Sometimes when I get bored I go for a long walk. But then sometimes I get bored and decide to spend countless hours in front of the computer looking up things to make me excited abut the world. Today--folks I had the rare opportunity to do both extremely well. I will spare you more pictures of my trail flowers and today focus on the web candy. ATTACK OF THE KILLER MOLDY DOILY!
I found an interesting site where these women all over the world were given yarns /fiber threads to create an original piece. They designed unique freeform knit pieces for a collaborative art show.
61 fiberartists, all members of the International Freeform Artist’s Guild were given a unique challenge. Each artist selected one yarn and sent 61 five-yard skeins of that yarn to a central location. In return each artist received 61 different skeins from fellow artists all over the world. There was no coordination of color, texture, or any other artistic components. The Challenge was to create their own interpretation of fiber art using only those yarns. Artists include members from Australia, Canada, Estonia, Greece, Ireland, Kuwait, UK, US, Wales and Yemen.
Ok here is the book to get you started. Go buy some silky threads, glitter fuzzy yarns, and a rocking chair and then get back to me with the results. I'd love to cover my entire wall in these pod like webby things.
