New Year, New Fabric

No - I'm not going to stop "working in wool", but I just added a new fabric to a couple of my pieces I was working on yesterday. It's recycled burlap coffee-bean bags.

A couple weeks ago, I stopped by a local coffee shop (I don't even drink coffee!) and picked up three big bags for little to nothing.  And I'm having great fun blending the burlap with my wool. However, I have decided that I need to incorporate some fusible interfacing with the burlap because it unravels terribly. (Not to mention it sheds a lot at first - good thing I take special stock in lint rollers.)

Hmmm....maybe I'll share my newest pieces with you tomorrow...

In the meantime, go grab yourself a new year's cup of coffee.
