Having a fun kind of Saturday night. Went to
the opening of the new Michael's today. it was
pretty crowded in there, but I managed to find a
couple of treasures, not of the beady kind. Then
we hopped over to JoAnn's and I got a couple of
new magazines....Bead Unique (that's a good one
to get). But the one I liked best was Living Crafts.
It's packed full of all kinds of fiber fun. A really
cute set of knitted acorns and leaves that you felt.
Nicky Epstein created the pattern, she has a lot of
great books on knitting and embellishing your knits.
I have a book or two myself. Then there are a couple
of needle felted cuties...a hedgehog for one, that is
almost as cute as Humblebead's hedgies. Lots of
cute children's hats. What I thought was really great
was a section they had called FiberWorks. It lists a
lot of places to get your wool to work with. And one
page was dedicated to my favorite yarn and wool shop;
Mar-Haven Wool Farms. Barb has a great shop and
her own line of wool yarn. She's a really sweet person
to visit with and willing to help you if you need it. With
all those fiber ideas, I think I'm gonna put my beads to
the side for a bit and go back to the thing I really love.
I have a sweater to finish and blankets to make, not to
mention the stuffies I want to get done before Christmas.
I better get my rear in gear or I'll never make it.
So I'm leaving you with this fun little video I found. Thanks
Bev for helping me figure it out, but I really have to thank
Lorelei too. She posted directions to a friend one time and
I remembered to look for that...so thanks Bev and Lorelei!
