Dear fiber friends,
Do you make New Years Resolutions? I haven’t in a long while but this year I will and the resolutions I would like to share with you are fiber art related.
First, I resolve to manage my time more efficiently and effectively so I can work on my projects more often. More often, because when I am working and moving forward it brings me joy, satisfaction and physical well-being. Living in the cold dark New England area can be challenging to my mental health happiness and this should surely help.
I intend to reuse all my fiber waste in small hit or miss rugs, table toppers and use scraps as backing for pillows and for stuffing. I plan on weaving leftover cut wool strips into my loom projects too.
I plan to explore more ways to use recycled fabrics and fibers into my projects. This should be a fun ongoing project. And the one I’m working on right now is pictured below.
Locally, I hope to bring rug hooking awareness to my immediate area by sharing my knowledge with others through small local classes and events. And lastly, use locally produced wool yarns to support and showcase local farmers.
So, what are your fiber new resolutions for 2019? Chime in and let me know.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative year!
