Fiber Arts Friday 11 12 10

Welcome to this week's installment of Fiber Arts Friday.   A weekly gathering of fiber enthusiasts from around the world.  Hop over to Wisdom Begins In Wonder and check out all the great things that they are teaching and learning about.

On Sunday I drove south for a gathering with my ZPDK peeps from down Battle Creek/Kalamazoo way and had a great time.

We knit
and wound
 and dyed
all over Heidi's old church-house.  Could not have been a better day.  Such a great bunch of crafty folks who share so much of each other and their fibery endeavors.  It's an honor and a privilege to be a part of this group a couple times a year.

I got more of Andrea's pretty fiber - the one on the top in this photo is 70% Suri-Wonderz White, 30% Merino Lavender...super soft and pictured here above my previous purchase from her, for color comparison.
and a couple of batts or pretty red-orange-brown-sparkly from Heidi too
I'm so happy with the pretty yarn I dyed
and best of all...I got to hang out with my friend Kim.  Oh, and I got my official ZPDK Shovel.    

 Bring on the zombies!  mwah-ha-ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you all have a great weekend!

I'm so glad you came down for the play day. I hope that we can do more and Heidi's place is nice because it's a wee bit closer for you to drive than my farm. 17 miles is 17 miles.

Can't wait for the next time to see you. BTW, your black hat is sassy. I saw the photos on FB.
