Old man winter has finally showed up here in the Northwest. We had a light dusting of snow on the ground yesterday morning and this morning. It was a very wet snow and not as pretty as a blanket of snow, so I don’t have any snow pictures. It is supposed to get really chilly next week – in the teens at night and barely above freezing during the day. We haven’t felt like spending any more time then we have to outside.
My son has been playing with his trains – he has a lot of trains 😉
Paisley has been laying in front of the fire – yes, she is wearing jammies and has a blanket covering her laying in front of a very warm fire. A girl after my own heart 😉
Danica has been taking the sites in – she likes to be outside, even when it is cold. She is a busy girl and doesn’t have time to lay in front of the fire!
and I have been felting. I have always admired people that can paint – I certainly CANNOT, but I have found that I can paint with fiber 🙂 This isn’t done quite yet. It still needs a blanket stitch around the edge and a couple ribbon loops on the top for hanging it. It measures 12″ x 24″.
I love the playfulness of this one!
I have my fiber products at a local farm store and these 2 pieces will be headed there. I made 2 felted vests as well, one was a custom order and the other one was for the store, but I delivered those yesterday and I forgot to take pictures.
I have been working on a large wall hanging – 3′ x 4′ – for a Christmas present. I will post pictures afterwards, I don’t want to spoil it 🙂
and this is the wall hanging that I hope to get done for our house. It is also a big one and my husband’s comment was that I have my work cut out for me!
Of all the fiber crafts I have tried, I definitely enjoy felting the most!
Your wall hangings are WONDERFUL–that elk one is AWESOME!! You are truly a woman of many talents!
I agree! They are just beautiful!
I agree, the one with the elk is fantastic. I haven’t done any felting yet but it looks like there is no end to what you can make. How fun…….
I’m definitely with Paisley. Kylie is with Danica!:) I absolutely LOVE your elk felting….I need to get down there to take some lessons from you!!!
Hmmm… Can you do a red dun, a grulla, and a dark dun running through the forest with mountains in the background? 😉 These are so awesome, I may have to have a personalized one done for me! 😀
Great felt! I know we’re not as cold as you are, but it’s all relative. Still feels cold to me. When I go out in the shop the last few mornings it’s in the low 40’s inside. I turn on a heater and go away for a few hours.
There is nothing more wonderful than spending the cold winter days INSIDE with loved ones, and being able to keep busy doing things we love.
Your felting is beautiful and you have inspired me ! Enjoy this time with your son and his trains..and stay in your jammies while you felt up your fiber art, I want to see pictures as your felting progresses. Please ?
Hey, in case you ran out of things to blog about… 🙂 I tagged you for the “Sixth Picture” tag. Come on over and see what it’s all about. 😀
One more thing… I think I found a new WordPress theme that looks like you. I think it’s on the 5th page and it’s name is “Toni.” It reminded me of you I think because it’s blue… You seem to like blue a lot. 😉
