When a fiber is called “baby” it doesn’t mean the fiber is from a baby animal.  The term baby is used to describe the softness.

Another wonderful workshop!

Yesterday we had our workshop at Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch store and it was SOOOO fun!!!

Laura and Jennifer both made felting projects and we had a ladies day of visiting and creating and eating yummy snacks, including some amazing gluten free, dairy free, chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies Jennifer made!

Laura chose plum and bitter chocolate colors as the background for her scarf and added lovely dyed fibers from her own Suri alpaca and from some Wensleydale fleece locks she had.  The reverse side had a combination of brown tones with white silk fiber running through, over a deep plum background.  Gorgeous combination!

Jennifer created a wall hanging of nutmeg and browns, lichen greens, rust, and whites; then on the other half of her project, she used the same colors to create felted fabric to top some throw pillows for her home.

Everyone expressed how much fun they had and I was delighted to share something I enjoy so much!

I am loving making the reversible scarves.  Check out the extra photos of these beauties and you will see what I mean.

I already have photos for two more new scarves coming onto Etsy soon.

Also, vintage brooches will soon be added to the buying options!  I just collected some beauties for the Etsy shop.  I hope you will check out my Etsy Store, like it, and share.  I intend to keep it stocked from now on!!!
