My Creative Space

An afternoon away from yarn, who would think my creative space wouldnt be about dyeing today! although my life does revolve around the dyepot and my little business I thought it was time to take a moment to enjoy the things I dont get to do often! like embroider, and play with my small and quint fabric stash. Im making a few little gifts for friends and penpals, and for once its not a skein of hand dyed yarn.
My sewing box is as messy as they come, with things thrown everywhere and tapemeasure with a life of its own, I can never find it when I need it! Im making a few little pin cushions and a few little embroiderd buttons with the word knit on it to work as brooches. 
One of the fabrics I love is this one, it will become something for a friend, Id like a little project bag out of it, but my sewing machine and I dont love eachother to any degree! this is where I wished I was a seamstress and not a knitter. The skein of yarn is a custom for a sweet girl called Lisa. 
 I hope she likes it. It makes me smile, its a soft stage dance  that turns into a vibrant salsa. I ended up talking  yarn anyway! hehe cant keep a good dyer down.

Tea and Yarn



    sorry i shouldn't yell on your blog :)

  2. Love the yarn, and the fabric is very sweet!

  3. Oh hand dyed yarn is so gorgeous and soft looking. I think I would be tempted to just fondle it all the time. I raise a cup to you!

  4. I like to embroider too & I'm busting to finish those grannies so I can get back to it.

  5. I think all tape measures have a life of their own, maybe they come to life at night as little snakes!

  6. I love the skein of yarn. just delicious! (PS Tape measures - my favourite one always hides from me and the one I don't like very much is always hanging around. Cheeky!)


Thanks so much for the lovely comments! it makes my day to know that Im not babbling to myself!
