A Fiber ~ Art ~ Moment ๐ŸŒบ Throwback Thursdayย 

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for joining me today! 

I hope you don’t mind, but for today’s ‘Fiber Art Moment’ I’d like to show you a few of my past creations. ๐Ÿ˜Š

See – I’ve had this “sometimes in life the best laid out plans are ruined by unexpected goings-on” thing happening here. ๐Ÿ˜œ Nothing disastrous, just normal interruptions of my routine. So –  I didn’t have the leisure to explore the webs for awesome artwork. I hope these here will do, and add some enjoyment to your day. ๐Ÿ˜

I made this ‘Nature Weaving’ last year ~ using twigs, enameled leaves, and ribbon to embellish the pretty yarn. ๐Ÿ˜Š

This one hangs in my bedroom. I removed a large canvas (print), and used the frame as a loom. 

One of my first Dreamcatchers… ๐Ÿ’•

This here is one of my favorites. ๐Ÿ’œ I felted an old wool sweater, and needle-felted unspun wool on it. Back then I did write a ‘how-to’ post, if you love it and need (yet) another project ๐Ÿ˜here’s the link ๐Ÿ’•

I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Maybe something inspired you to get busy! I would really love to hear about it! ๐Ÿ’œ

Oh… I did find one thing I don’t wanna keep from you…


The guy on the right looks happy ๐Ÿ˜‚ If you start now you could surprise your guy with one for Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜œ 

Thanks for visiting and reading to the end! ๐Ÿ˜˜

I hope you come back soon! 

Until then ๐Ÿ’•

A Fiber ~ Art ~ Momentย 

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for coming back! 

For today’s Fiber ~ Art ~ Moment I picked some beautiful wearable art by Beverly Ash Gilbert. 

Her motto is ‘Color feeds the soul’, and this shows through in all her felted creations. ๐Ÿ˜

On her website http://www.beverlyashgilbert.com/gallery/galleryoffiberart.html she says 
“My goal is to inspire you with fun new ways to use color

Whether your passion is making and appreciating art or

Beautifying your business and home in small or large ways 

Color Feeds the Soul”

Here are 2 examples of her work ….

         
Stunning, aren’t they? ๐Ÿ’•

I don’t know Beverly personally, but I feel that I’ll get to know one of her creations up close and personal very soon. ๐Ÿ˜

I hope you enjoyed today’s pick. ๐Ÿค—

Until next time ๐Ÿ’•

A Fiber ~ Art ~ Moment ๐Ÿ’œ

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for taking a moment to peek in. 

Today’s ‘Fiber Art Moment’ is another Pinterest find – a cute needle felted miniature from Lisa Jordan.


On her Blog she says…

“Living the rural life in the woods of Minnesota, I find myself creating art that reflects the variety of textures and colors around me. The tiny worlds of fungi, moss, and lichens are particularly intriguing to me. I use primarily recycled and natural materials in my work, especially wool and wood.”

She is a very talented crafter as you can see for yourself when you visit her on Blogspot ๐Ÿ˜

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into an artist’s world. ๐Ÿค—

I’ll see you tomorrow for ‘Work in Progress Wednesday’ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Until then ๐Ÿ’•

A Fiber ~ Art ~ Moment ๐Ÿ’œ

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• I hope you’re having a great weekend! Thanks for taking a minute to visit. 

Today I want to introduce you to Althea Crome. She’s a knitter of miniatures – even though that term doesn’t really describe her talent…and patience! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I found her  website – bugknits.com – by pure chance, and am absolutely awestruck. 

Let me show you why …..

   So darling! ๐Ÿ’•
  She made an iddy – biddy Christmas Cardigan ๐Ÿ˜
 Mini gloves – One finger fits a grain of rice ๐Ÿ˜ณ
On her website she tells us how she came from knitting ‘wearables’ to miniature knitting: 

“In 2000, my fascination with this tiny scale merged with my love of knitting, and since then I have been pushing toward ever new technical and design challenges. Tough as it is to knit on such a small scale, the “bug-knit” scale has allowed me the freedom to create and experiment with designs which, on a larger scale, would be cumbersome and prohibitive. My success in developing commercial patterns and techniques for 1:12 scale gloves, socks and other garments has only inspired me to venture further into what I’ve come to think of as “extreme knitting.โ€ Indeed, from the time I began my vocation as an extreme knitter, I have made very few full-scale garments.”
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into an amazing artist’s life ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Until next time ๐Ÿ’•

Fiber ~Art Moment ๐Ÿ’œ

Hello and ‘Happy Weekend’ my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for peeking in today! 

We’re finally basking in the sunshine today!โ˜€๏ธ It’s a perfect Saturday here in eastern Kansas๐Ÿ˜ I hope you need a lot of sunscreen and your shades today ๐Ÿ˜ Or is it cloudy and rainy? โ˜”๏ธ

For today’s ‘Fiber~Art Moment’ I’d like to show you a lovely ‘Sock Quilt’ I came across this morning. ๐Ÿ˜€

 Sadly the artist/creator of this piece was not mentioned. 

Look – isn’t it pretty….and genius I might add ๐Ÿค“


Isn’t that awesome, and a great project to use up all the poor lonely socks you find in the dryer. ๐Ÿ˜

What do you think? Is this a project for you? 

I hope you will join me tomorrow for ‘New Stitch Sunday’ ๐Ÿค—

Until then
