Weekend of Fiber Goodness

No, no, I’m not talking bran here.  I’m talking wool, in various forms.

I was fortunate to have a long weekend, meaning I had Monday off for Columbus Day.  It was fantastic.  First, most of what was stressing me out?  I got done by Sunday morning.  I had a lot of time then to do what I wanted to do! (See, I sweat the small stuff too much.)

 Sunday, I decided to get out my drop spindles and give then a whirl. (hehe).  I think I have the basics down.  I don’t have any workable yarn yet, but it is going to take practice.  I earned a free class on Craftsy.com, and elected to take their spindling class.  It’s interesting.  It will be fun to work through it.

Monday, I decided to needle felt magnets for my craft show, just as little cute things for people to buy.  I got so into felting the little flower here that I almost missed an appointment.  Luckily, I looked up at the clock with JUST enough time to get there.  I zipped out the door.

All I did for magnets was cut them into strips and used fabric glue to adhere it to the felt.  It seems to work pretty well, if you were wondering.  And the felting, I did that free hand.  It looks like it was free hand, but I don’t think it’s too bad.

In all of this other fiber-y fun, I got two scarves knit.  It was heaven.  I need a diverse fiber weekend more often.
