Handwarmers!

I love handwarmers.  Fingerless gloves.  Wristwarmers.  I wear them all winter for driving, for working outside, for typing in my sometimes cold studio. . . I used to buy them.  Then I learned to crochet, and everyone I knew got fingerless gloves for Christmas.  (Sorry, family!) Now, I’m felting them....

2016 Christmas Showcase

  Just finished up from the 38th Arkansas Craft Guild Annual Christmas Showcase in Little Rock, and I had my best show ever!  Thanks to everyone that came out despite the drizzly weather.  And thanks for the votes for my booth!  I won 2nd place!

Finally!

I have finally added the Felting A Fleece tutorial to the site!  You can find it here: Felting a Fleece; My way, not the only way  Check it out and let me know what you think!    

A website at last!!!!

Sharing with the neighbors

We had a recent windstorm, and I was cleaning up  from it when I found this empty nest that had blown down.  Looks like someone has been borrowing some of my wool–I see bits of at least 4 different fleeces in there!

“Stick a needle in my eye. . .”

I have been experimenting with making pin cushions from wet-felted wool.  So far I’ve made geodes, a felted “rock” (not shown), a sheep, and, well, eyeballs: What do you think?

Motherhood

I returned from my trip to my oldest boy telling me that he wanted to be Benjamin Franklin for Historical Character Day tomorrow at school. At  9:00 P.M.  When he should have been in bed and I was already wishing I was. Now, I should get a pass on not knowing...

Fun Felting–Coyote Tail for a Costume

Here is a fun little volunteer project I did for our local elementary school–a coyote tail and ears: The kids loved it–it was my first tail, but I think I will be making more of them!

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. . .

I’ve been away from the studio for the past week, helping my dad while he’s recovering from a hip replacement, and have really missed it. Yesterday, I decided to try felting in the hospital room.  (Yes, I was desperate.)  Fortunately, nurses are hard to phase, and once they realized that it...
