Fiber Arts Friday - Eye Candy

Since I haven't done much fiberish work this week to share for Fiber Arts Friday, I thought I'd share some other folks' fiber art that I've seen on Flickr.

Karna Erickson (eanie meany on Flickr and Cocoon Designs on Etsy) makes these fantastic recycled fabric houses, plus stuffie creatures and other fun things.


Chandra LaMorte (aliastriona on Flickr) has a very distinctive color palette. Whether she's posting photos of her knitting or dessert, I can usually recognize which thumbnail image is hers in my list of recent uploads from my Flickr contacts.


I think I had originally come across Joyful Lova's photostream because of her Studio inspirations photoset where she had collected clippings & ideas for organizing sewing studio space. But I was quickly distracted by all her colorful sewing projects (totes, organizers, purses, oh my!) and interesting collections of fabrics (see her photosets). Her blog lists her on-line shops as well.

Hmmm... maybe I'd better stop here in case I have to do this again next week with! Share and enjoy!

Great idea - I don't look for new quilters on Flickr like I do on Twitter and through blogs. Guess I need to check it out!

Chandra - well, thank YOU for sharing all your colorful stuff (I learned the term "yarn p0rn" from your photostream, I think....)
