Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

I've spent the last 30 minutes surfing around Pinterest...must pull myself away and get this post written.  If you haven't experienced the giant time suck for yourself you should certainly go check it out! It's my favorite dead-brain activity these days.  Lots of pretty pictures and very few words, LOL

Last pic of completely knit Big Zig Bag before felting
Beautiful handspun gifted to me by my BFF Paula...I love the sparkley!

We're both pretty excited about taking a trip tomorrow down to Chelsea, MI for the Spinners Flock Sale.  And hoping we find a good place for lunch. This place looks pretty promising...can't really go wrong at a place called Gourmet Chocolate Cafe now, can you?

It's getting to be the time of year for sheep shearing...Shady Side Farm is on February 25th, Windswept Farm is on February 26th and Hillside Jacobs is on the 10th of March. If you'd like to see some sheep and maybe get some nice fresh fleece check 'em out!

Thank you all so much for stopping by. Be sure to leave a comment so I know you visited. You should go check out all the creative peeps that participate in Fiber Arts Friday over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Tell Andrea I said hey!

Have a great weekend!
How do you like my teefs?

I can't wait to see the felted bag. The before and after are always fun. Have fun at Spinner's Flock. I've never been to it before...I really should go.

The gifted yarn is delicious. I can't wait to see what you knit with it.

Goodness... we had a "Chocolate Cafe" in Albuquerque. I loved it. There is one in Fort Collins too... I've heard it's good, but haven't been yet. Enjoy your visit. :-)

And wait a minute.... shearing in February... in Michigan... really? Brrrr
