What I've Been Up to This Weekend

 On Friday, my local fiber group met at my house. We talked about line and did an exploratory marks exercise. Using a variety of objects, we used walnut ink to make various lines. The point was to try and make as many different kinds of line as possible.
 This is the box of "tools" that we used to make our lines.
 Here's the group busy nuno felting with their sanders. None of them had nuno felted before so I was kept busy helping out. I didn't make anything but they all made scarves. Sadly, I didn't manage to get any other photos. But a good time was had by all.
 Here are some cards that I made with the marbled paper that I made last month.
I think I'll add some more to these but I had them cut to the right size so I glued them on to the cards.
 And a few more.
 This is the other thing I've been doing. Stocking up on cat toys. Need to have them ready for all those Christmas shoppers.
 All nice and fuzzy in bright colors!
I made a flat piece of felt and added silk noil on the top. I'm going to be making Christmas ornaments and presents out of this so more on this later. It was really hard to get a decent photo and this one is still pretty blurry. Hope you all had a nice weekend!
