So does anyone know WHY I wanted a spinning wheel in the first place? No? Well that's okay, don't fret about not knowing that my deepest darkest spinning desire is to learn to spin coiled yarn, something that is practically impossible to do with a spindle (at least for me).
To that end, you'd think I'd own Pluckyfluff, the book, but NOoooooo, I've been denying myself trying to get my singles even enough to ply together, a sad, and I'm afraid, rather hopeless goal. So - no Pluckyfluff and certailny no Intertwined (the new book).
But anyway, I didn't start writing this to moan and groan about my poor spinning, I started this post to tell you that I WON SOMETHING (I NEVER win anything)!!! And not just any something, wait, that sounds weird, but a really AMAZING something from a really cool blog!!!
Be still my heart. I have lusted for this new book and for her original book Pluckyfluff since I first got my spindle, but I was determined to learn how to spin evenly before I got into the cool stuff I REALLY want to do. NOW, sinceI didn't go out and buy the book to twmpt myself - I don't have to wait! Thank you Stef, you MADE my
day week month!
So Craftside is very cool blog about all sorts of crafts. Also, a very dangerous blog as since I've been over there, I've spent a
freakin fortune some money on new craft goodies. Todays post is about a book and technique. The book: Mixed Emulsions, Altered Art Techniques for Photographic Imagery by Angela Cartwright. Stef tried the technique on a photo of a shamrock and she tells you how to do it step by step. Very cool indeed. Don't wait, go over there and learn how to spend more money of craft supplies create cool craft things! Craftside. Go. Now! You'll love it!
