I was without power for 7 days due to Hurricane Irene; I'm now back in the cyber world... I sure missed electricity! The first project I did when hot water came back was to work out some ideas for wet felted designs. I wanted to make a soft, delicate cream colored scarf with just a hint of pink. Once the scarf was felted it seemed like it could use a little more style so I made some dusty rose colored felted flowers. Each flower has an antique bead from my Grandmother's necklace. For more detail please see the "Felted Desings" tab at the top of the page.
My next project was to make another felted purse. My only thought was to create multi colored felt and I didn't really have a sense for what the overall design was going to be. The wool is very soft and light with silk felted in. I ended up combining the finished wool with some really funky greenish fabric and some vintage buttons. The straps are long so you can where it across your body.
My last project for the weekend was to finish up one of my hand painted silk scarfs. I had embroidered around the stamped ginkgo leaves with gold metallic thread and was ready to sew on a backing of hand dyed silk but without power... no machine! I was happy to have the scarf completed and for more details please go to the "Silk Designs" tab at the top of the page.
