Im still struggling with my new technical set up.....but I persevere, and hopefully shall soon crack it!  In between stretching my brain power with digital marvels, I continue to spin, dye and weave.  It seems that as far as I make a scarf, I sell one, so, alas I never build up a stock!!  But it does give me a buzz when I sell, and it pushes me on to make more.  I have just started a new jacket.  My plan is to make a loose fitting jacket  - it will be some time before it is finished but here is a picture of the early stages.  In the UK we are also struggling to reach Spring/Summer.  Today has been freezing and apparently in some places there have been blizzards...hey ho!

Yaay!!.........I've finally managed (with the help of my daughter) to get back into my blogger account.  Honestly, all this technology is pretty brain numbing....but, never mind, I am persevering.  I needed to change my phone because I ran out of storage and couldn't take anymore photos.  Because of all the seems to me that everything else is affected.   Hopefully things will begin to settle here goes....I have just had a fabulous few days in the Lake District.  It is such a beautiful area and of course, lots of sheep and woollen mills.  I was very inspired and even managed to buy myself a gorgeous spinning wheel.  I love it - and it now means I have a spare one which will be really useful for teaching ( I have convinced myself, and the next thing will be that I shall convince myself I must have another weaving loom!)  Anyway, Im now back home and have been enjoying some glorious early summer weather on the beach. Have a good week x

I am having technical problems with my phone and have been unable to take any photos of my latest textiles.  I am waiting for the new phone to arrive, so hopefully by next week I shall be back in action.  I was able to take these pictures earlier in the week, and thought I would share the springtime with you.......everything is coming to life and is looking so beautiful.....inspiration is everywhere!!  This week I travel up to the Lake District to stay with a very textiley friend....she has an online business -www.  Take a look - her things are fabulous! Meanwhile - enjoy your week x
