My fibre/fluff challenge #2

Ok , so you take one ball of Mirage and one lump/bump/ball of spinning fibres.

The yarn is a soft twist single so it was untwisted and the colours separated and teased out. The next step is a sort of magic as the machine felts   all the fibres together. Note the guard round the needles that stops you becoming part of the art :-) Next add a few stitches and I think this may be the cover to a new needle case for my embroidery needles.
