We have been working hard, making items for the market on Saturday. Yesterday I skeined quite a few natural colored Shetland yarns from our sheep.
I also skeined our CVM yarn and then dyed them. I used Greener Shades Amazon Green and River Blue dyes. Today the dye water had cooled and I rinsed them. Now they are drying.
Today I also needle felted the two mioget Shetland felted fleece rugs I made on Tuesday.
Here is one of the rugs done.
I have two other rugs I previously felted. This is Walda’s black Shetland felted fleece.
And this is Moll’s Gotland-cross felted fleece.
I also made a couple of my funky felted scarves with the leftover fibers. Here is one of them drying.
Tom has been busy all week making leather purses and wallets.
And this evening I made essential oil bath bombs.
Here are the oils I used.
So once again I am exhausted. And we have a lot more to do tomorrow to get ready. Hopefully with all of this effort we will have a successful market.
