You play with fibre as part of your degree?
You lucky thing! What subject is it?
I'm doing a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art, and I major and minor in textiles (so both my practical units and my studo work are in textiles). In one of my classes we really play with techniques, and it just so happened that this week we were doing fusing (where you use and fibre and what-not within tulle using textile medium etc.), so it was like fibres gallore Wink

How lucky was that? I was so sad that I got the master felter to craft for me and I didn't have any freaking roving, LOL Grin Now I just have to figure out what to do when next week comes, they're probably expecting some arty thing involving the wool fibre I took, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, eheh Tongue

I am so excited to see what you come up with! This was the best swap idea Cheesy

OK, software up and running, here's the excellent goodies jane feebles sent me.

socks, fabric, buttons, webbing type trim (?), beads, a key ring and a post card that says "get your nuts wet", hee hee!


a fantabulous scarf with a map of aus, I am not sure I can do this justice  Undecided


Aaaaaannndddd, the rabbit pelt! I have already had to rescue it off the cat, I am not sure what she was planning on doing with it but she had some kind of 'super horn' for it  Wink

I just had to laugh at that! I got this mental image of the cat laying on the pelt, kneading her paws into it and purring!  Cheesy

(cyndiq and I should receive each others packs soon... The suspense!!!)

Where on earth did you get a rabbit pelt jane feebles..Huh
(Reminds me of the time my ex step dad used to go ferreting, and I tried to cure (is that the right word) a rabbit skin..... it didnt work Sad Just ended up in a big stiff piece of blah that my dog tried to eat Sad)

Eyeuw! She was drooling too? She had it bad!  Cheesy Ha ha ha !

If you have any snippets left over at the end of the swap you should make a little something stuffed with catnip for your cat! She'd love you devotedly forever! (With whatever love was left-over from loving the pelt.)

Oh dear, you give that pelt a good brush down before you send it back,I don't want any bits of cat loving lingering...  Wink
There's a great leather-working shop just near me ElvenOne that has everything you'd ever need for leather, including a fantastic array of all sorts of leathers.  They have everything from your basic cowhide to barramundi leather in acid colours  Smiley I love that place

Oh, and twelvety you can keep that postcard if you like, I chucked it in at the last minute after all your talk about snow, seeing how it's like 15 degrees warmer up here in Brissie (I sometimes get to wear a cardi at night now that winter's started  Wink) Cyndiq, don't even start
