Mulberry tree next door

To my surprise & delight there lives a beautiful mulberry tree right next door to me. Unfortunately I have discovered this rather late in the season and after a few weeks of horrid weather, but I managed to pick a few over ripe berries & have boiled them up to extract some colour. Today I will add some silk tops (only fitting I think since silk worms eat the leaves of the mulberry to make the silk) Had also thought I may just cultivate some worms of my own on the leaves to see what happens.  Since the tree is in my neighbours garden I have added his web site to my links but if you are reading this now click here www.boylesblog.co.uk to take you to his site, he even wrote a special poem for the Noughtists.

Knitted bunting

Whenever I attend a craft show I hang my bunting around my table, it always gets attention and so now I’m preparing to make loads more to hire out. I can do wedding bunting , baby shower/christening bunting in blues/pinks, birthday bunting and every day bunting just for the joy of it. There seems to be a pink theme to this string, most of which is knitted tho some is crocheted.

William the sheep has been adopted

The little sheep that I needle felted has gone to a new home. I’m rather sad but I can’t keep everything I make. It has encouraged me to make some more, maybe I’ll get quicker at making them. I have some lovely Gotland fleece which I’m sure will make a fab sheep although the wool is very different to the Shetland, it is much silkier. If you didn’t see William check out my earlier posts!
