I've just ordered two ugly batts! I emailed Abi regarding the batts and she was so kind! She had some great batts up there in a flash!

I can't wait till they arrive!

I worked on this batt this week..


Spun 2 bobbins..





I'll have better photos this weekend after the twist is set.. I spun it pretty thin.. letting the neps and nubs and slubs just happen.. there's SO much fun texture and color! I LOVE how it's turning out!

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Lubee, since you have a drum carder, you should try your own hand at ugly batts.

I keep what ever comes off my licker in drum and big drum from each of my batt makings in a bag.  When ever I get a few oz, I card them all together.  It's cooL!
