A half-term visit from my primary school age great-nieces, who are interested in crafts. Katy tried my spinning wheel, and produced some very creditable first-attempt art yarn.
Then an improvised warp was arranged on an embroidery frame, and she set about weaving -
Julia selected colours from some of my handspun, and another warp was quickly improvised on a soft-back book -
Their concentration and patience was amazing, and both finished small pieces. This is Katy's finished hairband, made with her own first handspun -
She may have a spinning wheel on her Christmas wish list!
