Just in case you haven’t already heard we are now streaming live on Monday mornings at 10:30 GMT/BST on our Facebook page. During our streams we will be covering up coming events, news, show & tell and anything else that grows organically from the stream.
We have also chosen to record the streams so that other peeps on the internet can watch the playbacks. These recordings will be available on our YouTube channel and of course over here too. So without further ado, here is our first ever live stream from the Unravel & Unwind studio.
All TSS again but with lots of colour changes. You use 3 colours and change each time you finish putting on and each time you finish taking off. It sounds confusing but once you get into it, then it makes sense. Faye said she had to keep reminding herself to actually do the colour changes, she said she was getting too over confident.
#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 20a – Block 35
Faye found this one easy however, confidence got the better of her and she had to frog several times because she wasn’t reading the full pattern and was forgetting to create the shells.
My daughter, Leah and I had a bonding evening last night. Both of us were having a pretty rough hyper-mobility day and we wanted to cheer ourselves up.
I had mentioned wanting to learn how to use movie maker to create videos that we can share on YouTube that are relevant to everything Unravel & Unwind C.I.C stands for. Most of all, just having a laugh and enjoying ourselves.
A while ago, Leah had been folding paper into animal shapes and had left them knocking around the studio. This was perfect for us, as Leah immediately jumped into story writing mode and had me hunting through our vast card stock to find pieces to make a background.
We did have a good giggle, and I must have used at least 2 phone batteries. Once the photographs had been taken we then had the task of cropping out our fingers and uploading them to the laptop. That was when we realised that I had no movie/video software, so I had to hunt out Windows Movie Maker.
Movie maker was a lot cheaper than I expected too. It came in at around £25.00 which I think is a fair investment as we plan to make a lot of our own video’s, especially tutorials and live streams.
So after a few hours of writing, cutting, arranging, photographing, cropping, giggling (and oh I don’t know what else), we finally had a very short video that we were both happy with. Oh and we were able to find some backing tracks too, courtesy of Purple Planet Music.

Although this block is one of the easier ones to make and there are no errors, I did find that it came out really tight. I ended up using a size larger hook.
If you do not have a larger Tunisian hook, don’t worry. As the blocks are so small, you can use a regular hook. Just take care that the stitches do not fall off the other end.
#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 18 – Block 10
A nice easy one this time, just TSS and chain. Faye’s notes also say “very easy, finished in 40 minutes”
#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 18a – Block 7
Helen has to confess, she did not like this block. She could not get into a rhythm and it took her ages to make. It did not help that you have to flip back and fore between pages. Read the instructions carefully.
Faye, however totally forgot to keep notes on this block other than she only did 15 rows.
More bobbles and chain loops. These chain loops are much easier to make that the ones we made in week 4. When working past the chain loops in the next row, double check that you have picked up the correct vertical bars, it is easy to either miss some or pick extra.
