I'm already dyeing and preparing yarn for the next big project which I plan to be a coat. I am thinking flame colours plus slate blue/grey/slate greens......here is some carded fleece ready to spin. I thought the colours were reflected in these two beautiful scenes in our local park. I am also working away on a scarf, which I plan to sell. I am using more or less the same colours as my jacket - as I love them, and they are always very popular! I am also in the process of trying to be more proficient in the use of social media etc. With the help of my grandson Jack, of J C Designs, I am opening a new website and shall concentrate on my dyed yarns and woven pieces. The address is: fibrefrenzi.weebly.com I love the name and the domain is free!! I also have a fibrefrenzi Facebook now, and have been absolutely staggered how many people it has reached within a few days. I think I shall probably write this blog on a weekly basis and put more into the page than before. Thanks for reading this....and have a good day!

Im hoping to change my computer next week. This should mean I shall be back on a roll to regular blogging, although it may take me a few days to learn the ropes of new technology! I do now have two Facebook pages....one is in the name of Fibrefrenzi which I plan to devote to my passion of textiles and my new found love of weaving

There's usually a little ginger chap hanging around to help me in my creative pursuits! As you can see, he is very lively and being extremely helpful! Now I have completed my first jacket I am thinking ahead......first of all I am going to make a couple scarves with silk warp - these will be for selling. Then I think I shall try a coat and a jacket of reds/oranges to wear in the winter.... I'm still having problems with my computer - so if there is a lull in my blogging, it is because I am struggling!! (Am now thinking I shall need to get a new Apple......)

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for ages. There has been a fault on my computer and I couldn't work out how to write a new post. Think it has now been sorted, but computer is getting rather old (like me!!) and I fear it is beginning to wear out (unlike me.......?) In recent weeks I have had another horrible flu episode - then went to Italy - and in the meantime I kept on spinning and weaving....and today I managed to make a very simple jacket. Im so pleased with it because it is very light and comfortable to wear. Needless to say - I am now inspired to get on with a new project........probably a scarf or wrap but I have ideas simmering at the back of my head to make a gorgeous long coat. Watch this space - and I hope it won't be long before I write my next post!
