Waiting again...

Well this morning I was all set to work on a new nuno wrap.  Over the weekend I dyed an Indian silk scarf (HUGE one) and some silk hankies ready for this.  I even got so far as pulling my fibres ready to start, only to find a distinct lack of some of the blues I was planning to use!  Luckily I already have them on order from Wingham Wool (just got an email to say they are posted - yay) so I just have to wait now...


I'm hoping to add some nice dyed silk caps & hankies to my Folksy shop soon (of course I've got to actually get round to dyeing them first lol).  I've been really rubbish at listing stuff in my shops since Christmas.. must do better.

Anyway with my days plans scuppered, I decided to work on some finishing touches instead.  Felted a lovely blue/green piece with some of the aforementioned silk hankies & some firestar fibre sprinkled between the merino & silk.  I'm planning some brooches made from this.. if they work like Im picturing they should be nice :)

And a couple of big blousy flowers (the one on the left is pretty massive :)

I cant believe we are heading into another school holiday... already!  It doesnt seem 5 mninutes since the kids went back and they break for half-term on Thursday this week. 

Heres hoping my fibre gets here by Thursday so I can get this wrap out of my system before the kids break up.

It's so hard to be patient for supplies, (I'm waiting on several silk fabrics ), when you have the project in your head and ready to go . Lovely flowers .

Isn't that just so frustrating when you get a huge creative urge and then find you dont have everything to hand!! I have heard quite a bit about folksy lately & am considering giving it a try. i shall have to take a peep. OOh felted brooches, yum. Love the big flower it reminds me of a big peony i used to have in the garden x
