Day 2 of the school holidays

Today I thought there was quiet and occupied playing in the lounge.  Only when I heard “boing!” … “oops” did I discover that I was now short of one retractable tape measure:


My son and I have carded about half of the wool we dyed yesterday.  So far we have three different coloured batts.  My son also did a small amount of spinning on the spindle.  So far he’s finding “spin, park and draft” to be a successful way to proceed.

batts and spinning

I thoroughly enjoyed making the batts from the different coloured fibres we randomly dyed yesterday – so I think I’ll be using this method for my own projects in the future.
