after a very sloooow few months i am finally getting some creative momentum back.  we had a very quiet weekend just pottering around not doing much at all, recovering from friday's excitement of my new nephew arriving (he is the tiniest, sweetest little bundle)
 then this evening i had a sudden urge to DO something......

so most of my extensive avocado pit collection went into a dyeing pot with some water to keep it company and has been seething happily for the last few hours.  a short time ago i added some cotton sheeting concertina folded and rubber banded to see what will will happen. i am hoping for he rosy pinks that have been hinted at in various outposts of the intertubes

and then i thought i would have another go at the technique i tried for the challenge piece and so far this is the result.
my resolve not to use fusible web has been tested as i found the can of spray adhesive is actually sealer and not suitable at all. so the sticking down but may have to wait -  using too much fusible web gummed up the machine needle and caused many swears....

and finally Kind Dog's second sock is up to the turning of the heel part so he may get to wear his first pair of handknitted socks before winter - yay me :)
and it also looks as though i just might have my blogging mojo back....
