It's me again-how are you all- the sheep and wool show in Maryland is coming up in about 1 month-I can't wait-I will be going but only for Saturday-I really like the show and hope I can find some great fiber-I just got the DVD The Bridges of Madison County-I'm going to make a pot of tea and settle down to watch the great love story-Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep are great actors- I'm going to shut off the phone so there are no interruptions - so I guess this is short and sweet but it is 10 pm and the movie is about 2 hr. long. I want to work on some new nuno felting tomorrow-I dyed some cotton cheesecloth a beautiful robins egg blue-about 5 yards-and I am going to use lime green, fuchsia, lavender, lilac and periwinkle blue in both merino wool and silk velvet that I dyed-when the fabric is felted I will then think about what I want to make it into-something nice and light for the spring-I will keep you informed with some pictures-Ok that's all for now.

Hello!!! What's new with you--I have been working on some new fabric wrist cuffs-they are not only very pretty but they do keep your wrist warm and comfortable. They were a lot of fun to make-I used bits of my fabric stash and my needle felting machine. It works so great-easy to make really nice designs. I did some free motion embroidery with silk thread and then backed the whole thing with merino felt and my label. I am going to upload them to my etsy store this weekend for sale so have a look and let me know what you think-I really do like to hear from you all-the feed back you give me helps me to create more beautiful things-so please do tell me what you think. My etsy store is     so check it out if you have the time. Here are a few of the new fabric wrist cuffs--
This one if made with hand dyed silk velvet , beads and free motion embroidery

This cuff is created with hand marbled silk, merino wool, free motion embroidery and beads- there is an ice cream cone charm added for fun.
