A busy week

I managed to get quite a bit of felting done this week. I made a cover for the handle of my teapot so I can stop burning my fingers.

I discovered my felt background for a picture I am making was in the dryer way to long and was completely felted. I guess I turned it onto a longer time than I thought.  Had to redo it.  Here is the redone one.

I also made the prefelts for the buildings.


I got the wool laid out on the silk for a shawl. the first picture is the orange and yellow wool down but you can see some of the silk background. then I added several shades of purple. I think it looks like a sunset storm.

And lastly on the felting front I worked on dryer balls. here they are ready to go in the washer.

But most important thing this week my granddaughter was born. Here is Autumn, all 9 lbs 9 oz. of her.

    A very productive week Ann and a new grandaughter to boot! The shawl colours are beautiful, as you say a stormy sunset.

  5. Ann, you really have been productive! Wow! Great idea to felt the handle of your tea kettle.
    And a big welcome to Autumn, such a sweet baby.

    I may not always comment, but I do enjoy the newsletter! I would never have thought of felt as a handle cover, but makes perfect sense!
    Congratulations on the new baby and thanks for all you do for us in the felting wofld!

    Congratulations Ann and welcome Autumn, she’s a cutie. I saw the tea handle on the forum, love the colors. I also love the name Sunset Storm for the scarf. Great colors. You have been busy.

    Congratulations on the arrival of your new granddaughter, now you have a new person to make felt for 🙂 The colours in the scarf are gorgeous, even before reading your text, my first thought was vibrant sunset. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    Congratulations and isn’t she beautiful! Your sunset shawl will be lovely, and I love the tea kettle handle. That is so clever!

    • Thank you. She is adorable isn’t she. I plan to make some handle covers for sale. I will have to include how to sew instructions too. That will be the hardest part.

    The shawl colours are gorgeous, Ann, and I love your teapot aswell as the handle 🙂 Do you drink ‘proper’ tea made with tea leaves? And Autumn is lovely too!

    • Thanks Zed. The teapot came with one of the little strainer basket inserts so yes I do drink real loose leaf tea. I like the little pot so I can make “funny” tea no one else in the house will drink. LOL
