A person who is batsh*t crazy is certifiably nuts. The phrase has origins in the old fashioned term "bats in the belfry." Old churches had a structure at the top called a belfry, which housed the bells. Bats are extremely sensitive to sound and would never inhabit a belfry of an active church where the bell was rung frequently. Occasionally, when a church was abandoned and many years passed without the bell being rung, bats would eventually come and inhabit the belfry. So, when somebody said that an individual had "bats in the belfry" it meant that there was "nothing going on upstairs" (as in that person's brain). To be BATSH*T CRAZY is to take this even a step further. A person who is batsh*t crazy is so nuts that not only is their belfry full of bats, but so many bats have been there for so long that the belfry is coated in batsh*t. Hence, the craziest of crazy people are BATSH*T CRAZY.
Making so many art batts that the next day your arms and neck are killing you!
Yesterday I had a fiber fun day at my friend Adele's House (http://www.facebook.com/Looliemom)
We went to town on her Fancy Kitty Drum Carder and boy am I sore today!!!
1st Layer of fiber is a mystery wool that Adele had
2nd layer is merino wool
3rd is shetland wool locks from
Final is merino
I packed on so much fiber it was a 3.8 oz batt. I just pick up some fiber, stick it on there, and let it do its thing. All the little teeth on the rollers will align the fiber and blend them together. I say just keep piling it on until its full. I don't have much control over the colors when spinning I just let the fibers spin how they want.
After putting all the layers you want on the drum carter, you then peal the fiber off using the pick like tool (don't think there a name for it) to separate the fibers.
Here you can see all the different layers of the batt
The completed batt!!
I think all of us fiber loving people are a little Battsh*t Crazy sometimes...
