    Love the birdhouses but have a question about the use ….what happens when it rains? Also baby birds mess in the nest….it must get kind of yucky??? They would need to be washed after every occupancy…anyone actually use them and attract birds????

    I have had three birdhouse up for about 3 1/2 months with no takers. The squirrels actually like them better as they tear them up to steal the fiber.

  3. I *love* the cityscape. It is on a black felt background? I don’t do much with black. How did you do the stars – are they handstitched? How big is it? Would love to know more about this piece. A moon just makes every picture better, doesn’t it? Love it.

      Thanks, the stars are actually pearl beads. The background is black felt but in the middle of the layers I put some cotton gauze to prevent it sagging. I didn’t want it to slump when the temperature hits 100 with 100% humidity.

  4. Hi, can someone tell me the difference between Nuno felting and wet felting?

  5. Sure wet felting is wool and nuno felting is wool with a woven fabric felted together so they become one. Usually you see silk but other fabrics work as well.
    This takes you to a blog post about using cotton gauze.

    Talking of World of Wool – I found it by chance recently and am loving the place. As I don’t live far from it, I drive there to buy my tops and always find treasure troves of remnants and offcuts.
