Fabulous Family Fiber Fun!

p1080491-copy_edited.jpgWow!  I went to do my gig the Lynnwood branch of the Sno-Isle Regional Library last night and, well, had a blast. My daughter, along with two library volunteers and the Children’s Librarian to assist as well, helped me make felt balls with 32 people!  I was so busy, as were my helpers, that no one even thought about taking pictures.  There were felt balls rolling and bouncing everywhere, with water, soap and lots of great clean fun. The kids found out how hard it was to keep going until the ball was hard, but the smiles of satisfaction were fabulous. I had one little guy who was all of 2 years old, who was soaping and rolling along with all the rest.  This changes my own perspective – sure, the water wasn’t as warm as I get it for feltmaking, but progress was made, and everyone went home with the tools to make the ball harder, and the ability to make more, and everyone was smiling.  It also helped that it was air-conditioned. It was one of thos sweltering days when I was wilting at home, trying to find energy to make this class happen and be exciting and fun. I did, and it was.
