Phew just finshed ironing all the wraps, scarves and quilts. Only took me 2.5 hours groan. Everything is ready to be loaded into the car tonight for setting up at Erddig tomorrow.
Fingers crossed it will be a good show
This is not a very good picture as the lighting was not too good.
2 scarves are woven and off the loom but I won't finish the third one till next week now

I have been working in the garden this afternoon and took up some black plastic that we put on the veggie garden over winter to act as a mulch and, warm the soil up quicker this time of year. Under the plastic I found these.

Put the plastic back down and the runner beans will have to sown elsewhere

What a twit

Needed to pay a check into the bank and get some shopping. Decided to cycle into Llangollen and as I was sorting out things decided I didn't need my purse. Everything could go into my pockets. Got 3/4 of the way there and realised I had left the cheque at home DUH.
Misty and pretty cold on the way in but when I got home to lovely sunshine. The picture is of the Dee valley from just off the A5

You can see how misty the valley is
All 3 merino wraps are off the loom. When they are finished I will post pics here and on craft pimp.
Baby loom is being set up for some merino scarves in a mixture of periwinkle blue, lovely soft pale green and a silver grey
Have a great Easter everyone x

Well back from a so so weekend in Kent.
The fabric went off to the fashion student on Saturday. Hopefully he will like it.
One silk scarf off the loom. Pic will uploaded when it is ironed. 2 more silk wraps to weave then will be setting up the loom for merino scarves.
