A big box of goodies arrived - a present to myself from Meinke Toy: Art Supplies! Oh, it's like Christmas all over again. : ))) I replenished some things I was low on. I got more hand felting needles. Mine are getting so dull. I also got some new supplies they added to their shop that I think are really cool! One is 'art yarns', and one is fibre batting. Check it out!

I have a new friend who spins. She was telling me about what she makes, saying there are weird bits in them, and wondering if I might not like that. *Oh I like that!* I think these are just what fibre artists want.
So - the batting. See it underneath in the last photo? I chose it, thinking it would be good for winter backgrounds. This colorway was called 'teacake'. I think I might pull some of the green out and use the other whisps to work into my scenes. Or maybe I will spin it? Really - the possibilities are endless. I think that's what attracted me to it. There's even angelina fibres in it. mmmmm. Shiny.
And these - sigh. I just love the mixed threads so much. These are great for postcards I think. I also got a separate package from Meinke Toy - BUT IT'S A SECRET. I am going to make something with it first and then I will show you. Eleanor said, 'shhhhhh'. I feel like I'm working in Santa's workshop. It's kind of awesome. : )
