silk sent me the loveliest little deer, which i received right after my camera broke. I was borrowing a camera for a school project and took pix in my office on campus. I wish I had pictures of her deer, it's really the most darling thing ever.
meet lumpy the sheep:
i spun his "fleece" from raw (as in full of dung and hay) wool that i had. I soaked the wool washed it and "carded" it (by pulling it into big clumps) and then spinning it into lumpy singles and then plying it with itself. Then I knit it up into a sheep, which i made up as I went along. It's stuffed with left over roving, cotton and rice that i soaked in lavender EO so it can be used as a snuggley or a sachet
