My hand spun on display

Some of my hand spun on was display at Crafthouse on Granville Island, but I forgot to post about it! How? I have no idea! lol

Fleece order from Etsy

A few weeks ago, I put in an order from Poppy Flower Fibers for a random 4 oz. bag of fleece! To tell you the truth, I had no idea what to expect. I thought maybe it would be just little chunks of solid colored fleece, but when I opened the package!!!! WOW!!!!

Amazing colors!! and all the pieces are super soft!! I'm especially in love with the one on the far left! it's the softest of them all!!! I wish that I knew what kind of fleece it was... maybe Poppy Flower Fibers will be able to tell me, or give me a good idea. I think it might be a superwash fleece.

I think I'm going to spin it into a patchwork yarn....

I received!

I received my package from my swap partner on Craftster!!! It was a fiber/handspun swap. Here is what my partner sent me:

Group Shot: Local (to her) Sheep fleece in white, 2 shades of yellow, and brown, Red/black/white mill ends, Blue hand spun yarn (love the color!), hand knit scarf with lace pattern, tree of life pendant, hand knit pin, art yarn extras.

Tree of Life pendant, Knit pin and card (handmade?)

Art Yarn extras. (I love this close up picture!)

I have sent my package to my partner, but she hasn't received yet, so I can't post pictures. Hopefully it will be soon!!!

I HAVE been crafting... and also dyeing and spinning, but it was all for a swap on Craftster. So, I can't post any pictures until my partner has received.
