the craft shows went well. although, last night i was burnt to a crisp from sitting in the sun for five hours. it feels like autumn… wait, no, it’s summer… it feels like autumn… you know the story. anyhow, they went well and that’s what matters. i even sold a couple of my very favorites. i’m always pleased to see them go to a good home. sabbathy monday combined with craft fair tiredness, plus the fact that i seem to have lost my tapestry needle again means no hats for your viewing pleasure today. instead, i thought i’d show you another project.
what do i do with all of those sweater chunks from my early recycling career that don’t come apart well or that are undesirable fiber for some reason? what about the small chunks of yarn that you inevitably get when ripping sweaters now? ugly roving that i would felt if i over dyed? over spun yarn from my early spinning days? small pieces of waste fluff from spinning now?
well, i’ve found the perfect solution:
ben’s old beanbag. he gets very excited when i find another something fibery that i don’t want :) and i must say that wool is a way better filler than the crap that’s normally in bean bags. and now i have a useful place to put stuff rather than trying to convince someone else to use it. it makes us all happy – hurrah! here’s a photo of the insides:
speaking of stuff i don’t really want, i am finding yarn that i’m quite willing to part with while organizing also. i’m thinking maybe trades… i’ll keep you posted.
