Peep, Cluck and Baaa

We made it through week 2 of Stay-at-Home/ Pandemic time! Creative energy took a different shift yet again. I can blame the online-felt-along: Chicks. Creating birds is completely new to me, especially with their thin legs and crazy feet. This challenge helped me grasp wrapping bird feet and setting up a wax station to keepContinue reading “Peep, Cluck and Baaa”

Angora-ish rabbit

  Yesterday I managed to finish off the rabbit and I’m pretty happy with this little guy. Still have plenty more to learn! I’ll start the next rendition tomorrow. Today I completed the faces for the final batch of lamb wool dryer balls. All they need now is a wash, dry, box up and offContinue reading “Angora-ish rabbit”

Little projects

In this time of pandemic, my husband and I stay home for work and life. He’s taken over the main space downstairs and I occupy my cluttered 10’x10′ room.  He’s fully connected to his co-workers in the Seattle area and gets to have a bit of social time online with them. Productivity seems to beContinue reading “Little projects”

Starting the final book

Finally, it’s started!! The drawing has quite a ways to go, but at least the pencil has hit the page. This drawing is part of the final book started by my art friend Cathe Jacobi. The book as made it around the world and has been resting on my desk for well over 1.5 years.Continue reading “Starting the final book”

Laundry sheep to Rabbit

  I’ve been experimenting with lots of wool work since the beginning of January. Initially I focused on funding a new piece of equipment (a drum carder from an Oregon company) by creating needle felted wool dryer balls. Halfway through this “laundry sheep” project, I gave in and bought the equipment. Arms, shoulders and backContinue reading “Laundry sheep to Rabbit”

Border Collie completed

Slowly the “to do” list is decreasing as 2019 comes to a close. Today I dropped off this cute Border Collie destined to reside in California. I hope it brings joy to it’s new owner. The people sending it were thrilled with the pup. Hearts are happy all around! I think I’ll be pushing theContinue reading “Border Collie completed”

Border Collie #3 start

Sculpture Day: Another rough dog form has taken shape. Currently the neck and tail are too long, but should be able to solve the problem before coat application. This one is heading off to another artist who is one of the most amazing calligraphers. Her mother just passed away and apparently there’s a connection betweenContinue reading “Border Collie #3 start”

Life speed ahead!

It’s almost September! Am I freaking out yet? YES!!! Looking back over the past couple of months I realized how little I’ve been contributing on this site. Where did that last posting go (besides being filed in my brain)? Why didn’t I add the completed book page? Sitka Class? Felted creatures?  I seem to beContinue reading “Life speed ahead!”

Cat Fun

Me Me kitty can be a good sport, sometimes. Today she allowed a few fashion snaps of the felted cat hair hat created from just two days of combing. She’s not impressed! At 16, the queen begrudgingly shares the house with 2 rambunctious young calicoes, 2 dogs, one screaming cockatoo, and her house slaves. SheContinue reading “Cat Fun”

Sheep to Yarn Experiment

A few years ago (2016) I pondered and acted upon the question “how does one process wool and create yarn?” Thanks to several friends and lots of You Tube searches I set forth on the wool/yarn learning pathway. It’s taken several years and countless hours working with the Physical Therapist (not easy for my spine/backContinue reading “Sheep to Yarn Experiment”
