Finished Fiber Piece!

It is finished!!!!!!!
The fiber piece is now done, folks. And could not be happier, that stress is now gone.

The fiber show is this Sat, and I will take pictures at the show and also post those for you.
This is the Art co-op in Peninsula, Ohio check it out.
Please let me know what you think, I love to hear from other artists.

I'm trying to figure out how to do the pictures in a different layout of my kids, so bear with me.

Keep composing that art,

Working Hard for the due date.

I am working on my fiber piece almost everyday in hopes of getting it done for the fiber show.
The one thing I don't like about due dates for projects is that they seem to get in the way of getting the piece done right. You worry about that date instead of thinking about the piece or at least I do.
I will be working on the piece and will get ready to put something on it and it will tell me to put something different on it. I will have to stop and add or take away a piece of it and change it for something else.
I hope to take a new picture this afternoon and post it later.

Spinners Hook and Spinning

One of the hardest things that I am trying to teach myself is to spin yarn.
It is not as easy as it looks, my hands don't want to do what I tell them, they have a mind of their own.
I took the time to make a spinners hook, which pulls the started thread through the orifice of the spinning wheel. Something new to think about making now.
I friend gave me bags of Alpaca fibers of all different colors and I am learning to wash, clean, and comb the fibers, it is fun!
But spinning is a different story, will keep you up to date on things.

I am still working on my fiber piece for the show coming up July - August.
Keep stitching,
