Something actually fiber related!

I know I know shocking isn't -she actually DOES something will all the fiber she's amassed here. Today's project was finishing off a silk fusioned silk cap formed over a bowl. When dried it was embelished with handspun angora-border collie yarn for the brim with a jaunty little floral embellishement made from needle-felting and then embroidered onto the hat. Its my entry for this years St Distaff competition here -the theme this year is "St Distaff in Fashion."
I'll post a picture of my model in residence "Lindsay" later on!

no it started life as a silk cap that has been "felted" into shape I did spin the yarn that is the ribbon around the brim. Then i needlefelted the flower accent and embroidered it onto the hat :)
