Once again I got behind on this blog. This time I had a fair excuse though. I ended up with pneumonia. We went to Sydney to visit friends and family and Ruth's step father had just been diagnosed with pneumonia and her nephew had been to Emergency for croup the night before we got there.

Nephew is 3 and was very generous in sharing his germs. It was great to see people but by the time we drove home I had a really bad sore throat and then we both got really sick. Not much you can do for a virus so we kept up fluids and took paracetamol for the fever and then my chest started crackling and my asthma was really bad.

Thankfully the antibiotics have done their job and the neck injury I picked up while coughing is finally healing now too.

Hopefully I'll be back to posting again. Got a few finished products to share

work in progress shots

We've been busy working on a few projects of late. I'll have more photos once these are finished and have been given to their new owners.
Here's a sneak peak

2013 Heritage Wool and Natural Fibre Muster Part 2

Part one can be found here


Such pretty yarn

Felted fire

Felts and dyes




Gorgeous fibre

Cute placemat



These were all fantastic. Ruth ended up buying one

So much pretty


So many things we wanted but couldn't afford


We left the Arts Centre and walked over to the Court House where the rest of the stalls were.

Outside the Court House

I ended up spending ages feeling these Artisan Lace yarns. So soft and amazing colours. I wanted to use them for embroidery. I ended up narrowing it down to the purple and the peacock green/blue. I went away for a while to look at other stuff as I'd just bought some Woolganic from them but ended up coming back and grabbing the green/blue one. It's stunning. Not sure what exactly I'll embroider yet but I think it will be on the back of a black hoodie.


This stall had the most amazing felted alpaca hats. I fell in love with the grey one. The prices were good but I just couldn't afford it.

Here it is. Isn't it pretty. I also love the little alpacas


And here is our spoils. From top left we have a new cable for Ruth's interchangeable set as the old one broke. A gorgeous yarn by"", 8 balls of Woolganic wool. It's so soft and pretty.
Second Row: The peacock blue lace weight yarn, a bag of white corn silk fibre, a lovely nostepinne that looks like a beater's bat from Harry Potter.
Bottom row: black, purple and white Merino/Silk fibre, a bunch of business cards and some needle felting needles.

I did enjoy the show a lot and will try and get there again soon. I ended up with my health crashing badly after walking around for so long. Still managed to get to Orange and get some shopping done.
