Fiber Art Finds!

Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited to show you the fun finds Melanie and I got at the Fiber Art Show in Longmont, CO last week. :)

The Handweavers Guild of Boulder has a show every year and it is one of our favorites!

Melanie and I found the cutest things! :)
Here are Mel's purchases...

A hand knit Santa doll

A felted snowman

and a felted gnome ornament!
I got this wonderful handwoven orange and black pillow for my desk chair.
I like how it looks infront of the purple woven scarf I got last year.

and I also got a smaller one for my sewing chair!

and last but not least, a crazy woven doll that matches the one I got last year!
We had so much fun that we picked up 2 applications to join the guild this year. It will be so exciting to have Melanie's felted teddy bears in the 2010 show!

What fun things are you planning for 2010? I cannot beileve it is almost here! :)

OH i LOVE all of your finds! Melissa, i have been making knitted "people" out of the Mother Bear pattern, just without the ears and tail! hahaha I LOVE that Santa dolly! I am afraid if i went to that show my friends would have to hold me down i would be so excited! I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to handmade toys! :)
