More Fiber Fun

Once the threads/floss were all sorted it was time to move on to the many fibers that I have 'hanging' around here.  I hang them over dowling -- so just taking them off the dowel can make a mess which has to be straightened. 

Piles of fiber lay before me, stubbornly clinging together as I tried to put them in order.

My goal was to sort into color families and to hang them back neatly back on the rods.

This small wire box holds some yarn fibers that I hope to incorporate into future pieces.  Now, I think I'm ready for whatever ideas come my way.

  1. Sometimes I think that sorting thread is something like herding cats!

  2. I love sorting things - it's very theraputic and so tactile!

  3. Penny, your sorting inspires me to do the same as soon as I finish this project. I'm working on an embroidered crazy patchwork teddy bear so I have lots of threads, beads, ribbons, and lace on my dining-room table. It's a good thing that I'm not expecting company any time soon.

  4. come and sort me out will you?xx l sort my studio out and then within hours it is untidy again..l am hopeless!!!xxlynda

  5. Oh Penny, that looks like such a daunting task - congratulations to you for getting to it!! And I'll be sending you lots of "great success" vibes on Saturday :-))

  6. Seems I'm always catching up, and this comment is no different. What I notice is that you've been working with color, and that's an inspiration to me. Color is my downfall, good at composition, but color not so much. ;)
