Hi Alexandra, give it a try, though youll have to raid the closets of everyone you know to get enough, i even went to the thrift store! Great for small projects like baskets, but not so much for larger projects as all the yarn you make will be different. My favorite is making yarn from sheets, that will change your life! all the best!

Sorry to hear that Anna, I guess parents have to hook up with other parents first and encourage the letter writing, sigh. Too bad that it would have to be a school subject but that could certainly work for homeschoolers I would think. all the best, adn good luck with keeping your kids away from the electronics, I guess focuing on our own children is really the best thing we can each do.

Hi Daphne, so happy to hear you are enjoying cyclamen. I have not yet planted my seeds so sorry cant offer any advice, but here they are a winter flower, so February is maybe a bit early for you. Youll likely have a bunch of seeds, so so try starting them at different intervals, and do some research as to whether they need soaking first. all the best!
