Well iv finally got to play with my new toy........ Drum carder! Up to now iv only had time to do four batts and nothing else! Unfortunately its been a bit of a poorly week for all my family and excitement with my friend announcing her wedding for May (Loads of wedding planning obviously!). My daughters going to be bridesmaid. I'm more excited that she is!
Of cause I had to try a rainbow one, it wouldn't be me if I didn't!. The blue and purple one has silk waste in it and the rest are just Merino. I must admit I'm loving it!! Defiantly a wonderful Christmas and Birthday present..... Thank you hubby xx
They have all been listed on Etsy as iv has a few people asking when there going to be available for buying.
I have a weekend of dying silk organza, chiffon and ponga for my NEC piece. Its pretty much designed. Just a few things to tweak and then loads of sampling needs to be done. This machine embroidery is rather nerve racking, but my tutor is giving me a lot of support. Though I'm not sure whether shes visualising it in the same way as i am. Iv had a lot of "You cant do it like that" and "that wont work". I think I'm to used to felting.
