Lost and Found....


I have lost my camera :(
It was the O.H's degree show on Friday night and I remember taking pictures of his display then I don't know where I put it! My bag wasn't big enough to house it so it was separate and now we are separated. Sniff.
It was a lovely Olympus one that we got at a really good price.
I have another older one to use but it is tucked away in a box still somewhere so who knows when we'll find that one!


We have found a kitten!
It was hanging around for a long time on Sunday and later on I saw it being tossed out of someones garden just as a bus went by.
We went out to comfort it and after much debate we have taken her in, fed and watered her and reported her as found to local shelters but no news yet.
She is very cute, very vocal too but too small to be out, she can only be six months at the most.
Rosie of course is not happy and does not want to socialise with anyone except me!

I have been busy dyeing yarn in many colours; oranges, blues, trying for yellow but it seems a bit mellow(!) and greens....hopefully when I find a camera I can post you all some pictures :)

Craft stall in about six weeks and I have so much to do.
The kitchen has arrived and is being fitted next week.
Time is not my friend of late!!!!

Summer Solstice Sunset

Our view over the rooftops from the back bedroom gave host to this fiery night sunset. It was quite spectacular!

Sad to think now though that the nights are gonna be longer and the days will get shorter, and that Christmas is no that far away...maybe I shouldn't have said that out load just yet!

The First of Many...

...yarn dyeing experiements!

From the left over stems of eucalyptus I had from testing out the new eco prints as previously posted about I now have my first samples of dyed yarn.

A couple of lovely shades of burnt oranges on DK Merino yarn, created solely from a eucalyptus dye pot.

What do you think? Would you wear these colours?.....

New Prints

Some quick photos of yesterdays experimenting with eco prints.
I was trying to create new designs to use in my greetings cards collection....
Apologies for the creases and various shades of white due to my camera settings!

Yes, sorry about the delay in getting these photos online!
Can someone please throw me some extra time though, as all of mine keeps getting swallowed up too quickly....

Anyhow, here's a few pic's of the festered silk.
As I said in my previous post the marks hadn't given the depth i'd hoped for but still make for some interesting viewing...

The Result

Well I did it, I opened the jar...

And it smelt terrible!
As you can see above, two months of damp rotting in a jar don't make for a pleasant exit.
Here she is airing away in the wind after a good rinse through

A quick close up of marks made from time in the jar.
I must say I had hoped for more, and now think I should have left it alone to fester a while longer!
I'm gonna post some clear photos of the details tomorrow as the rest of the day was spent decorating again...
