The Dreaded Stash!

If you are a creative person then you are probably like me! You have an unlimited amount of stash supplies on hand. Yarn, roving, ribbon, lace, fabric…YIKES where does it end?? I am feeling very overwhelmed again; especially since I have to do my year end inventory soon! UGHHH

So for 2020 I have committed myself to using up what I have and only buy the most essential things! I know…easier said then done. But I have signed up for several shows for 2020…more then usual. I need to finally make money at this business or I have told my hubby that I’m going to hang it up. Does that mean I will be entirely done? UH NO! I will always have something going on….LOL

So I went to my favorite place….Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/anitashomepsun/ for inspiration. It did not take long to find many ideas.

WEAVING! I saw these wall hangings and thought…hmmmm…maybe?

I M A G I N E weaving and learning how to dye wool in the beautiful southern highlands. Natalie’s studio, Green Bridge studios is in Moss Vale wher...

What attracted me to them was the wool roving! I have sooooo much of it in just about every color there is. Plus I have so much fiber that I can card and make my own roving if I needed to…..How fun would this be! Here is a link showing a weaving technique with roving; https://www.theweavingloom.com/weaving-techniques-twinning-wool-roving/

One thing lead to another (you know how that goes when on Pinterest!) and I saw yarn art. Did I mention I have a lot of yarn>>>

That lead me to this….Dip-Dye Wall art.

HOW COOL IS THIS! MUST TRY!!!!! http://www.prettypennyblog.com/2017/06/diy-how-to-make-dip-dyed-wall-hanging.html?m=0

Weaving isn’t new to me and I have done macrame and dyeing before; so looks like I may have a direction. My goal is to create art pieces that I can not only sell but also make kits for smaller versions to sell to the fiber community and teach classes!

All of these projects would also be kid friendly and a great way to get the younger generation involved in the arts! Now that I like.

Happy Creating!
