Recycled tee shirt

I have had the loveliest day crafting today.  I started by cutting one of Tony's old tee shirts into a large ball of Tarn. I wound it into a skein and dip dyed it in some red dye. I put it to dry over the back of the garden bench.  Then I cut my old WI magazine into rectangles and made a tub full of paper straws.  I joined most of them in pairs to make them longer.  This is such a therapeutic thing to do when you need to keeps your hand occupied but don't want a project that will take much concentration. I also put a pile of large pine cones to dry in the sun.  These I will use for a winter project. They need to be totally dry though otherwise they just turn mouldy.
