I had the video all ready, and should have gone live yesterday, but I got distracted by a Harry Potter party for a group of giggly girls. There was lots of Pizza, and sweets such as Bertie bots every flavour beans, forbidden forest mushrooms, and fizzy basilisks.
I have been creating and photographing lots, and have not yet managed to get up to my pottery roof, so that remains leaky, and my electrician has yet to return for the final instalment of that particular story, so my pots remain unfired.
I have added some of my more crazy looking wool to Etsy, I have had lots of fun with colour this year as you can see, I tend to give in to using all the colours in my dye bath, its soooo much fun, i just love playing with the colours. I am hoping to do some more natural dye experiments next year, but I will be doing this alongside the regular dying, as this caused me a lot of stress last time.
As you know I have a tendency to revert to mini books, and they were very popular christmas presents last year so I'm making lots more this year. I have come up with a new binding system, and I'm testing it out on a pretty princess mini that is currently on my worktable. I won't waffle on at length here about, stack the deck, or hidden hinge bindings, as crafters interested in wool, and pottery will be saying "WHAT!!!??????" so I'll just say this is different, and when I have it fully tested I will do a you tube video on it.
in the meantime, take a look at the new video available via the Freebies page.
