First, we have some new babies here on the farm. No April Foolin', both Willow and Scarlet both gave birth to beautiful girls. Willow on March 31 and Scarlet on April 1. Five females total! They are absolutely adorable. Of course this means that in a few weeks I will have fresh goat milk to drink, make soap with PLUS learn to make cheese with. Squeal! To see more updates, just visit my Facebook Farm Page.
Next, I whipped right through a Saori Weaving project. I'm calling this cowl, Spring Sweet Spring. I am eager to see my Lilacs in bloom so I went with rich Purples and Greens. I used some new techniques in the weaving and am very pleased with the additional texture.
I also make a new bird pod. This one used a bunch of fiber that I had bought when I first learned how to spin. A little lesson for new felters, if it isn't good enough to spin then it's probably not good enough to felt. I fought the fiber big time. I don't think some of it was labeled right either. The evil super wash had to be in there. It just didn't felt don't quite like I hoped. It's still pretty awesome though.
That's been my week. Rain, snow, sunshine, weaving and goats. Now, share your adventures in Fiber Arts!
