January 2011

Here we are in a new year and I have a new web site which I promise to keep up to date! That is one of my New Year resolutions – let's see how long I can keep this one.

Anyway, this is my first blog and as it is at the beginning of a new year it would seem appropriate to tell you about 2010.

In January I started spinning having been inspired by my friend Joanne in Australia. What a joy spinning is although I am still working on my technique!

I also visited a lot of woolly shows this year – what a great new world.

The main event of the year had to be Fashion Sans Frontiéres. After a lot of hard work the evening turned out to be quite spectacular.

In September Michael and went on our annual  trip to Australia. This year we did a house swap and joy of joys there were two alpacas living next door. I had packed my spinning wheel – of course! – so I had great fun spinning their fleece. 

As I write this Christmas has come and gone for another year and I am looking forward to making more pots and baskets (from wool naturally!) and also look forward to seeing many of you at the shows this year.

In the meantime Happy New Year and keep stitching, knitting or what ever you like to do with your hands!

    Hello, I LOVE your swirl pots but I am having a very hard time understanding the directions!.  I have crafted many many clothline pots, and sold lots of them, can't think why I am having problems with the swirl technique!
    In the book it shows wraping illustration  from the left and wraping from the right. Do you mean you change directions when you attach the new color and begin the base color again then you wrap from the left?
    Cutting the fabric at an angle at both the beginning and again at the end, do you mean the angle is a right angle at the begging and a left angle at the end?. I am having a hard time understanding this, and attaching it to the base fabric. 
    When do you cut the base fabric?
    Do you have line drawings of your technique, or is there a  video available for sale?
    I hope I am making sense?
    Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give to me.
