Isn't it cute?!
I have more to use up, and I've decided I don't want to save it all for needle felting.
Quite a bit of it is labelled 'Shetland' -- one purchased package of roving (far left) two bags of batting that I prepared myself from a Shetland fleece I bought a few years ago (centre two bags) and some off-white batting of unidentified breed (right side of photo) that I was given by my friend B in Calgary. (She's a wet felter but didn't have time, space or opportunity to use it.) I've begun with the Shetland and will spin it all up before turning to the Unidentified Breed.
Today after church I went weeding again at my sister's cottage garden, as she can't get up there till after the Calgary Stampede is over (she's working double and triple hours as Marketing Director of the Ranchmans Cookhouse and Dance Hall, Calgary's only genuine western night-spot)...
Sis grows the finest chickweed this side of the Rocky Mountains! LOL! In two sessions -- 4 hours on Monday and 2 more today, I've managed to locate her veggies at last. :-)
(P.S. Because I still can, I'm squeaking this into Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday for July 4!)
