A gift

Merino/Tencel Fibre braid hand-dyed by Natalie Fergie

I received a mystery parcel on Christmas Eve. A blue bag, from The Yarn Yard. Nothing I had purchased… it was marked not to be opened until Christmas and I was a good girl and I waited.

Inside was this braid  of Merino/Silk  fibre in a wondrous dye job. Natalie does it again!

The photo needs to be re-taken as it fails to do the colour justice. Just think “stormy winter Orkney sunset” and you’ll get the idea. It is just beautiful!

But who sent it?

Whoever you are – thank you very much indeed. You are as extravagant as you are thoughtful. This gift is very much appreciated. If you want to make yourself known so that I can say my thanks properly, you clearly already know how to reach me. If you want this to stay a secret, that’s OK too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I shall start to spin this soon, but not just yet as I have work to do on my wheel (fitting the Jumbo flyer)

Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM

    Yep – I’ll be working on improving the appearance of the navigation links, but perhaps not tonight.
