“Moonlight and Laughter” friends…fibers and more

all thanks to Susan of Rosie Inspirations for getting me back into needle felting AND to my friend, Marilla, who has an online shop where she sells the most gorgeous hand dyed fibers and yarn…

I was really intrigued by her Hand Dyed Milk Fibers (top left)…

here is what she says about them in her Moonlight and Laughter etsy shop :

“Milk fiber is made from casein, which is a milk protein. It is extremely soft and silky. It also has wicking properties similar to wool, so is great for socks and summer garments.”

SO soft and silky I just had to use some on my latest felted journal cover

and on some ATCs

with another chance to use some of the wire bird nests I made so many of a while ago…

Marilla’s Angelina Fibers help add that certain something…

some of you may know that I resisted joining Facebook for a long long time…

finally at the end of last year I caved and signed up…

one of the brilliant outcomes of that was reconnecting with my dear friend Marilla…

we met many many years ago and formed a deep bond…

my long lost special BFF was found again…

here’s to old friends and new friends…

creativity and sharing

…life is sweet…

    Anyway, I love your ATCs, they look so pretty with your nests 🙂

  12. oh and i hope you enjoy fb and use it for good 😉 i joined early on, and found that it just wasn’t the right fit for me. i deleted my account, and my blog was born soon after. those things may or may not have been related, but i hope you make more connections that bring you closer to the things you love.

  32. These are perfect. I’m so very impressed with all the ATCs and your needlefelting skills. BTW, I can’t believe you still have some of those bird nests. You truly must have made a gaggle of them (grin). And yes, I’m late getting here, but I can’t seem to crawl out from under this huge to-do list.
