We (mostly my brother) are making great progress towards my Fiber Studio. He has been working for most of the week on my shelves and they are wonderful!
I am so happy with them!
He found these great door handles at a local recycling place. He is also working on a work table that will be reversible, one side for wet felting and the other side for dry felting.
I had fun playing around and putting some bumps of roving on the shelves, now I need to get serious and figure out how I am going to lay it out. The picture on the top shelf was painted by my other brother, here is a close up.
I would love to sell it for him and am going to look into reproducing it for cards and smaller prints. In the meantime, I am enjoying it in the studio!
Ramsey, the jacob ram, is no longer lonely – meet Sarah the sassy show sheep.
and Shiloh, the shetland ram.
These little birds are tweet and twitter and will be hanging out in the studio as well.
I have found suppliers for the products that I need to start classes and have a rough draft of the classes I would like to teach. There is a lot more on my ‘to do’ list, but I feel like good progress is being made.
I ADORE that paiting your brother did! What an awesome card that would make… You have SUCH a talented family! And the shelving is awesome… You are well on your way! Again, sure wish I lived closer. 🙂 Great job on your feltings, they are so cute.
Oops, too late at night, I meant “painting!”
Wow, looks fabulous! I love that painting too! Sassy is adorable – they’re all adorable! Way to go!
Wow, you are getting very good and felting animals. When I’m down your way I will have to come by and see your new shop. I love the birds, ADORABLE.
Hey Shannon…do you ever sleep! Personally, as cute as he is…I bet Ramsey would rather you spend your time making him more ewes then Shetland rams! Very fun seeing you and Theron this weekend. Save me some note cards!
LOOOVE the KEY”EWE”T painting! Put me on the print list!! (unless you are going really exclusive and waaay expensive-then put me on the note-card list)
I am GREEEN over that studio! the room oozes creativity and SPACE! very nice!
My goodness, girl, you are amazingly talented. When I first scrolled by the birds, I thought you’d slipped in photos of the real thing. Love the idea of making cards of Bren’s painting(s). Kev’s doing a great job on your cottage. What a fab place; can’t wait to get to see it.
Thank you for all of the nice comments! This would never be happening without the support that I have received! We are definitely not going exclusive with the prints. We want everyone to be able to enjoy the ‘Modest Sheep’. I talked to a printing company today and will have more details in the very near future…
Seriously–do you sleep? Does anyone in your family sleep? Or do y’all just stay up all night painting, woodworking, felting and canning food? You’re like the Partridge family, except instead of singing and playing instruments, you all craft things!
The shop looks fabulous!
It’s looking really great! Keep posting your progress.
I can’t wait for the Cardigan felted sculptures! Eeee! These are all just too adorable!
My Gramma was a felter, and I have all her supplies packed away. Maybe someday I’ll have to take one of your classes, to learn felt sculpting myself 🙂
Wow! You are progressing at lightning speed!! Classes will be here before I know it!!
