Out with the old..

Collecting scrap fibre from my 'compost bin' and sorting all the compacted tops from my stash..

Looks quite small in the photo but it was a good pile :)
after the first pass through the carder..
on the drum..
off the drum..
3 distinctly different batts
3 nice fat happy batts
I LOVE working like this.. just grabbing whichever colour comes to hand next and adding it in.. I end up putting colours together that I just wouldn't of done otherwise.  It's an exhilarating way to work!

It does build up Els :) I have a wire waste paper bin (my 'compost bin') behind the door and all scraps go in till it's full x

You won't have to wait long Ali :) That's in the next post x
