Effective...Finally

Remember the spinning wheel my friend in Alaska sent me, along with the fabulous qiviut fiber? I was to paint all sorts of fiber animals on the wheel in exchange for the fiber. Sigh. I finally finished it. (Note, apparently you shouldn't send me a special order request and include the words "Take your time - no hurry." Yeesh.)



I like how the wheel turned out and had fun researching the animals. Now I'm going to go have some fun spinning the qiviut!

It's beautiful! And thank you for the link to qiviut I had no idea what it was, then was surprised to read that the fiber from a musk ox is among the softest! I don't weave, in fact I haven't even knitted or crocheted in well over 30 years, but I have enjoyed learning about fibers on blogs like this.

That shade of green is beautiful with the purple, and you did a great job on the fiber animals (like we expected any less :-)

Keep up the effectiveness! Brian and I entered a felting challenge, so this afternoon we plan to take a "stab" at it (hee; couldn't resist the pun!) for the very first time. Watch him show up his mom at this, too....

That is just beautiful!

What beautiful artwork on her wheel! 24 ( count 'em) animals all balanced in size and space yet different in color and direction. It was a sizable feat to paint all of those little feet! Congratulations on meeting your Effective Goal. Now enjoy your qiviut. You've earned it. :-)

Such a beautiful job you did on that wheel!! I love the way it turned out, and I'm sure the person will be very pleased with it. Sometimes waiting is good, eh?

That is a lovely painting, almost like a mandala. I'm sure she will be pleased!

Never heard of musk ox fiber and silk. Do tell how it spins up!

The wheel is stunning, and YES, SHE LOVES IT already. I had no doubt it'd be fantastic, and didn't mind the wait. It is indeed an heirloom, and with all the Equinox Farm characters on it, it has even more meaning. No anonymous, generic animals here!
Sara, you're amazing.
