8220 24th Street SE, Lake Stevens, Washington (just above Seattle) Saturday, January 5, 2013 Open 10 til 4pm.
KNITTING SHEEP & ALPACA: In their antique & vintage handmade lace shawls, collar, and socks. Ladies of a certain age gazing thru bifocals at their tiny stitches, cast upon gold-plated spiral needles (the Bluefaced Leicester is a yearling ewe, with sharper vision). Resting comfortably on felted tuffet seats, the gals gab about their New Year’s knitting projects. Come to St. Distaff’s Day Spin-In to see them in person!
RECLINING SUFFOLK SHEEP, bedecked in beautiful blooms. Sturdy dense felted core, covered in curly locks. Felted legs are not wired. German hand-blown glass eyes give her gaze an extra sparkle!
SWEET TRIO OF EASTER CHICKS: from our Deja’ Wool line of Up-cycled, re-purposed, felted knit woolens ~ because good woolens never die, they get reincarnated! Vintage & antique handmade laces, wired legs. Dainty, delicate darlings!
SWEET EASTER CHICKS: (left): Version 2.0 has sturdier wired legs than the prototype (right) perched on pipe-cleaner legs. All future chicks will have these finer legs. These Easter chicks are not meant for small children, but instead to be admired in a secure Easter decor location.
MILK CHOCOLATE EASTER RABBITS – are you ready for Easter? These special bunnies are made of snugly felted Cashmere! Hand-stitched details & rice-weighted bottoms make these bunnies SAFE for small children.
ACORN SPINNING WHEEL BAGS: Bodies of shimmery Merino & silk, with beaded or embroidered sliding caps. Acorn bags are sized to hold wheel oil & orifice hooks and still have room for those stray fluffs during spinning. Or maybe a small snack?
FELTED ACORN BAGS: with felted , stitched leaves on 2 sides, & sliding caps. Sized to hold wheel oil and orifice hooks.
MORNING GLORY BAGS: beautiful felted blooms and vines that wildly wander where they will.
SHEEP-In-The-ORCHARD bags: Needle-felted sheep frolic among the beaded & embroidered Trees
