Lots more listings

Here are a few new listings of Quintettes. As always they are in short supply – the whole essence of the Serendipity range is that they are dyed in small quantities – and are original colour combinations. The link will take you to another page where you can buy or find out more. Each pack will have a small surprise included – the ones that were sent yesterday had one too……

Knit one, Stitch one, or Dye one

An unusual offer today!

This Rowan yarn is now discontinued. It’s a shame because it means the end of a range of beautiful dyed tubular yarn as far as I’m concerned. It was intended for knitting (and they create a beautiful fabric) – but the yarn is also ideal for textile mixed media – and also for stuffing to transform into ‘jewellery’, cords, etc. I have 5 skeins of silver left. Once they are gone – that’s it!

Each skein 25g - 57m

Each skein 25g – 57m

It dyes beautifully using Procion dyes – giving you the colour of your dye with flashes of silver. The only reason I am offering these is that I can no longer count it as a repeatable line.

Each skein is £7.50 including post and packing to the UK. If you buy more than one I will refund the extra postage to your paypal account.

This link will take you to PayPal where you can pay using a debit or credit card – even if you don’t have an account.

Ouch and carry on!

The New Year has started with a few leaps and ‘bumps’, but the main thing is to carry on regardless!

While not feeling 100% I have been able to crochet an odd line or two for a throw which was intended to be for my own use. However, a certain little grandson has fallen in love with the colours – so guess where it will be going…….?


I followed a pattern, but have had fun extending the colours and moving them around to suit my own satisfaction. The weaving in of the ends will be fun! That’s my next task – and then on to the border.

Did you know that just 15 minutes of creativity a day can do a lot to spark your enthusiasm and inspiration. The important thing is to DO something. It doesn’t have to be part of your intended life’s work – just something that stimulates those creative juices in some way. Several of us have committed to this in 2015 and it isn’t too late to join us. If you would like more information please complete the correct parts of the form below.

I am delighted to say that I have managed to find a suitable local venue for a small series of Embellisher workshops. More details will follow soon, and the best news is that you don’t need to transport or even own your machine as I have some that you can borrow.

The even better news is that I can probably do the basics of dyeing at the same venue! That will mean that there will be even more fun and games to be had. I’m planning a series of workshops that will result in enough colours for Joseph’s amazing coat!

Watch this space if you are interested in either or both of the above – or if you are interested in joining in dyeing via an online session please complete the correct part of form below..

15 minutes?

How are you getting on with your 15 minutes? A success? Have you managed the first week? Well, life does get in the way – we have to make it a habit.

Today I’ve posted about a recent book purchase. I thought you might like the link. It’s a silly book – but it might help to boost your creativity. Follow this link to read more.
