After several weeks of utter frustration in the weaving dept. I've finally managed to
put the 2nd weaving project (Christmas present) to rest. Just need to wash it and
iron it. I'm so glad to have these two projects done finally and can move on to things
I would like to do for the Harvey House show in Feb.
This is my Mother in Law's handwoven scarf in brown cotton and the Painted Desert colorway. and the bottom one is my Sister in Law's table runner in coral, chocolate and multi/teal handspun.
I really love the colors together and am already thinking of OTHER projects to do with the tons
of yarn I have just laying around.......

Here are the last of the stockings. This one is by far my favorite and again is the inspiration to more creative endeavors. OH if only I had as much time as I have ideas .......Oh well. Seriously though, this was a blast.

Today was a scarf making day. I dyed 3 scarves a few days ago - Two in a dark red/purple and one in brilliant blue. This is one of the red/purple scarves that is Nuno felted with brown, teal, and red/purple wool with gold angelina fiber.
Here is a close up of the red/purple scarf. I haven't named this one yet. It might get a name if I get inspired. Next step - beading the edges but first I need to wait until it is dry.
it is fun!!!!!

My knitting/spinning/weaving buddy Terri gave me a fun project to do - felt fun Christmas scenes on her stockings - Oh my goodness - this has been a blast!
Here is the closeup of the first one - an Angora goat eating the carrot nose off of a snowman. Really - the more I felt the more fun I have and I am enjoying the challenge of coming up with themes for each stocking that combine Christmas and goats/dogs
I wish there were more time in the day to do more fun stuff like this ! Off to finish more projects - with two Craft fairs coming up and Christmas breathing down my neck I have a lot to do and very little time to do it in.
