I’m about to empty my dust extractor, it’s full of sawdust. Go to a diy store that cuts wood, they will give you some

Us simple folks call them Hoovers. Middle classes call them Vacuum cleaners. I assume you are the queen.

Or if you like the smell of hamster piss and you know someone with a pet hamster they'll often throw away used sawdust.

Then get out of the Crafty thread and come back when you’re making something yourself.

Except this is actually a dust extractor which I use with power tools to save turning wherever I’m working into a hamster cage

I was joking, DB!

Also, I have an actual Hoover. As in, it’s a Hoover brand vacuum.

I didn’t think you were offended, I was worried that you thought I’d actually assumed you were talking about your household vacuum cleaner.

I looked at that coat and thought it was a bit rough, then realised they were the inside-out photos of the lining. :facepalm:

Great work, Trooper!

New project! This material is a wool light blanket from Ikea
https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/tex ... -70374114/
£4!

Should make a nice waistcoat. The matching of the lines is a bit of a ba-llache, but seems to have worked out so far.

I’m catching myself up a bit. Firstly, I’ve been working on a few Sashiko pieces that I’m going to piece together to make a quilt. I hope to have it finished in time for when the baby is born (not a new baby, just the same old one that turns three in September. D’oh).

I started the first of these squares at the cottage one year, before I was pregnant. D’ohhhhh!

Also, I’ve ginally got a replacement drive band for my spinning wheel, so I’ve finished spinning this yarn which I think I’ll use as the weft yarn for some woven piece, maybe with a natural white warp.

It 630 yards of colours.

I love the colours in that yarn Mimi. :)

Chloe was crafting too this weekend, she made these three huge flowers after dying the petals herself.

How beautiful. What are they made of? I especially like the left-most flower, with those subtle little shifts in colour. She looks really chuffed with them, and rightly so. Also, how grown up now!

They are made of a sort of thick tissue paper with a non stick backing. She made the pink petals first, then the yellow, then combined half of the dye from each to make the orange (on the left). I like making things with her where we have to wait for things to dry to teach her patience. ;) We do start other things while we wait though. :P

Grown up indeed, she will be 11 this year. :s

I bought these 2 ceramic coasters and this pair of earrings from a certain thing I popped into at the weekend. I think I could have spent ALL THE MONEY EVERY as there was so much nice stuff there but £50 was enough.
