You may not know

… that in a previous life I dyed!

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.

Five Colour Friday 

Five colour Friday is here again, and I think that I have found my most favourite red! 

These colours go so well together – and would make a beautiful blanket. Simply using a simple repeated block would be stunning

But don’t forget that you can make 120 different colour combinations using just these five colours. Details of this can be found here

As for this delicious yarn – it’s by Deramores

Burnt Orange, Fuchsia, Raspberry, Ruby and Wine

Worth going over to have a look especially as they often have very good offers, and always reward purchases.

This is fun

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. 

I did it!


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! 

Five Colour Friday 

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.

Saffron. Tomato. Meadow. Cypress. Mustard.
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…..
