These are my latest obsession.....wet felted natural dyed fleece on a rock with my feeble attempt at imiitating the forest floor with embroidery stitching...so much pleasure!!!!! I was feeling under the weather and this was a warm and fuzzy haven of colour, texture and learning new stitches thatI thought might look like moss, lichen and sporophyyles...loved making the little cladonia and playing with new ideas....learned so many new stitches and felt is so wonderful and forgiving to stitch into....see more of these in my future...weather has been mild and January short days are here...always thinking I will get so many projects done in the spring...

Busy busy, xmas markets and just plain fun...cat cave, too small but a treat to see finished, now either get a kitten or make a pod from it...ten layers of half breed, lvely firm tons of arm work....but love the texture...small hedgehogs, there I was finding myself making a hedgehog, I was surprised, but then made twelve more, too delightful...and finally teaching myself to needlefelt....mushrooms gnomes and mice...thanks to tutorial from sarafina....could become addictive...now on to the scond fir of the season...

A continuation of sandstone felts...this piece , except for the last photo, was a scarflette i finished today....loved the tones and the touch of blue was good....so much to learn and such fun learning ..especially with a new obsession..you can take all your past and apply to a new surface...the trick for me, is remembering it all, more notes , more detail designs and this blog helps as it is like a memory journal of what I have done, what has gone before;). When you do a lot of things that all entail a lot of processing the details get pretty thick and notes help keep things straight...so tomorrow I tryanother technique, and feel a wall piece coming on which would almost be full circle from 25 years ago when i started felting, then I did a lot of wall pieces, quite large ones....it is always a shock to see them from time to time at friends places...i would like to take them and felt them all anew...lol not that they weren't solid but what I thought was well felted then is not how I see well felted now...;)

Days have been sunny and unusually warm....I have been building stock, well actually having a lot of fun, but building stock sounds so much more work oriented, and what i have been doing definitely feels like fun....here are some of my moments in the recent past, between harvesting and drying food.
