fighting with my subconscious

I seem to have a fair bit of roving around here, and I'm not a spinner (yet.) Note to subconscious - NOT "YET". I am not a spinner! (yet.) sigh...

Whatever, I have roving, and I'm not spinning it. (yet).

So what to do? well, there's always needle felting. I have needle felting kits that I have bought, and I just got this book, and I thought I'd try one thing, just to use up some of the roving here. Yeah, I'm intrigued. Actually, beyond intrigued. I kind of wish I had sucked at needle felting, because then I could justify giving away the roving to a spinner (wait, you'll try spinning.)
I didn't even start with the first, easy project, I jumped right to the cutest one, three quarters of the way through the book. Because then I would make a mess of it, and give up, and give away the roving. (No, you need it for spinning.)The problem? I didn't suck, I really liked doing it, and I have the cutest sheep EVER in my possession, and all I can think of it how many more I can make, and then there's the birds, and the turtle, and oh, the penguins!!!

yup. I'm a lost cause...

(But Wellington Fibres is coming to your Guild meeting on Tuesday, and they are bringing fibre and spindles! Perfect for learning to spin!)

I hate my subconscious...

I nominated your blog for a Kreative Blog Award yesterday and here you have two posts in a row neatly demonstrating one of my favourite things about your blog - vicarious crafting - needle felting one day and then beads the next! Almost like it was scripted!

That is the most adorable sheep ever. And if you've got roving, you've just got to spin it. How else are you going to clear your stash? (You can always weave what you spin.)
