A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Spring Sprang a Leak?


Whatever the weather is where you are, maybe these lovely flowers will put a smile on your face and remind you that Spring will eventually come.

I keep a bag of flowers and leaves that could go onto a project one day. Looking in the flower bag is a treat.

Felting is a very versatile way of crafting. Flat 2D shapes can be made by wet fulling or needle felting as well as 3D shapes.  By the same technique as making a flat wet fulled shape, a 3D hollow shape can be made using resist–a flexible form of flat plastic around which the wool is laid. The wool is then wet down with soapy water, rubbed and flattened, then rolled, and finally the resist is taken out…your hollow shape is further fulled. Fulling is making the hair fibers interlock firmly. It’s a really fun alternative to knitting.  Won’t you give it a try?  I’ve just decided to enter this into one of the Ravelympics events to make as many flowers and leaves as I can during the winter games.  What’s your project?

#3 10ShawlsIn2010 challenge is making a little way…one stitch, one bead at a time.

Handpainted Sheep Shawl Beaded Border Day Three
With two plus hours’ car ride home this afternoon, I should see some progress.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
