1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Colourful! on: May 04, 2007 12:20:59 PM
It has been ages since I posted on here.  I miss the place.  So good to see  so many people taking up spinning. 

I have been spinning lots lately, following a bit of a break.  I have always been spinning but had a real burst of productivity recently.  I was desperate for some bright colours, thanks to the grey clouds we have had here recently. 

Anyway, enough of the chit chat, here are the fruits of my labour:

Spectrum:

Mermaid:

Aloha:

I have put more on my website, but these three are my favourite I think.

What do you think?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Katamari bag! on: November 03, 2006 06:39:39 AM
I finally got my hands on the game We ♥ Katamari!  Woohoo!  I am so addicted, but worse still my hubby is even more addicted!  I need to practice as he is much better than I am sadly.

Even worse is that the Katamari bug has spread into my crafting life as well and I simply couldn't sleep until I had finished this:



<lj-cut text="naaaa na na na na na na na kat-a-mari dam-a-cy...">



It is a Prince bag, with a lovely wooden handle and although you can't tell that well in the pics there are different shades of green as on the Prince and I even included an antennae!  His face is a pocket!  It looks a strange shape in these pics for some reason must be the things inside...but it is actually a barrel bag.   I even lined it and put a zip on all by myself!

I am obsessed.

3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Yarnfall. on: April 11, 2006 09:37:01 AM
I have been playing around with my yarns and photographed this yarn version of a waterfall:


I have been busy and spun up lots lately.  It is my first update in a while so enjoy!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Creme Egg monster... on: April 02, 2006 10:51:22 AM
I am taking part in a Craft Idol competition on http://www.craftermath.co.uk and the round 2 is to create an Easter Creature/Monster.

Here is my entry, and I am so proud of it as I made it up completely on my own...no pattern used at all!  After all, where else could you find a pattern for a Creme Egg monster in crochet?



5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Yummy yarn....for me!!!! on: February 19, 2006 01:00:48 PM
I normally spin to sell so all the lovely yarn I make and want to keep goes to other people.  So I decided to make some for myself, and I am going to make a felted bag with it afterwards! 

To make a change, I decided to spin the natural merino then paint it afterwards so I could control the colours a bit.  It is inspired by goldfish in lovely blue water.  I was really pleased with the end result and can't wait to start making the bag with it!  What do you think?:



6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fibre Friday! on: January 27, 2006 05:54:27 AM
I made it!  I actually have a couple of skeins to show on a Friday! 

These were both for a custom order, but I may have to recreate them for me as I love them so much.  Really nice vibrant warm colours.  Just what you need on a cold grey winters day!

First up, Dawn:


Secondly, Sequin Monster:



What do you think?  Sorry the pics aren't brilliant, but hot pink and red are hard to get right in photo's for some reason.
7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Twisted Tuesday? on: January 17, 2006 12:10:29 PM
True to form, I have missed Fibre Friday again...but here are a couple of yarns for a Twisted Tuesday:

Sunny Snow: (Natural white merino with Gold Iris Angelina Sparkle Fibre)



Iris Too: (Merino in Purples, Lilac and Yellow - this one is a custom order yarn for someone else called Zoe too!)



Lastly, I visited spinners heaven on Sunday:  Wingham Wool Works in Rotherham, UK!  Oh, it was sooo beautiful.  All kinds of fibre and books and yarn hanging and stuffed everywhere.  I was fairly restrained and only came away with a bit but Iam going back with more money!  here is my stash from the shopping trip:


Anyone else having a Twisted Tuesday?
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / A good buy? on: January 13, 2006 04:19:51 AM
I have seen this on Ebay but am not sure if it is a good buy or not as no clamps and no other accessories.  What do you reckon...and please don't bid against me if I do decide to bid - if anyone on here is already bidding I will return the favour and not bid against you!
