My Dream Studio

Oh, to have a studio......

I have given this a lot of thought.

It will be the size of a soccer pitch.

It will be divided into two parts - one for 'wet' and the other for 'dry' activities

There would be storage space for absolutely EVERYTHING

Worktops will abound, so too tables and chairs - one for every project currently 'on the go'!  There are at least three deep sinks just for dyeing!

Materials will miraculously appear at the merest thought

Any machine I might ever think of needing are there and electricity will be instantly available in every part of the room

Daylight, the perfect lighting, will be available at all times of the day and night - and in every part of the room

Tea and coffee will be on tap!  No need to wait for the kettle to boil.

Tonight's meal will automatically be created by the inbuilt 'fridge and oven without any thought from me

Would you like to join me? 

Unfortunately it is all in my imagination........

Let's Go Green

Dyeing is my business.  I am very aware of the ecological connotations involved, so I try very hard to waste resources as little as possible, and to only use chemicals that won't damage the environment.  Currently there are a few green coloured items in my shop, but also some bits and pieces that are dyed with a deliberate eye to eco friendly!

If you follow my listings you will know that I can't just dye in one colour so that means that even the most 'green' yarn has some other colours too:

Listed here, this mix of threads are of 'eco cotton' they have been manufactured in a considerate manner and I try to continue that theme.   See, I told you there would be another colour!

Spring greens are the order of the day here, but once again you will find that there are other colours, including gray.  

This one is a lot brighter, although still Spring Greens!  You'll find it here, and the other pictures will show you more of the yellow!  There are several other items that are green, and also lots of items that are anything but a green colour!  So why not pop along and have a !
