I had the day off work yesterday. The family I work with on Mondays and Wednesdays has the flu. After visiting there last Monday they all got ill but I got lucky because I seem fine so far, thank goodness. But my beautiful boy isn't feeling too well. So instead of working, I was visiting the vet with Max. He has a bit of a stomach bug. Lots of washing of his furry behind has been occurring these past few days if you know what I mean.
After a very exciting visit to the vet (he loves her), we spent some time together. Max took a nap on my bed as I tried to do more needle felting.
I had gathered these acorns a few days ago on one of our walks, so I decided to felt little acorns to put inside them. Once again an easy shape, but that is the way you start, easy.
Today after work I have tried some hearts. Now these are not so easy, I seem to be having a hard time getting it right. It is a fun learning process, but like most things in life I would like to be proficient at this right away.
I love mixing the colors, like painting with wool.
It is hard to imagine the hearts started like this, beautiful wool fiber.
About a week ago I had my husband help me to bring my sewing table downstairs. Sewing table? Yes I know you all seem surprised. I have had this for years. I used to have my sewing machine set up in an extra room we had upstairs. My husband took over the room years ago to exercise in. It is hard to believe in my big house there is not a special place for me, so I decided to bring this down, move a chair and put it in my bedroom. It folds up nicely when not in use and I can keep it up when working on a project. So this is the space I am using to needle felt, not my own studio, but my own table, and that is as good as it is going to get for now.
Hope you are having a great week.
