I've finished these felted wool cloche hats with old lace,tweed flowers,vintage costume jewellery and shoe buckles.I love making them,searching junk shops,markets and charity shops for the 'right' embellishments but now I'm not sure I want to part with them!

Wool Week is now Wool 16 Days! It took me a bit by surprise but I managed to get some wool to The Silverdale Hotel for display.The Hotel has acted as host for a display for the past few years and is currently being beautifully done up by the owners.The point of a display there is that you can see the conservation grazer sheep in their field from the hotel windows while enjoying your meal.We had a great welcome from the owners and a gorgeous cup of coffee while we set up a coastal themed display of local wool.
On to Arnside to leave some stock at Posh Sardine wondering what everybody on the Stone Jetty was looking at....... here it is The Arnside Bore! No its not a boring person its a tidal phenomenon (I think)
Lovely day out nice weather for a picnic on the shore at Silverdale
and then pop in to see the farmers in Yealand Conyers and collect some lovely Masham fleeces the very last of this years fleeces.I'm really late with everything this year!

I've collected some really beautiful fleeces from some lovely farms and had loads of help from farmers really interested in what is going to happen to their fleeces.All the farms in gorgeous Lancashire countryside and ..... I forgot to take a camera on all 3 trips! So here instead are some images of my tie dying and space dying.

😭😢😢😢Its Open Farm Sunday at Low Bankside Farm,Cartmel LA11 7NR.Fleeces will be from there as well as Silverdale this year and I'd really hoped to be there to do some spinning but can't make it after all so I'm really disappointed but I'm sure it'll be a great day if anyone can get to it.See Fishwick Farms facebook page for details
