My name is Guzzisue and............

I am a fibre addict.
fibre project 001

This is just the tip of the iceberg, I also have bags and bags of coloured assorted fibres.The challenge is to start to use some of this stash.
It all started at my first sewing show when I bought a small bag of this and one of that.The problem is that instead of playing with a lot of these they have been admired then put in the cupboard for safe keeping.

I have already made one small project which will be revealed once it has been received by its new owner.

silk fibres,silk cocoon fibres, unspun silk

The degummed silk cocoons are proving fun to pull apart, have been loosely spun with merino with mixed results which I think is more down to my bad spinning that anything else.
Over the next few days I intend to push a selection of these fibres under the embellisher and see what develops.I want to try and work with just these and as little commercially prepared material as possible although I will need to add embroidery threads but I think I have some that are undyed so I can colour those myself.

On a lighter note, my thanks to Acereta for these awards. Another lacemaker but this time in Russia working on a very different style of lace to mine.

So, what's the problem??? They say a "high fiber diet" is healthy! LOL! ;)

So what? There isn't any health issue warning on fibers yet :-) and with the crisis right now, I'm sure you're glad to have built a stash...

just wish I could remember why I bought some of the stuff in the first place!!

It does look "suspicious" in all those baggies, LOL! ;)
