Alive and crafting

Garden pics...... Before and after landscaping.

It was a long job but well worth the wait.
I have been busy replanting the garden and holidaying in Malta so have not kept up with my blog!!!!
I have however also been busy with various craft pursuits. I attended another willow weaving workshop and this time I made a willow ball! Photos to follow.
I have also bought an old Ashford spinning wheel. I am very new to spinning and will need a great deal of practice and patience before I produce any useful yarn! Its very much like patting your head and rubbing your tummy!!!
I have bought myself a bike to keep me fit! Everyone says you never forget how to ride a bike but I have the bruises to prove them wrong! Can anyone explain why I now have 18 gears when 3 was always quite satisfactory? More practice required again!
Last Saturday I went to the East Sussex Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers exhibition. It was a wonderful display and I bought lots of fleece for my new hobby. I also attended a nuno felting demo and would love to have a go at that as well. So many crafts, so little time!
Must try to keep up with the blog as it helps to concentrate the mind!
