The Winter Fleece Fair hosted by the Spinners Flock was held in Chelsea last Saturday, and it was a huge success. Happy shoppers kept us busy the entire day and left with bags full of roving, yarn, needlefelting supplies, and everything else you can imagine as far as fiberarts are concerned!
Folks are starting to grumble about the winter weather, so I created several small wall hangings of "flowers," using Border Leicester wool and Angora goat mohair dyed locks, a few scraps of Italian wool yarn, little bits of dyed Angora rabbit fiber, and lots of beads. All of this lays over a small, colorful piece of heat bondable Angelina. The fibers are needlefelted on to a piece of needlefelted Romney wool base dyed dark purple. The photos aren't great--you have to see them in person to appreciate their beauty!
