Welcome to my world of fiber art love! I love all things fiber art but mostly art quilting, rug hooking and felting. I try my hand at knitting and crocheting sometimes and occasionally will sew up something simple like drapes or aprons! Also, it is my musings and contemplation on life in general. Enjoy AND KEEP CREATING!

My new "scarf"
A friend sent me this beautiful wool she hand dyed..and I was going to make mittens...but I wanted the beautiful wool by my face...for color and softness and warmth for the cold months ahead! I made this as a circle...like a turtleneck you just put it over your head..and you can cover your lower head and ears as well....Isn't is scrumptious wool and a wonderful blend of colors!?? I love it...! I made it a bit big...so when it gets wet...it wont shrink too much and be too tight. The other reason I made this instead of mittens,....Is I am mitten challenged! I need a class or help in some way;...I tried and tried but I had no idea what I was doing! I wish Debbie MacComber would have her Blossom Street Knitting Store right by my house...we have a knitting store nearby ...but the knitters just sit and knit...there is no classes and I have gone but I end up asking too many questions and feel its not quite what I need. I wish I had a store nearby that had mitten, sox, hat and shawl classes...etc...just like in the Blossom Street series....I am the type of person that needs hands on help....I was able to figure out rug hooking mostly by myself...but I find knitting is bit trickier than hooking to me. But I do love and will definitely wear this ALL the time...so I am still very happy! Plus, it feels good to actually finish something usable!!!
