Earlier this week I had an impromptu “fire sale” to generate some much needed money. I put on sale some of my handspun yarns, my knitting patterns, and some finished knitted and woven pieces. It worked. I did make some money, and those who made purchases got great deals.
But better than money, I did make one trade. My friend, Sally C., is a talented fiber artist. She does wonderful weaving, and she also does magnificent needle felting. For the past few years, I have admired the delightful birds and woodland creatures that she needle felts. Recently, she created an opossum.
I had to have it.
So, Sally and I made a fiber trade. She got some yarn (a merino and cormo yarn I called “Curried Eggplant”) and I got the opossum. I call him Fred. This morning I took pictures of Fred in various locations of the front garden and back yard. Isn’t he just adorable?
