Warm Woolen Mittens...

Check out this WOOL!
It is gorgeous...clean, soft...oh the possibilities!

Wednesday was a snow day from school
for our kido's~ but I had an appointment!
ONLY NUTS were out there driving around~
:)
No....it was icy early & then turned to rain.
I called the woman who sells wool &
I was able to wait til the roads cleared off.
Nuts.
But not that nuts!


A sweet blogging friend had given me two names
of places that I could purchase wool.
Both looked fantastic...but I always try to buy locally.
I got the courage up to call a person from one of
the MANY packages of wool I already have.
The town is 20 minutes from our home.
Such a sweet gal! I'm so happy I called her~
She was more than happy to sell privately!
24oz. of wool for $30. that's what you see pictured!
WOW!
Stone Edge Fibers
315/548-2032
The family own & raise 20 beautiful sheep.
I should have taken notes...
They have rare breeds, two Alpacas...
I was blown away! They LOVE their animals
and that was equally important for me to know.

A cat-proof way to store my small amounts...
Recycled take-home containers from Olive Garden!


Our sweet, innocent, dear CATS! love to find my
needle felted critters and destroy them!
Birds have beaks ripped out, wings plucked off...
bunny ears scattered about!
***sigh***
Jealousy!
:)


This is a new needle felted friend peeking out of my
felting tool bag...it's about half way finished.

Hope you give the wool gal a call!

LOL, noses ripped off!!! If you are ever down this way, there's a farm called Duck Flats Farm in Elbridge that sells their own home-grown wool you might want to check out, too!

Hey Michelle! I am at the Atlanta show taking a break.....my feet are killin me! I miss you and Diane! I hope next year we can all come to Atlanta and spend some time together. But what I really wanted to say is that I love your needle felting! I have done very little needle felting on wool and have never tried making any critters but it looks like fun! Thanks for the info on where to get that great roving.....if I ever use what I already have I'll have a good source. Blessings to you, Michelle!
