Mid December Push

December 15, 2020
Carl the gnome. 10.5 inches tall

I’m not sure what brought about the current flurry of activity, but I’ve actually settled into the studio for work. What’s been created? Well, numerous wool laundry ball orders have been finished and sent (sparking a focus on how to package the product plus labeling). Seven long legged felted gnome sculptures were also created and two found homes. Sheep seem to be a theme over the past several months, so I dove into learning to create a more realistic sheep sculpture, but not quite achieving anywhere close to a real phase yet. Three were constructed but not pushed onto the sales table yet. I also needed a drawing to finish off the sheep ball label, which pushed a totally different sheep image and quite colorful! Yarn production and wool dying has slowed for now, but that’s alright. I also normally create a holiday card, but that just hasn’t grabbed my attention this year. Chock it up to the strange world of 2020

Here are some images of the creations:

Santa Party Sheep.
Blue Sheep, colored pencil

I still have a few more wool balls to create for another couple of orders. The Blue Sheep sparked interest from different people, so I’m contemplating drawing a few more wild sheep and making cards or something. Then there’s a loom waiting for attention. I purchased three beautiful spools of thread to make plain woven kitchen towels. Warping the loom is a bit daunting as a newbie, but eventually I’ll jump in and go. Can’t be too hard.

I will be pulling up my etsy page into a true sales spot. is coming back to life.

If I don’t write again before year’s end, Merry Christmas and have a wonderful end to 2020!

      Thanks Nancy. I actually have a second sheep in progress and possibly a few more to come. I’m looking forward to posting the finished one soon!
