(thats the corner of my daughters Primary school on the left)
It feels weird to be sitting on the sofa and able to see the hills! I want to set up a nice little seating area out there now & it`ll be just right :o) Breakfast on the balcony, listening to the birds sounds good to me.

Do you remember the lovely naturally dyed silk cap & handspun mulberry silk thread that I brought a few weeks ago? From Debbie at Mulberry Dyer (who shall be at Wonderwool Wales at the weekend for anybody who is going)
Well this is the first time that Ive used either of them... the cap is the light green - I love the texture of it, I only used about 2/3 of 1 layer from the silk cap and got a lovely thick lushious effect. The gold thread stands out really well too. I dropped a few bright gold nepps near to the silk thread too, but I dont think Ive got them on the photo.
This side is my favourite its all hot pinky purple, blue violet & more purple - yum. The other side is dark purple & peacock blue with torn chiffon ribbons & thinly sliced felt beads... I love the richness of the colours & it was interesting trying out the sliced beads, and of course chiffon felts in well :o)
I think this piece is probably going to become a bag (suprised?)

And thats pretty much it... apart from my minor hair disaster today! I took my 11 year old daughter to my hairdresser - we were both having a trim & layers. Rachael went first & had a lovely haircut. Unfortunately we spent so much time chatting the hairdresser gave me the same hairdo! So now my long lightly layered hair that hung in a very heavy curtain (all one length apart from the light layering) is now about 4" shorter at the front...to around shoulder length - a `do` that I really do not like! Its fine on many people - but not on me. I`ve been contemplating chopping the whole lot off to collar length for a few weeks... the only thing stopping me is the prospect that if I decide to grow it again I have to go through this awkward length that always takes forever to get past. And now its like it AAAGH. SO do I chop it all off? Or just the 4" at the back so its basically a long bob? Or put it in a ponytail & ignore it for a few months?
