fun in the summer

Fibrations – a fibre event

free to all fibre fanatics

even needle felted bunnies and ravens

thanks to Stephanie and Ryan at Knotty by Nature

who do the organizing and planning

looking at the world through the spokes of a great wheel

locally grown and processed flax

it is a long process and hard work to create linen yarn

local folks hangin’ out

my only purchase – earrings

I needed them to fill the holes in my head!

then home to more stitching

adding to the current boro piece

stitching with linen thrums

inspired by my favorite sashiko book

the applique fabric is a small piece of old silk

and some handwoven, kakishibu dyed linen

a wonderful way to use precious scraps

placing a wee bit of quilt batting under the applique

even the garden is celebrating blue

    Wasn’t it fun! I almost bought those very earrings, but came home with a linen apron instead!

      Kjerstin – it was a lovely day. I definitely don’t need more earrings, just couldn’t resist
