny and warm – each day fielding glorious blue skies and no rain in evidence at all. If the heat continues we will probably be under a hosepipe ban – this part of the UK is usually first to experience that. Apart from a couple of days of heavy rain during late May we have hardly had a drop since last year. Bet you didn’t expect to hear that about ‘rainy UK’!
As a result the Temperature blanket has taken a very colourful turn! Here are nine days from June to illustrate my point!
The end of May was interesting too – but as a month, so far this beats them all!
