A Fiber Nest

I was planning on posting about my friend Paula’s recent trip to New York City and her visit to several cool fabric shops. But Paula got distracted and didn’t get the photos sent to me. Instead, she sent me photos of a fiber nest that she created. If you’re on the forum, you might know Paula as ‘sula’smom’. Sula is her dog and after a storm, Sula was really interested in something in the yard. Sula’s dad went to check out what was going on and found this:

Baby squirrel was really cold and barely breathing so Paula got him warmed up.

squirrel 007And put him into a nest of fiber. I do know squirrels really like wool because I had one steal my entire bunch of wool I put out for the birds to use for nests.

squirrel 005Isn’t he the cutest little thing?

I hope Paula has all her shots up to date πŸ™‚

dinner 002And now it’s dinner time. I don’t usually post things that aren’t really fiber related but there is the “fiber nest” after all and he was just too darn cute. Yes, I know that you shouldn’t keep wild animals. I’ll let you know the outcome.

Paula sent me more photos as she was trying to get on the forum and couldn’t find her password. So Rocket J or Rocky for short, was helping her.

He’s looking at the forum trying to find her password.



Oh no! What’s that? Animal fibers? What are you doing with animal fibers?



Rocky got spooked by seeing that category animal fibers and had to retreat to the pocket of safety on Paula’s shirt. Time for a little nap.


About ruthlane

When I discovered felting in 2007, I finally found the creative outlet for which I had been searching. I love that the versatility of fiber allows me to β€œplay” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills my creative passion.

    I wonder if animal rescue centres would like variations on bird pods?
