May Phat Fiber Theme ” Blossoms and Bark”

This month,  the boxes are going to be bursting with color. I have seen on Ravelry the pics of the contributors with great fibers, and rainbows of colors. You can also see the video of all the contributors on Youtube. Mine is in the video number two. My samples consist of Milk Protein Fiber and the colorway is Bougainvillea.

This is a flower that I’m very familiar with. As a child I remember my mom planting the tree near my window. It grew into a big tree, until a few years ago, a hurricane got rid of it. My mom never plant another one. By the way, people also plant this tree near their fences, because it keeps thieves away. Nobody wants to get caught up in between their terrible thorns.

I will have the full size for sale at my shop by tomorrow. And there is a surprise coming up soon, so stay tuned…

February Phat Fiber Theme: Master Painters

I knew I had to work with Frida Kahlo’s palette. I had visited her Casa Azul in Mexico City a few years ago. The place is converted into a museum and filled with her personal belongings and walls painted in cobalt blue. Frida Kahlo was born in that  same house and lived with husband Diego Rivera. So, I decided to work with Milk Protein Fiber because it takes the dyes so intensely…like Frida’s paintings…

And here are my fibers ready to be sent to the Phat Fiber’s headquarters. Do you want to know when the box samples goes on sale? Go here: http://phatfiber.com/notifyme.htm.

I’m hoping I can have the time to work with the real size roving very soon. It has been raining a lot and everything gets too long to get dry. Meanwhile I was able to work on some carded batts and post them in my Etsy shop.

This is Springtime. Blend of merino, silk, angelina, milk protein fiber and more fun stuff. I think I’m starting to get tired of foggy days and wet days, I need color!

This is Prenup. Or should I have called it “Worst case scenario”? Blue Face Leicester with Milk Protein Fiber, angelina, merino. Fun stuff…

Facemask. Merino, Firestar, Angelina.

Still Life. Another wonderful blend of Merino, but this time a add some Masham which is a crossbreed between Teeswater sheep and Dalesbred.

Shop updated…After reshooting once again!

Yesterday I lost all my pictures including the latest pics that I took of my new roving. I had to do it all over again. I really don’t mind doing it again, but I can’t stop thinking of the pictures I lost of my family and special moments with friends. I’m still hoping that they are somewhere in that little box that contains my external drive. Oh well..

On the other hand, I got my shop updated with new colorways and fibers. I’m so happy with the results. I have Milk Protein Fiber, and a wonderful blend of 63% Kid Mohair 12% Nylon and 25% Merino wool. Both new to my shop. The Mohair blend is sooooo soft and for some reason I keep saying it is so silky.
