I love making things. Fabric, yarn, fibre, paper, paint and print are my tools of choice. The necessities of life generally manage to get in the way of my need to create , so it all tends to get a bit erratic. Exactly as the blog title suggests.

Here is my attempt to organise things and keep a record of my efforts.

My little Folksy shop is taking a holiday for a while but I hope to re-open soon and sell things that I have made for the sheer pleasure, but are surplus to my needs.

All the best plans of....

a novice dyer, went a bit awry.

Something happened between the idea

and the execution, of a grand plan to create a woolly homage the The Great Ocean Walk.

Never mind. It was only a second attempt. There must be a simple explanation.

I am reminded of my own personal mantra. I never tire of telling it others.
"If it is easy, it is not worth doing."

After all, my Dad who worked with textiles for his entire life, spent the first three months of his career washing dye pots out. It was many months later that he was allowed into the laboratory to work out recipes for colours, so I am not likely to achieve great things in one day.

It would have been nice to create something other than murky grey though!

  1. Now, I don't actually see murky grey there, I see some rather interesting scottish walking days.. across the heather etc.etc.

    hugs and tomorrow will be another dye...
