Had fun for a few hours this week using this to make this for a friend's birthday. Really different to knit with but a quite cool effect. It's very soft. And last night a friend and I went to the alt.shift.craft show at Square EdgeSaw lots of gorgeous work - lots of "my kind of craft" . Couldn't pass up this lovely ring by the very talented Debrina and discovered Sabine who makes 'Hadpainted yarns and fibres for the adventurous crafter'. This 100% hand painted cotton is now in my possession It has the delicious name of Viper's Bugloss and has a beautiful sheen - read more about it here and check out her other fibres and yarn for sale.
Other cool stuff from this week :
Great idea from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer with trimmings from your quilts : make fabric ATCs or postcards....makes me want to make a quilt just so I can trim it!
Always love Michelle Ward's enthusiasm - this time she's had fun with embossing plates thru a pasta machine
In love with the pink card in this post from Jackie of Dog-Daisy Chains.
And I am really enjoying reading this : Hope you have a creative weekend.
