Joining the World of Technology

 Lest I be left behind in this wonderful world of technology, I am tentatively entering the world of blogging.  My adult kids may fall down in amazement and make rude comments about old dogs learning new tricks, but every once in a while I have to suprise them just to remind them I'm still the Queen of "No!" 
It used to be "No, you may not have a can of soda" or "No, you may not stay until past 11.30pm" and "No, I do not think $89 is a reasonable price to pay for tennis shoes.. even if they do have a fancy little check mark on the side!"

Now it has to be "No, you may not show me how easy it is to buy shoes on the internet", or "No, I am quite happy with my old phone.  No, I do not need something smaller that I can't see the numbers, just because it takes photographs, has 159 different ring options, and keeps track of what's going moldy in my refrigerator!"

Ain't it great to be 55 and still able to take care of myself!... with a little technical assistance from my delightful husband... okay.. a LOT of technical assistance.

As the owner of Outback Fibers, life has been great these past 15 years as I've worked to grow my business into a successful little venture that has allowed me the freedom to work from home, handling luscious fibers all day, and helping people discover the wonderful addiction that is felting.
ProFusion Has Arrived!

This week the first shipment of ProFusion arrived.  The quality is great.  This product is one of the most useful items available for creative felting.  I know many fiber artists who have been using pre-felts in their design process and in creating wonderful art and saleable products.

Check it out on the website at and feel free to call me if you have any questions.


  1. Welcome to the world of more things to do!.!! I've always wondered what 'home' looked like!


  2. You are amazing Jill! Thanks for bringing us those luscious fibers and teaching so many to felt!

  3. Yes! welcome to the biggest time eater on earth! But I will check back to see what's going on! My flower quilt made with prefelts is coming along.

  4. Yes, Welcome Jill. Nice to have a face to go with a name I have known since I started felting. I love your writing about the kids...I get the same thing and refuse to use my cell phone for anything that is not really necessary in my opinion. The fact that I have to keep the instructions with me shows how often I use it.
    BTW I love the prefelts.
