Trials of The Storm
During the worst of the Storm there where clouds above my home that in all the years I have lived here I had never seen. As I held on to the deck I tried to capture a couple of snaps of the monster clouds I kept saying "Your Nuts Grace, GET INSIDE". Within a matter to two snaps the sky turn pure black and the camera just could not capture it so I turned to the carding machine to create what the camera could not... It was as if the end of the world was above me. Now don't ask why I was not in the basement? I did the moment I took the last picture. I sat down there thinking of which fibers I would use to make this batt and when it was clear to come out of the basement I went straight to the carding machine - well, that is after I checked on the animals by flash light.
This batt was created with a Tri Colored Rambouillet Lambs Wool, Tri Colored French Angora Fur, Hand Painted Purple Haze Silk and Kettle Dyed Chopped Silk. This batt is so soft that I admit when I completed it I spent some time just holding it - So So So - well just SO!!!
