The Autumn Cometh
This weekend I could definitely feel the chill in the air and last night it was cold! It was the first night I had to light the fire, instead of wanting the cosiness of it lit. I suppose my news today is that I have my Etsy site up and running! It feels a bit like giving birth, except I haven't nosy nurses poking at my girly bits and I am not starving! But my baby is up and running and now it is time to start SELLING! Plenty more will be added in the coming weeks.
More nuno felted silk/merino
scarves this week
I am going to be working on scarves this week as the hats and scarves have sold the best. Lots of purple and gold for our Huskies! I have rovings that are dyed, dried, and ready to go, so I need to make lots of pre-felt pieces to add into the designs and get some chiffon dyed up so it is ready to go on Tuesday. Chiffon is dry in minutes, so I need to dry my purples and greens and blues so I can get ready to lay down some fibre! I have the week to complete scarves and then I must get onto some slipper samples. The resist felting is going really well, but I think the slippers will be more challenging. And hats! More hats must be felted. Eek, I haven't enough time to really get at all the projects I need to! If felted a lovely dark blue/purple hat for myself and I need a new scarf to go with it :) When I say NEED, you know what I mean....
It seems like I am inundated with forms to fill out lately. Paperwork for citizenship, kids, Scouts, jobs. When I get through this next bit I need to get on to Halloween. We pulled everything out of the attic, but with all the interruptions today, I didn't get a thing put up. So the house must transform. At least I will have a great excuse for leaving the dusting for the next few weeks!!
