Preparing To Transfer

I’m preparing to do some Poloroid Transfers this afternoon.  To get ready, I did some photography and have used some of it with vintage images and writing from my collection, to make collages that i can use for the transfers.

I can’t wait to work on the transfers later on today.

This week I’m doing something fun and special with some old friends.  Some of my hand-dyed yarns and other items will be available for sale at Club Thread beginning on Wednesday for the next two weeks.  I’m especially excited about doing some collaborative work with Tara from Urban Fibers.  We have a few things in the works, including the most fantastic tote bag for knitters!  I’m excited because I just received a large shipment of Blue Faced Leicester yarn, as well as more organic merino, so I will be busy with my dyepots for part of the holiday weeked, and am excited about some new colorways, like the Rose Garden, pictured below, as well as repeating some recent favorites like Treasure and Lizard.  I’m hoping to have the www.elliebelly.com fully stocked by the end of the month.  New items are starting to creep into the store in dribs and drabs, so please drop by for a look!
