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!
