anything better to do on your holiday?.. I don't think so.
I went home for a relaxing holiday and couldn't sit still..so let's look for something fun to do. How about learning a new (crafty) skill? Spinning??? Yeah!!!
A bit of internet searching put me in touch with Tita, from Oficina do Fio. Besides being a lovely person who enjoys sharing her knowlegde and a great spinner, she's also got the loveliest house (I am into old houses) packed with spinning wheels, and looms...summary: paradise!
I had a lovely time with Tita, and I learned quite a lot..though I have to admit I am not the best student.
1. one of my versions of paradise (another one could be a ribbon shop, buttons, fabrics, etc :)
2. Granny squares blanket...an original one! amazing. The brown furry thing you see is a poncho made of dog's fur. It is so soft you wouldn't believe. Now that was new for me, that you can spin dog's fur.
