Well I must say I thought I would be doing a better job of posting on my blog. However life seems to of gotten in the way. I love having my iPhone, and find that I can do so much on it that I am rarely on my computer. Another reason why I haven’t blogged for awhile.
Although it seems I have been quite, I have actually been working a fair bit. I am trying to challenge myself a bit more in my felting. One of the items I thought would be fun to try, is making an article of clothing. Last summer my girlfriend in BC asked me to help her create a vest. I really had no idea how to go about it, but we plugged along and after several days she had a beautiful vest. Well I thought I would attempt this myself this time. I used some beautiful fine merino white wool, along with some silk organza pieces. I also incorporated some hand spun lambs wool my mom had given me. Once it was all felted I then tossed it into a dye bath of turquoise and blue. The final touch, a beautiful hand made wooden button!
