Lassitude, deadlines and wonderful distractions like mountain vacations have allowed this post to languish since...Sept. 8.
The day was splendid. As you can see, nuno felting was trending at the Salida Fiber Festival. Mr. Nake-id is wearing a wet-felted boa with aplomb. Our Denver neighbor Sandy came home with a gorgeous silk-and-wool wrap (not the one she's displaying above). And Ms. Nake-id. An extravagant hank of Fusion Yarn from Cat Mountain Fiber Arts. The "mallard" colorway. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.
