A Saturday Afternoon.

Thankfully not our dinner. Steaming up some Barrier Reef batts for Dale, and a jumper from the op shop.

I lay stuff on my stainless steel bench in the shed and apply the dye randomly.

Layers of batt and old blanket.

This is a new book by Jan Messant. It's lovely and very inspirational. Highly recommend it. It's not really a 'how to' book but more a visual feast. It's available from The Thread Studio.

Maybe another go at making books? Oh- washed my phone today in the machine. Realized that all my numbers were in it- oops.


  1. excellent to see you are working while I am holidaying but I have been dry felting (yuck you say) with wool on bottom layer and slushie on top - very nice - and stitchy on top of course. Hope your phone dries out and yes Jan Messent book is very very inspirational. We have been walking around the lagoon and spotted a white heron Dale

  2. Oh dear, I hope you can retrieve your numbers. I love the colours of the barrier reef dyeing you have been doing. Cheers, Robin
