Thread Soup

My thread catcher was full to the brim with thread tails, frayed cotton from laundering new fabric, bits of yarn and frayed kimono silk.  There wasn't space to put anymore bits, so I fed the whole blob through the felting machine, surrounded it with cord made with a spool knitter, and this is what came out.  One of these days I'll feel like embroidering it with yarn, ribbon and floss -- that will be fun!
