I am very glad this week is over. I am working more than usual at the moment and that involves getting up early ( between 5.00 and 6.00 PM) which makes me tired for the rest of the day.
But I am glad of the extra money of course!
Anyway, in between I sewed some more " confetti" blocks. I like very much sewing those. It is fun mixing scraps and seeing the effect. As usual I try adding some "difficult" fabrics to make it more interesting.
Yesterday I bought a new cutting mat, so the 40 blocks left to sew should go in a breeze!
Of course I spun some more yarn too. This skein is a 3-ply of Blue-faced Leicester mixed with some local breed and bits of colour wool. The BFL makes it very soft and fluffy. I have to fondle it every time I walk by!
And that is what I am spinning now. The roving was given to me by Selana (thanks a lot again!).
It is merino (I think) and I am trying to spin wool for socks out of it. It feels very soft and it easy to spin.
I can´t wait to finish it.
But at the week-end I plan to dye some yarn and cook some strawberry jam so I don´t know how far I will come.
I wish you a wonderful week-end too with nice weather (that we are having at the moment).
What a Sweet Retreat!
