Spinning Wheel

Woohoo! Jay got me a spinning wheel today. I have been borrowing a friends and am so happy to have my own. I still have no real idea with it LOL! but I will get the hang of it eventually. Such a bargain too just $65 at the op shop.

I also got a delivery from Winterwood today. Some lovely dyed mohair, muslin,dyes, hand dyed felt piece,some 8ply rainbow wool, cane hoop, some tubing and a few other tid bits. So I am on
such a craft high atm.

I have quite a few works in progress. I have a knitted rainbow horse to sew and stuff, I am nearly finished a knitted rabbit, I have 4 standing dolls cut out and ready to make, aswell as a felt dolphin and some ducks. I need to make Lauras Steiner doll for her birthday and Scarlett needs some new soakers as she is growing out of all her old ones. So much to do and so little time.

Getting the hang of it

I think I am getting the hang of it. LOL!
I started this Blog mostly to put up my craft projects and also brag a little about my family.
I am a very proud mummy to 4 beautiful girls aged 7, nearly 3, heading towards 5 and 1 and I have a wonderful partner .
I love all sorts of craft. I knit, try to crochet, wet and dry felt, learning to spin, needlework, card making, whatever I can get my hands on really.
I also work 2 days a week as a RN. Busy, busy, busy!!!
So hard to find the time for my crafts. I usually do a little each night when the girls have gone to bed. I have just taken over running the craft group at DD1's school on Wednesday too.
Computer time is starting to eat into my craft time though with so many great sites out there.
I need to figure out how to have all the sites displayed. Off to have another go at sorting out my page.
