Between recuperating and traveling, I haven’t done much heavy felting lately.
I have been doing some small projects to try to stay in touch with fibers.
The one felt project I did do was to make some felted rocks for my son Matt in Florida. Last time he visited us, he was intrigued by the felted rocks I keep in the guest bathroom in a crystal dish that was my mother in laws. Since I had made his wife, Lia, a clutch purse, I thought I would do something for him.
I didn’t find the right dish before I brought them down there, but will look on our next trip.
While I was doing a little felting, I decided to try felting some soaps. I had never done it before and had bought several bars of Yardley soaps. (Purple and Blue on top.)
One was English lavender and the other aloe. Both were very fragrant to the point I had to put them in another room to dry. Too perfumy for my taste.
I have a small pillow I use to sit on at my vanity. I had some matching old sheets and decided to make two covers for them. Yes, I could have felted a cover, but I wasn’t ready. Besides I feel guilty about my Pfaff sewing machine sitting idle. So, I cut out two cases, stitched them and added a design just for fun.
What projects have you been working on since the New Year started?
