But, a wet felting workshop called my name . . . and I had to listen! (wouldn't you???)
I created a scene from my imagination, rolling, pulling, layering, and teasing fibers into place, excited to see what would happen next!
|Composing with wool|
Ohmygosh, I LOVED that part of the process!
After watering, agitating, and hardening, my little pile of fibers became a piece of felt!

This process is so fast, compared to quilting! And equally engaging. I could be in trouble here. Ha!
Luckily, supplies are simple and readily available. It's the wool roving that would need to be gathered and hoarded. Which opens the door to collecting silk fibers and other embellishments. Oh, my!
I've started with ordering a book about combining wet felting and stitch . . . aaaaannnnd now I'm officially hooked! :-)
In the Studio
It's Youth Challenge time again!
My granddaughter has made her plan, and was able to pull most of the fabric she'll need from her own stash!
To keep things fair, her work will remain under wraps until after the viewer's choice vote in April. Suffice it to say, she will be a regular studio guest for the next few weeks - yay!
|From brain to paper!|
I've continued working small, trimming a whole lot of one-inch hst's. (more on this later)
And, finally, a "before and after" of a pretty client quilt:
