The miracle of fluffing

Check this out - this is bamboo roving. When it dried it looked like this.


Then we worked with it a little and fluffed it up so it looked like this!!!


Here it is braided.



Also, check out these GREAT face bowls that Mr. Man has done!!! These aren't glazed yet but I can't wait to see how they look when they are done! I love the sheep one.

Well Colleen - I can't wait to see what it looks like glazed! I will let you know when it is up. It will probably be early next week. I don't think it will be warm enough for him to glaze until Thursday!

Three cheers for drafting. Those bowls are awesome! :)

Oh and I may have a chum looking for your bowls with lids...she has this cat who has begun attacking her stash with ferocity.
