We have quite a stash of rovings in our wool room and Jen has been enjoying spinning up yarns over the last few weeks and she has asked to list them in our family Etsy shop, I think they really turned out beautiful. The first is a Wensleydale single ply, the second a Merino and Tencel and the third a BFL Tussah Silk.

This is the beautiful pincushion that I received from my swap partner in Shannon’s Pincushion swap, I love it!

The other day, a parcel arrived just for me at the post office. I had no idea what it was, I opened it and oh my goodness! I was so delighted with what I discovered inside the beautiful packaging. I found a gorgeous crochet bag, so soft and wonderful and did I mention I love the colour red! It was sent to me by a lovely woman in Texas also called Linda. I really adore this gift Linda, I am very grateful, you are so kind to make me this item and to have sent it all the way to South Africa and thank you so much for the lovely note too:)

    OH how lovely the yarn is. I really like the last one. It makes me think of being in an evergreen forest. My kids thought the first one looked like ocean waves and the second pink sea shells.

    Oh, the luscious color of that yarn. And Jen did it. I’ve been listening to Rachel’s howls as she learns. I think I will be audience for this skill. but the color- ah the soft variegations. And don’t you just adore surprises like this in the mail? Wonderful. Just wonderful.
