So, let's start with this:
Remember that awesome orange yarn I posted last Friday? Well, it's going into the same project as the lovely cone above, which is actually three yarn stands - one white (really!), one red and one that salmon-y color. What, exactly, am I making with this shockingly awesome color combo? Hmmm ... tune in later.
Next, I received this fabulous hank of linen yarn (on the right)from a wonderful swap partner in Berlin. Get a load of that amazing color, achieved (again!) with three strands of laceweight linen. There is a little over 1300 yards of linen goodness in that skein. I know exactly what I want to make with it. But oh, I need more time! Too many great projects; not enough darn time, people - really!
And finally, the pièce de résistance for this week's fibery update - look what the talented Heather Woollove made just for moi -
Yes, it's my very own felt messenger bag of awesomeness! A few months back she had blogged that she was swapping projects with someone, and if anyone was interested in swapping with her ... . well, you know I was, so along with at least one other Friday Fiber Arts regular, I emailed Heather. After we exchanged a little information, I sent her this photo of my dining room table, taken on the fly,
from which she crafted my awesome messenger bag. It's got everything I love in a bag: it's messenger, utilizes some of my favorite colors, has just a little bit of bling, and on the inside (which no one but me can see!), there are three pockets lined with kitteh fabric. I'll get to smile each time I open it up. I'm smiling right now. Thanks, Heather! I do hope you love your swap projects (to come at the end of the month) as much as I love my messenger bag.
Please don't forget to check back with Andrea's blog - you never know how much fun you might have! Smile, smile, smile ...
