Time for tea!

Well yesterday I had a trip to Leek, a lovely market town in the Staffordshire Moorlands. It was so very cold, but the scenery looked fantastic as the frost dusted everything. I paid a visit to to see Darren and get some gorgeous mohair. Postage is very cheap if you don't live nearby, in fact its probably cheaper than me using the car! It was lovely to have a natter and to feeeeeel that mohair. I picked up a piece of the mohair I used for Robbie and Robert, its such a favourite. Anyway, its to 'dye' for! I used some strawberry teabags, they smell lovely, shame I can't stand tea, normal or fruit. It gave the mohair a lovely pink backing with a dirty, old looking beige/pink pile. So I can feel a panda wanting to be born, my poor pandas have not been seen lately. Sally Shortbread will be on ebay later, still the best place to be seen I think. By the end of the year I'm hoping to be able to sell from here too, cross fingers!
