The Lost Fibres...and a Basket of Warm Wishes...

Another challenge down...
This one was tough. When I first read "The Ways to Use It" challenge was going to be fibres I wanted to cry!!! I don't own fibres. I don't sew. I don't knit. I don't have anything I could use. I found myself wishing I could lose myself in my MIL house because SHE would have just the perfect thing for me. I put my creative thinking hat on and searched the house for fibres. I was determined. Certainly I could find some...maybe that old sweater grandma made that is hanging in my closet, perhaps the threads hanging off the end of my couch (thanks kitties) or how about fibres in the emergency sewing kit I received when I first moved out of the house. I searched and I searched. Then suddenly I remembered doing a swap with someone who had added fibres to her tag. I ran to my stamp room and pulled it out all excited...they were red...back to the drawing board...when suddenly it dawned on me. Not only did I have ONE package of fibres leftover from a holiday decorative class I taught last fall but I had the perfect stamp set to go with it!!!!
With my MIL in my mind, I began a mission to share some fibres with YOU!
