Fiber Feast!

What could be better than receiving two packages thru the mail service, each package containing two 4 0z. rovings--three are Mountain Colors, 100% Targhee Top; colorways: Alpine, Crazy Woman and Northern Lights. One Roving of Lorna's Laces, shepherd wool top, superwash (great for socks). These were destash roving packages from Taos Sunflower! What a wonderful selection of colors! Now, have to find the time to spin! Still working on the April yarn from Art Work paintings.






While in Loveland, we stopped in the Loveland Museum to view Northern Colorado Weavers Guild's 2009 Fiber Celebration exhibit. This exhibit is juried and held every year around the region. We sponsor one of the prizes awarded. The winner for our cash prize was Linda Friedman Schmidt from New Jersey with her hooked piece using discarded clothing. Too bad, but museum would not allow photos; you can see photos of the pieces along with award winners at NCWG's website.http://www.fortnet.org/NCWG/FiberCeleb09Awards.htm
It was definitely a Fiber Feast of a day!
