alternatively.....

i could felt some of that delicious roving like this.......
susan was right in her comment - i did give her my spinning wheel thinking that my dodgy back wouldn't allow me to spin again. but my Mother gave me her lovely sheridan wheel last winter and i felt the spinning addiction kick in. i just have to be careful not to do too much as spinning and dodgy back do not mix.

i spent an afternoon with dijanne yesterday at her second 'wonga day' - read cups of tea, careful examining of quilts, knitting and coming away with the stunning traveller's blanket, a piece of hand dyed muslin and dijanne's second book of alternatives to stippling. and some extra goodies including a new felting technique using the washing machine. which of course i tried out as soon as i could and it works wonderfully.

i see more roving in my future.....

How lovely! You sound as if you had a lovely time. How does the felting in the washing machine work please?
