Black Sheep Gathering is full of fiber arts and inspiration!!!
I started my Spinner’s Lead entry several months ago, but I was still working on it Thursday morning – just a few hours before leaving.
As you can see, I had a lot of little helpers – too bad they couldn’t sew snaps on. They were using the excuse of no thumbs…
Here is my finished jacket. I entered it in the Fiber Arts division and it placed second in the felted division.
My son entered his felted snake in the Pee Wee division and won 1st place and then went on to win Reserve Champion in the whole felted division…
right behind this entry. I was in awe! It was felted by a 14 year old that also raises Jacobs.
Here is the back – I love the sea turtle.
Thanks to a few good friends, I have some pictures of us in the Spinner’s Lead class.
These pictures are from Joan at Mud Ranch.
While I was wet felting the fabric for my jacket, my son felted his scarf. He very proudly told everyone that he wet felted it and that his sheep was a ram 🙂
This picture is a little blury, but you can see the different colors in my jacket. The back is a beautiful hue of brown, the front is cream, and the sleeves are a brownish gray. I used the fleece from Symphony and am walking Symphony’s sister, Infiniti.
They limited the Spinner’s Lead class to 20 this year, last year there were 30 entries!!!
To see individual pictures of the entries, visit Michelle’s blog.
This entry was the winner. She knit it!!! She copied the watercolor picture from her farm sign. It was amazing.
This piece is my inspiration for next year’s Spinner’s Lead class. I best get started now.
