Fiber Arts Friday Post


Here's a little peek at some of the fiber goodies I have been working on this week. The TDF rolls on, and I have been spinning away, however I feel like I am neglecting my other fibery interests, so I squeezed in a little work on some non-spinning projects too. I finished up the HailDust and GoldDust bobbins, I plan on thread plying them with metallic thread. I spun up some small skeins of coil yarn to use in a felting project, you can see the start of it there in the center. I was inspired by Heather Woollove's posts showing the technique she uses for felting her lovely purses. I wanted to try my hand at this technique while making a new felted bag for my spinning wheel, incorporating some of my coiled art yarn. I need to do some needle work to embellish my new little bag before it is truly finished. I have to thank Ms.Woollove for her excellent and inspiring posts.

I hope everyone has a delightful weekend! Blessings Friends!
