|Elmtree's Handspun Art Yarn.|
Phew, what a job, but one I did with a big smile on my face!
Today, before we went for our Saturday morning coffee, we dropped this lot off at the shop ("Gather" in Napier) and the shop lady loved it. Now we'll see how it goes!
Here they are on the shops' blog .Super exciting!
The next 5 consecutive days it got another layer of only danish oil rubbed in.
It is done!!
Although my love didn't really like the blond finish at first, it is growing on him, and he now thinks it is alright.
I think it is perfect. Just how I pictured this room in my head for the last year.
Thank You Darling! You are a D.I.Y. Meister!!
|Oak cabinet Before.|
But full of scratches and a cheap particle-board backing. Dark too.
|Oak cabinet After.|
Now it is worthy of being called shabby chique.
Come into my room, little cabinet...
|Pinks, red and white.|
They look pretty spiffy in their wrappers I think.
|Natural colours with Gottland curls.|
This yarn has long curls of Gottland wool spun into it. Quite time consuming to spin, but when you knit it up, the curls will stick randomly out of the garment or scarf. It will make it look wild and feral. I think the shop keeper might keep this one for herself, she really liked it.
And she reckoned I should keep going...
But I might have a little break. And decorate my room first.
|Multicoloured art yarn spun wiggly with loads of bits in it.|
Well, she was the one to teach me how to spin in the first place, so very fitting!
