...pootling on....

...with the little houses....

...adding more details....

..and generally making them feel more like "home" :-)




I've also been very VERY busy dyeing loads of threads...

...and had been hoping to get some up to show by now...

..but skeining, tagging and bagging has taken longer than I expected...

...so all I can show you at the minute is this picture...



..which is destined to be a new header somewhere else (hopefully VERY SOON!!!)

Boy!...do I need 72 hours in a day right now....:-o

This is a sweet little house. How big is it? I'm very impressed that you dye your own threads! I understand the wanting 72 hours in a day. Oh, the things we could do!

It's about 9 inches tall by 3 inches wide....and watch this space for hand-dyed threads....although they're better for stitching than inkle weaving!

Maybe we could get up a petition for a longer day for crafters :-)

A cosy home! It should look too cute to have a number of them put up in a row on the sofa.

...I'm working on a row of them Eva! :-)

Your textile house is lovely. The sort of house I'd like to live in, with window boxes full of beautiful flowers and herbs. I love hand dyed threads and will keep an eye out for yours. Where's the petition? I wanna sign it!

I love the flowers along the bottom of the windows! Makes it look like spring. And the threads look gorgeous too. You have been a very busy girl!
