Making some progress and free give away reminder

I want to remind everyone you only have a few days left to enter the free draw for a spot in Terri’s Concertina Hat Class. The last day to enter is July 28. Just follow the link.

I finished my triangle scarf this week.

There wasn’t that much shrinkage as it is very cobwebby on the wool side.

I finished the prefelt for the building on a Picture I am working on.

I cut some circles to make little earbud pouches.  Sorry I can’t right now remember who had this great idea to use scrap piece for felt for this. I want to keep my square credit card reader in one.

I made 2 pieces specially to cut up.

I love the way the silk throwsters waist seems to hover on the felt even though it is well attached. The blue one isn’t firm enough so I will rewet it and full it some more.

I also started 2 more. I laid the wool out first. The first one I used on large piece of silk  on top . I added the roving so you could see the colour. I wanted something a little more “masculine”.

The other one I want more texture from the silk so I had to wet the back ground so the silk would stay where and how I put it. I then added some synthetic yarn and put tiny amounts of wool to bridge it and hold it down.  I really like how it looks so I think I will make a scarf in the same design. It is very dark in the picture because it is wet.

So that’s been my week in felt.  I hope you have been able to play with some fibers too. Don’t forget to enter the draw for a free hat class.

  1. Lots of felt you’ve been working on Ann! It’s all very nice but I really like silk throwsters waste too. I did edit your post so that Teri’s link was clickable. Hope that’s OK.

    1. Thanks Ruth, It looks like more than it is. I need to get working on some bigger things. Thanks for fixing that. I meant to go back and check it and forgot.

  2. I love the scarf Ann – it’s so delicately pretty.

    I like the masculine colours for the felt – great idea – and I’d like to see the last one when it’s dry.

    I wonder what building you are working on?

  3. Beautiful scarf, perfect for summer breezy evenings. I like the masculine colors as well. I had recently made an earbud case, I like that yours will be round. I’m looking forward to the city scene. Love the bold colors of the prefelt.

    1. Thanks Marilyn. I need to make a bigger rectangular one for my phone charger. I don’t know how long it will take to picture done. I can be very slow.

  4. I think the hovering silk might be because you’ve chosen opposite colours, Ann, they’re bouncing off my screen! I know what you mean though, it’s one of my favourite embellishment fibres. You’ve got a lot done this week 🙂

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
