I'm having to cut myself off from doing any more swaps or art projects and focus, focus, focus. Must spin more yarn.... The top peice was for a local art show called "Talking Trash" where trash had to be used in the composition. The little matchbox with ATC's was a swap I could not resist participating in as well as the mail art where you had to make your own envalopes in addition to the art. Now- Back to the wheel and to pimping out the yarn shop.

Animals Smell When Wet was a spin challenge recently posted by Pluckyfluff on her blog. The idea was to create a yarn the was either water proof or water resistent without using any animal fibers. Starting today, folks can vote for their favorite entry at http://pluckyfluff1.livejournal.com/ The winning spinner will receive a skein of yarn Pluckyfluff spun that provided the inspiration for this challenge. The materials I used to create my yarn include a water resistant jacket, vintage oil cloth, polar fleece hat, plastic coated wires, plastic bag and a foam packing sheet. Please drop by Pluckyfluff's blog to vote as well as http://www.yarnmuseum.com/ to see more photos of all the entries.
