Meet Fred, the Opossum

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?


  1. I do love the personality of this little dude.

  2. Fred is a real cutie! Sorry I missed your fire sale!

  3. Hi Pat, The sale was a spur of the moment. Next time I'll blog in advance!
