Batt-sh*t Crazy!

We have a cheeky expression that we use here in Philadelphia...


                           ...when talking about someone who is certifiably insane.



                                          We say that they are 'batsh*t crazy'!! :)



                                                 Well, I am crazy about batts...



                                           ...and I love having them on hand...



                           ...because they can really streamline the felting process...



                                                  ...and make layouts a snap!



                                        Using rumpled, tatty bits of leftover wool...





                                                      ...plus dyed tussah silk...





                                                      ...Angelina or Firestar...




                                                             ...dyed nepps...


                                                     

                                                              ...silk noil...




                                                          ...cotton sliver...




                                                                ...mohair...





                                                                   ...yarn...




                                                   ...and little pieces of pre-felt... 




                                            ...I used my trusty Pat Green carder...



                                              ...to fashion a big pile of art batts!


                                                           Here they all are...                                     


                                             ...just waiting for the right project!

Isn't it wonderful to be able to look at a stockpile of supplies and wonder what you're going to make with it...

It looks like someone is preparing for some fun projects sometime soon. :)
