I received an awesome whimsie package from ScrappySue!! Check it out:

The container: a birdhouse in my favorite color, blue!



The roof comes off to reveal this:



Whimsies!
An old bottle (on top of the pig fabric), wine stopper, coins, leaf charm, pink monkey head, geode, and other tiny treasures.



Crafted goodies!
Strawberry wrist pincushion, zippered pouch with button embellishments, and an adorable owl.



Paper items!
These were Jax's favorite- can you tell? Fantastic old photos (I love old photos!!), miniature playing cards, and pages of images and text.



And finally...my favorites!
Starfish fossil, tiny wooden shoe, itty bitty black iron, green Trojan horse, keys, and a huge seashell.



Thanks you so much Sue!! I had a terrific time swapping with you, love my goodies, and can't wait for you to get yours!

This is a swap for fiber dyers. There are two swap options:

For this swap, you will be put in groups of 3. You will send dyed roving/top or carded batts to each of your 2 partners. You may send the same colorway to each of your partners, or you can chose different colors for them- like fiber clubs, the choice is yours. The type of fiber(s) you send is also your choice, though I ask you to please not send any rough fiber or fiber that your partners are allergic to.

SPECIAL EDITION TWIST: For this fiber swap, you will select an image as a basis of inspiration and will provide your partners with:

2. A sentence or two about how it inspired you.

The image can be anything- a magazine photo, pic from the Internet, drawing, clipart, or anything else that strikes you. And your finished product doesn't have to look anything like it- it's just a starting point to get you thinking and give your partners a little insight into your artistic process.

Teaser for slingmomma!! I'll be sending mostly fiber for you to spin, but a bit of handspun will sneak into your box too. But...which ones?!?!



This is what I've spun the last 2 weeks. Thanks to the Tour de Fleece I've been uber productive!  Cheesy  Unfortunately I also now have nowhere to shower until it all dries.  Roll Eyes

That looks so cool!! I have all kinds of fibers in all kinds of colors, if you wanted me to pull small pieces form a bunch and make you a kit. Just let me know!
I would love that!

LL, any types of fibers you wouldn't want? Any specific colors you want, or just a random selection? And it looks like maybe 6" would be the shortest you'd want?

freestyle--i've been experimenting with fleece; it works well as a core but so far i've only figured out how to create the outside with longer, processed fiber...i'd love to take a look, though!

I'll dig it out this weekend and snap a pic for you. I also have some gray Icelandic roving I could part with- I'll take a pic of that too. The rock rugs sound awesome!

i think i'll offer the felted "stones" loose, rather than sewn into a rug, so that the recipient can make it into whatever shape rug they want or just put 'em in a bowl). until last week i'd only seen the round one, but then i saw one in a freeflowing wavy shape and it was beautiful in a very different way.

Want! I could throw them at Jeff.  Cheesy  So I no longer have the mill end fleece (forgot about that spring cleaning I did...), but here's the Icelandic roving. If you think you might be interested, I can drop a sample in the mail.

Dangit, ariaya I am totally coveting all your fiber. What's that? What's that fiber? You want to come live with me? Well, ok...  Cheesy

Speaking of fiber that came to live with me- here are the rovings I received from Nesse and .:dollface:.!!

From Nesse- Australian Merino


From .:dollface:.- Merino and *ANGORA*


Thank you ladies!! I shall love it and squish it and spin it up good!
