A crafty sort of day.

Well the children are back at school and for some reason this always makes me feel like making plans and getting organised!!

So today has been about catching up on a few crafting jobs that have been waiting for a little while.

1st job was playing around with the peg loom. I have been asked to do a rug-making workshop at The Naked Sheep ( on Saturday 12th Sep from 7-9pm. So I made a couple of rugs to show what can be done with just 300g of roving. I also had a play with some mad eyelash yarn.

I have always shunned the glitzy fashion yarn, but now I have found a fab use for them. Their interesting texture adds that extra something when used on the peg loom.

2nd job was a present for Rachael's 40th, so sadly I can't show any proper pics yet. Just a little glimse. It let me reflect on how lovely it is to make something for someone special, to spend time thinking about that person.

So now back to the spinning - I should have more to show you next week + some dates for our next crafts fair.

Until next time.
