A sheep drowned in my bathtub or what I did this weekend

I have had this fleece for ages and have been putting off washing it. Not a good plan. I washed it on Friday and even though it is significantly cleaner, it is still full of vegetable matter. It still has a lot of work to go. This is the reason you should buy processed wool - it is more expensive but you won't have your husband telling you that a sheep drowned in your bathtub!

I am also working on Christmas ornaments for two exchanges.

These are from fused silk paper.

And this is fuzzy photo of another part of the ornament. A few more embellishments, put it all together and "presto", ornament finished.
