Look at me with the new 'do' on my Blog. I felt brave enough to fiddle and faff in the settings section and behold...New Look Blog. I really didn't have a clue what I was doing and things have changed a bit since I last mooched in the settings. I could do with changing font style and size but that will have to wait it eludes me for now. They say 'a change is as good as a rest', well I have had both. I have no clue what direction my blogging is going in, but then I never really did. It is all ok. I like being here.
I think the photograph, that I have used at the top of the Blog motivated me to have a Blog tidy up. I found it in old picture files on my computer. It is a photograph of singles that I have spun using 'scrap fibre'. The 'scrap' was generated by the wonders of cyber space and the UK Spinners group on Ravelry. People 'pool' their scrap fibre, via some great volunteers and then it gets redistributed in a 'Scrap Swap'. I love how something beautiful can be made from 'scraps'. Last night I cropped the bobbin out of the photograph using a photo editor, just to focus on the spun yarn. It 'spun' me off into an arty farty, reflective 'frame' of mind full of metaphor and allusion. Yep, playing with yarn does that to me.
"The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together:
Our virtues would be proud if our faults whipped them not"
All's Well That Ends Well - William Shakespeare
Thank you for stopping by and please do share any of your own arty farty thoughts with me. May all of your yarns be beautifully mingled. ;) xx
