1. Mum and I had another lovely day at Emu Plains Market last weekend, I had lots of dangling things in my stall this time, I thought it looked pretty all flapping in the breeze.
2. I made some crochet flower trim, I think I will try this in a finer thread next time as this one has turned out fairly chunky, I wonder if it will fall apart if I cut it into smaller lengths.
3. Pom-poms were being made the other night to decorate a creative swap I am taking part in over on Instagram. I love how this variegated wool made them look all speckled, a little bit like fireworks. I think I will make some big ones of these to decorate my shop :)
4.....And here are my swap presents all wrapped and ready to send, I have felt a little bit of pressure to make my parcels look pretty as there is a very high standard of wrapping going on in this swap!! I don't want to be the one who disappoints her recipient!
My new wool studio is coming along nicely, the plaster walls are going up tomorrow I think, so I will do a post on the weekend and show you all the progress, it is exciting! I have just placed an order for some new yarns for the shop in anticipation of all the extra space, I have over 50 colours of Cascade 220 Superwash coming next week and some lovely painted cottons too, looking forward to setting everything up! Next on the wishlist are some Noro yarns and some new Debbie Bliss too, hope the bank balance stretches that far! :)
And I have finally conquered my newsletter fear, I wasn't happy with my first go at making my newsletter, so ditched it and redid the tutorials and had another go, and I think this one is a lot better, so will be sending it out soon! :)
What have you been up to this week?
