Sneaky Peeky and Fiber

Well hi ya! Did you enjoy your extra hour this weekend? I must confess, I used my hour to take a nap on my back porch. The sun was finally out and it was a gorgeous day. I've been running around like a crazy bunny the past few months, so I decided a nap was well deserved. :)


Here's a little sneaky peeky of a Postal Fusion I'm designing for Valentines. Yes, I know it's only November, but I do have to design them, make them, write the patterns, etc. before I can share them with you. It feels good to be ahead of the game for a change. That being said, my Postal Fusions for Christmas patterns should be ready Wednesday!! I will only have 11 wool and floss kits available, so hop back first thing on Wednesday if you want one. The patterns will be available in paper or PDF.


Recently, I have fallen in love with different fibers. When I was at market, I went in search of some fiber vendors. Can we say Faaaaaaaaaabulous! Oh my gosh did I ever want to curl up and take a nap in a nest of this stuff! hee,hee,hee.


I'm going to be adding these gorgeous bits to some original Folk Art Fusion pieces that I would like to make.


I've had some ideas in my head for the past year and they are wanting to come to life. These pieces won't be part of a book or patterns for sale, they will simply be a body of work which I create for myself. Something to keep my creativity flowing and stretch my imagination.


In addition, every year I create a piece or two that I send to rabbit rescues. The kind hearted folks at the rescues, auction off the pieces to raise money. It makes my heart happy to help them.


Aren't they just gorgeous? Wool, silks, etc. that have all been hand dyed.


They are so soft. Just like a bunny. ;)


Ok, back to work for me. Go create something fun and hop back on Wednesday for my Postal Fusions - 2013 patterns.

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

Love all your fiber goodness! And so happy to hear you say you are making (playing)something for yourself.

Good morning Michelle! I took a nap too, in spite of getting an extra hour! It felt fantastic.

I think your addition of fibers to your folk art is going to be exciting. I love these textures and what they can do to a piece; we used to have the BEST shop in town that sold all sorts of fibers, but I think she went on-line now. But it was always fun to walk in and SEE (and even feel!) the various fibers.

Well my friend, enjoy Monday; I cannot believe it's already November 4. It's going way too fast! Anita

Glad to know that that creative mind gets an occasional restoritive nap. Do I really have to wait as long as Wednesday????? Bah Hum Bug....You know how I feel about your Postal goodies. I don't wanna wait. (I am stamping my foot and pouting, the people I work with think I've snapped) I'll be back.

I love the colors in the sneak peek. Also love all the batches of yarns, ribbons, etc. Yes, I would want to make something with them also. Have fun creating.

Createology said...

"Naps? Naps are for poor people. Up and at them!" (The little fairy on your right shoulder)

Sometime consider working birds into your fusion. I like seeing sketches, etc. that sort of capture a bird without being realistic.

Kris said...

Ohhhhh, I can't wait to see the Valentine's post cards!! Well, and the Christmas ones for that matter!! And you can tell Rabbit's Guy that I must be poor as a Church mouse, cuz I LOVE naps!! Gosh, that's why I am still up at this late, late hour!! :-))

Anna said...

I tell ya...I am still adjusting to the time change. your post today made me absolutely drool!!! Now I have to go change my shirt!

Carrie P. said...

what fun ribbons and trim. I can't wait to see how you use them all.

Sweet ones! Good morning! Dearest Michelle, you would love a castle. In France, I frequented many and even had Ruben take a picture of me hanging out of a castle balcony window. BUT those digital cards for the camera were not properly formatted so we lost all those photos! Well that means I simply need to go back. HEY! WE GOT SNOW! So our local bunnies are hunkered down for the winter. Good bye to the bark of my trees! LOVE! Anita
