Great Studio Weather…

Outside: snow flurries, with wind gusts to 35 mph — it feels like five degrees.

Inside: A table filled with layers of fiber, the start of about 40 cards made of wool, silk fibers and fabrics, curly locks, fuzzy hearts cut from a piece of Finn wool prefelt I made a few weeks ago; and my hand-spun yarns coaxed into shape.

Next: I’ll cover the fiber with a door screen; then wet/felt/full/rinse; cut into individual cards and then work on each card to enhance the designs and get the edges “just so” before laying them all out to dry; then glue images onto blank card stock.

Felting, like chopping wood, is a good way to get warm.

Rhapsody Rose Felted Corsage Pin Donation for State College Choral Society Silent Auction

Wool & Silk fibers and fabrics; curly wool locks; hand-spun yarns; glass/pearl/vintage/crystal/turquoise accents and just a bit of embroidery combined in one funky felted functional item to benefit the State College Choral Society fundraiser.  My number one new year’s resolution was to attend more live music events; it’s only natural that I should support local music.
