It’s been a busy week since Woolfest last weekend, I can’t believe we have done so much in a week. Woolfest was amazing, as always. I learned something new, Tunisian crochet, and I also learned you can use the drink Kool Aid to dye yarn. I must have a go at this sometime soon.
Note to self……. gather some fleece when out walking!
The weather has been good recently so we have been out walking, the problem is everyone else has had the same idea, Castlerigg stone circle looked like a bus trip had arrived.
Today we did some proper fell walking, there are places you can escape the tourists and have the Fells to yourself. Blake Fell is one of my favourite walks, there are steep climbs but they are interspersed with easier stretches to get the breath back, and the views of the Western Fells can’t be beaten in my book. Today was a sunny but breezy, the air seemed filled with the song of a multitude of sky larks, do they ever shut up I wonder.
It hasn’t all been play though, I have been working too, my handpainted porcelain is still selling as fast as I can paint it, but you have seen that already. I’ve been playing with a new line of glass too, different COE, and I’ve some silver clay jewellery in the kiln right now so hopefully I will have something new to show you soon.
Oh, I’ve made some glass fish too, will show you on Wednesday………
