**YARN DYERS - HELP!!** CHRISTMAS DISASTER! 😭
We had a leak in our house - lucky for the house it was contained in boxes but unlucky for me those boxes contained all my favourite yarn!! It stinks so I need to rinse it. I'm just wondering the best way to dry a lot of yarn - I don't have one of those spinny things you use after dyeing yarn or a dehumidifier.. and I'm worried about using the spin setting on the washing machine but maybe it's ok on low?! However I do seem to have accidentally produced some rather funky unicorn sock yarn.. 🦄

Making use of the yarn I dyed at Fyberspates last year and making earrings to wear to my bestie’s wedding at the weekend (I CAN’T WAIT!) One day the rest of this yarn will become a pair of lovely red socks.. 🧦

Feeling inspired to look around more after Kaffe Fassett’s brilliant Colour Lecture this evening in Bath.
This photo was taken in Dwygyfylchi in North Wales on an evening stroll last week. I was hugely taken by the colours in the heathers and now I feel like I need to paint them or do something creative with this palette.

Now I can’t wait to get to Kaffe’s exhibition at the Victoria Art Gallery to see some of the projects he was talking about in the flesh!

Some of our amazing views from Snowdon last weekend - we were so grateful for that pool when we got back down to the bottom!

Rocking my new balloon dress and having fun and silly times with one of my besties yesterday at a very lovely and beautiful wedding/festival. So much love! ❤️ The pattern is self drafted, fabric is from the lovely Adaku @dovetailedlondon who was a pleasure to do business with!

One day I will go up in a hot air balloon. Living in a Bristol I get to see them fairly regularly and get very over excited at the balloon fiesta 🤗💙🎈

There’s nothing like a good wedding to get me dressmaking! 💙💛

I’m well chuffed with this Frida Kahlo fabric - I found two metres of it in a charity shop for £10! Planning on making it into a dress but haven’t quite figured out the shape yet.. .
