Fiber Twist

I just got back from the Fiber Twist in Deerfield and it was fun. I met some really nice people and I picked up a few things to try out. The first is a drop spindle and some roving so I can try spinning my own yarn. The second is a punch needle kit because it looks really fun.

Now I just need to decide on which to do first; spinning or needle punch? Ahhh, I need a clone of myself so i can do twice as much! Pics later!

Swap time

I have just finished making stuff for a swap over at Craftster. I feel like I should add more to it but at the same time, there is a lot to it.  I am getting ready to start on the Dotee swap now but I probably won’t get them started past the sketching stage right now as I’m rather tired. I have lots of ideas though. I think I have a mould I can use to make clay faces but I’m not quite sure how I would attach them. I may just use fabric ones for now.

In a swap I received some nice roving for felting so I may make a felt Dotee but we’ll see. I havn’t tried it out just yet but my fingers are itching to get pokey, lol. As usual, everything is a challange when my kitten Black Jack insists on checking out and helping me with everything I’m doing. When he’s not sleeping on this computer, that is.

Oh, and yesterday for a swap I made my first card and evelope. Like the dunce I am, I forgot to take a picture before I had it all sealed up! D’oh, I’ll have to remember next time.
