Flowers - Must be Spring

may09 059, originally uploaded by sunfleur1.

I have been needle felting like crazy this week. These little flowers are my latest joy. I want to branch out a bit from my regular pins, so I need suggestions into what I should make these. Necklaces? Supplies?

Help me. I am felt crazy these days.

Etsy Front Page 2/23/09

Apparently, I was on the front page back in February and I missed it! My second time ever. I was trying to find the unexplained reason for my high view count in April, no luck there yet. But this was an unexpected find! Yay! Second row, middle pic.

The scarf is still in my shop

What's your superpower? Twirling!

DSCN9550, originally uploaded by sunfleur1.

When my daughter was 3, she said she was a superhero, and her daddy asked her that question. Her answer was "Twirling!" and she proceeded to give a spinning demonstration....

While I may not be a superhero, I did give my version of spinning a try again. These are some recent spinnings I did, including one from some of the roving I bought last week. (The pink one on the end.)

The Pink/Green is merino and angelina glitz, I spun 25.5 yds already. The light purple green is 19 yds, i think it's merino. The fuzzy teal purple is 19 yds, pretty sure that is mohair and corridale. i got 25.5 yds of the black alpaca. The blue purple is merino/tencel - 3 sks of about 14 yds ea. And the orange-green corridale is about 29 yds. I am not sure about the yardage of the lime green merino (froggyfibers!), but that's my second spinning of it ...I have to see what the first batch from last year looks like to compare.

I really like spinning my own yarn. It's so satisfying. Now, if I can only bring myself to knit something with it....
