A night scene in fiber...

It's been really hard for me to find time for fiber lately, and I may be breaking a new personal record for time spent NOT knitting (it's probably been at least 3 weeks since I've even picked up any needles!). I did, at least, make time for a bit of felting a few weeks ago, and put the finishing touches on this little project today (I knew it needed something, the recent full moon gave me the idea!)
I started with a felt sheet, purchased from the Kentucky Alpaca Association and processed by Flaggy Meadow Fiber Works. This was a great surface for needle-felting! I keep a good stash of my own hand-dyed fibers, and needled on the design and stitched in some tiny beeds.
Then I sewed a little border about 1/2 inch from the edge to give it a little more finished look and put a hanger on the back. I look forward to doing more of these quick and easy little projects and plan to sell some in my Etsy store and at Truly Bluegrass in Versailles.

Lindy~ this is beautiful! Love the moon. The beads are the perfect touch. You are so creative.

I've always been impressed by the way Kentucky Alpaca Breeders are so talented when it comes to fiber arts. A little birdy told me you are to thank for a lot of that.

Thanks for sharing this with Fiber Arts Friday!

Just found your blog while looking for info about Norm Evans.

They're some nice looking animals you have there.
