Thaw

So today it's windy and rainy; the snow has transformed into melt water. In a room with a log burner is the best place to be, though I do have to fight two canines to find some heat. 
I am packaging up new stock before carding fibre ready for spinning tomorrow, all in preparation for 16th March. I will have a stall at the first ever Edinburgh Yarn Festival  and I think it's going to be wonderful! There's a great range of dyers, spinners and makers taking part, plus an onsite cafe for sustenance.


Thursday evening was spent at Borders Textile Towerhouse as we gathered to stitch more Indian inspired squares. I demonstrated how to attach shisha mirrors but it's fair to say that neither I nor my willing group are naturals at this...there was much quiet cursing as mirrors slipped from under the holding stitches. Nonetheless they have already produced some lovely happy work.

So, just like when I tried it, I put on a button instead! Damn tricky!
