I was looking for something else in my room the other day when I saw this home made seed envelope and wondered what was in it. Imagine my surprise when I found shells and pieces of shell all with holes in them. Just the kind of thing I wanted to spin onto string. It quite revived my interest in spinning string on my spinning wheel.
I put day lily leaves on to soak this time, the whole of the crop of spent leaves from my day lily for the year. Then the spinning began.
This time, I decided I wouldn’t ply. I liked my iris leaf string better before it was plied. I also decided not to clip all the ends. They are softer and less numerous and I decided I quite like them this time!
Well. That’s one of my show entries sorted. And a wild, strange looking thing it is. Now for the others! I have some effort to put in and a bit of focus is going to be required if I am to submit them all…
