Two weekends ago, my LQS (Olde Green Cupboard) had their annual Fall Festival. They featured several fiber arts besides quilting. I found the Needle Punch interesting. You work from the wrong side. It does not seem difficult but maybe I'm thinking it looks easier than it is.
They also had Wool Rug Hooking. My favorite. Here is my friend Melody (well only Melody's hands) giving a demonstration. Check out her bracelet. It's stunning! She wanted me to try out a bit of wool hooking. I figured out she was in full enabler mode and to try it would be dangerous waters for me. So I resisted. One day though, I'm going to take her up on it and it will all be over.
There are certainly many very talented fiber artists in my area and I'm lucky enough to call several of them friends. A year and a half ago, I had no interests outside of my family and work. My life has really been enriched these past 18 months in ways I didn't think possible. I'm very grateful for that!
