More, Getting Ready for My Upcoming Show.

My show is coming up fast. It is September 10-11. in Almonte Ontario. I dyed some more silk for scarves. Concentrating on purples.

4 slik scarves 3 silk scarves

I did get 2 scarves finished. The orange one with the yarn on it that I showed you before wetting last time. It needs ironing but I really like how it turned out. The finer yarn shows up much more in person.

This one has silk top on it and silk throwsters waste but I couldn’t get the throwsters waste to show up in the pictures.

I also started a hat that will go well with one of the scarves or by it self.

It’s cut open now and had another roll, then my knees wanted a rest form standing. I will show you the finished hat next time.

I want to get several more scarves done and a couple of hats and well a ton of other stuff I probably don’t have time to do. Oh well, I wouldn’t want to do anything different this time. LOL


Textured Felt and Some Dyeing

Textured Felt and Some Dyeing

I finished up some textured felt this week. First the pieces I started last week to cut up. They are the wet ones at the bottom of the post.

They turned out great. I am sorry for the quality of the pictures but the pictures are taken in full sunlight as that is all I had.

This one has so much depth. The yarn is quite sparkly. I am surprised It didn’t flash back more in the sun.

I liked this so much I decided to make a scarf and matching hat.

The scarf is now drying.

The hat is just ready to cut open. I will show you it finished next time.

Lastly I did some silk dying so I can make some scarves for the fall shows.

The green one on the left will probably get over dyed. It is two shades of green but they are to close. I will probably use some navy blue on part or it.

I can’t believe the summer is half over. I still have so much to do. How are you doing with your summer felting plans?
