A few days ago I got some rather exciting news, I mentioned it on Twitter, and I mentioned it in my Ravelry group but I completely forgot to talk about it here.

I'm going to be a stall holder at Wonderwool, if you fancy making the trip to Wales at the end of April I'd love to say hello to some of you. It's on the 28th-29th April, and is at the Royal Welsh show ground in Builth Wells.
It will be my first big show as a stall holder, I've been a few times as a visitor, and it's a fantastic place to go and see the best of the British fibre industry. I'm already making plans for what the stall will look like, and I've started carding fibre and prepping roving. It's very much a little and often thing, too much in one day and my body starts to complain a little, there's only so long you can turn a carder handle for before your arm starts to feel like it's dropping off! The big dream is to end up with an electric carder, but for now it's muscle power only.

Barn progress

The barn is becoming less like a barn, and looking more and more like somewhere someone can live there. The walls are now insulated, and the upstairs is plastered. Things like the kitchen and bathroom fittings are all in storage, ready for installation. This last part seems to be taking forever, but it will all get done eventually!


I'm no starting to have to make decisions about things tiles, which is driving me a bit potty, I'd almost like to wave a magic wand and it be all decided, but this will be the last time I can make these decisions so they need to be right!



Apologies if this is a bit incoherent, everyone is trying to talk to me, and I need to go and make a decision about door handles...
