A Bit of Creativity

My creativity has been working "off and on" since the start of quarantine.  Some days I just don't feel it.  But some days, I go into gear and do things.

In the last couple of days, I have sewn more of the random piecing bits together.
Those bright and happy colors soothe my soul and help me to find peace within myself.  So it is a good thing!

I have also been doing more spinning fiber into yarn. (If only it were "straw into gold.")  My bobbin in filling up nicely.
In fact,  I wove up all of the rolags that I prepared and showed in the last post.  So I needed to make more of them.   It occurred to me that I had more silk fiber somewhere. If only I could find it!
I started to look for it and didn't get as deep into the search as I expected.  Why?  Because it was right there waiting for me.

I pulled all of it out of the plastic bags it was shipped in to show you.
It isn't all that pretty wadded up like that, but I knew it would be so nice blended with the bamboo fibers and made into more rolags.  This time I also added in some white "faux angora" - it is a super soft nylon fiber that spins nicely. 

I pulled out the blending board and started playing with fiber.  Fun fun FUN!  Before too long I had made these rolags for my next time at the spinning wheel.

I hope you can see how shiny these are. I love the wide variety of colors in this batch of rolags.  I will have lots of fun spinning them into yarn for more weaving.

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

All of the colors on this post made my mouth water...LOL! So cheerful and fun. I know what you mean about being off and on with creativity. I have been so "off" lately that I recently read four books five days. So NOT what I want to be doing. Maybe it has been the heat or maybe the pandemic is finally getting to me.
