I've been looking back at my very first blog which I started around 8years ago! How much has changed since then??? My style of writing and attitude has been the biggest change and in many ways I miss my naive view of life, the Universe and everything! Some of the descriptive phrases I used though were really quite good and I find it hard to imagine having that headspace again where I could lose myself in a moment and capture it on my blog. Life was easier back then but I've adapted and am moving on.
This brings me to my blog heading. I've been reconnecting to my love of wool. I have quite a few sacks of fleece in storage for when I get around to spinning or felting it all. I've found that since I joined a spinning guild I'm often offered a sack of fibres at hard to resist prices, or in the case of a very dirty Alpaca fleece, completely free!!!
This was my little work area at a country show last year, and my new wheel. I'm spinning Romney fleece, which is soft as air and hopefully just as nice to knit or crochet.
This was at a show near Milland, a very lovely and typically English country village. Can you see all the wonderful fleece spread out to tempt us. My little wheel is at the very back of the tent in the shade :D
