I am so impressed with your spinning talents!  And completely jealous of that picturesque spinning location!

So much awesomeness.  I feel bad for darting in to post a project and rushing off, but...

Prompt: September Battle - Good vs EVIL
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO, Community
Project Name: Hand-Spun Acrylic
Project Post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440829.0
Brief Description: This is my second take at spinning acrylic. Yarn from yarn!  Yarn inception.  It is completely evil, though, because it's an arduous, time-consuming project and you get SO LITTLE yarn out of it.  This is the result of HOURS and HOURS of work, and it's about 14 yards.  This is why people either have drum carders or buy wool ready to spin!  But I finally finished my red/yellow mix, and my drop spindle is ready for some wool!

Okay, okay, after this I swear I will make some wool yarn, I have the fiber, I just... I'm so worried about messing it up!

This is my off-cuts of red, yellow and orange - I started it eons ago (before I'd actually completely finished the blue!) and it's only 14 yards, but I still think it's pretty cool to go to that level of recycling!

Recap of the process (because I want Nerd Games community points!):

Starting will a ball of the leftover ends of yarn...

Cut into bits...

Deconstruct using two dog slicker brushes...

Make fluff....

And spin into yarn!  Yarn from yarn, it's like fiber inception.

I've added some quilt squares and foam stamps!  Still working on more fairy doors and I have some mini hats in the works, and fighting with my camera (why so blurry, phone?! you've been so good until now!).

Awww, I loved that book heart hoopla!

Sold to spikefan (thank you!) - all my little books and two fat quarters (I hope I read it right and these are the right ones!)

Very cute, and I love the way you did the hair!  I have a hard time with hair (um, in real life and on my dolls...).

So. Cute.

I agree, I would have thought it was a purchased wee bunny, fantastic job!
