Bits and Pieces
This week has been about getting things moving towards upcoming shows. I spent an afternoon wrapping soap in wool and putting them in little nylon bags ready to felt.
I sent another afternoon getting sheep parts ready to felt. The body parts are roughly needle felted then wet felted. The legs are wet felted.
This is what they look like when they are all put together and their wool is added.
Lastly I have been soaking a fleece. I have no idea what kind of wool it is. it was a bag given to me a couple of years ago. Here it is getting a rain water rinse hanging in my apple tree. That wasn’t on purpose but the thunderstorm came in before I got it back into a bucket for its first rinse.

You had me worried for a minute when you said you had been getting ‘sheep parts ready to felt’. It was a relief to see the cute and clever result. I love them. Liz
That’s funny Liz. I am glad you like them.
I’m with lizseville, you had me wondering about those sheep parts. They are adorable. I’m sure they will be a popular item along with the soaps at the show. I can’t wait to see what you do with the mystery wool. Good luck with your projects.
I never felt my lamb chops. LOL. the mystery wool should be interesting. I will have to do a sample to see if it felts down hard or ends up spongy. I hope it is spongy then I will try making a rug.
Busy, busy! Love the little sheep!
Yes its a busy time of year. They are trying to get the hay in between the thunderstorms. I do not have a job for the summer so I hope I can get ahead with my things for the fall shows.
Ha! I was wondering about the sheep parts too! You have been busy, the soaps look great. 🙂 Are you doing similar coloured sheep to the ones pictured?
Lol, yes they will be multi coloured. Their bodies are either black or white. people seem to like them and they are willing to buy them even when the temperature is soring.
The little sheep are so adorable. I really like that wool wrapped soaps. How clever.
Thank you Judy I will take a picture of the soap when they are done.
I love the sheep! The curly wool and the colours you’ve used – or should I say ‘ewesed’ – works so well!
Awww Ann I love those sheep, I need a bright orange one lol the soaps are very cool 🙂
Thanks Karen. You could make a sheep yourself you know.
I know I could but it just wouldn’t be the same lol I might just have to play again 🙂
I really like those sheep! You’re very organised so the shows will go well.
Thanks Lyn but organise is not one of the words I use to describe myself.
