It's been awhile since I posted anything, and I have been really inspired by the colder temperatures again. Hmm. it will almost be a year since I picked up my first felting project soon...and I am still really intrigued by the seemingly limitlessness (is that even a word?oh well) of fibre as a medium. I keep getting so inspired by all of you and I want to say thank you for the encouragement, the support, the inspiration, choke! gawsh! I'm getting softy.  Grin
Happy Halloween everyone. Waiting for sunset to turn off all my lights and get scared in the dark. haha. boo!


here's the latest 'one-off' I was inspired to try to combine yarn with blobs of felt. and ended up with a long twisty neck tie, sash thingie. I like versatility. would you guys wear this? or is it too ary farty? I'm not sure. It does look like I am taking it all too seriously. haha


And this is what I've felted in the last 2 days. sorry the pics are so small. It's that dino camera of mine again.  Tongue
A combo of FABULOUS dyed roving from the gorgeous Caedara and a mix of other rovings.. the left side of the pics is the fronts and the right side is the backside of them. I think I may either turn them into neck collar things/small scarves, (so warm and cozy) or add ribbons or yarn and make sorta hip sash things.
Ack! I keep saying 'things' to describe.. help me out, what do you think?
have a spooky eve tonite.  Wink

i love the neck piece - you could even make super long strings of it and have it wound on a card at shows - people could buy it by the foot!  two feet for a simple look, four for a dramatic one.

hmm, they might be buying it by the meter in Canada...

I think if you paid $200 for the bobbly thingy it'd be artsy-fartsy, but you didn't. You made it yourself - it's colorful, whimsical, creative, and just HAD to be fun! Swell job!

 Grin thanks kindly everyone. I am glad you guys like the neck piece. And yes rmichol-It would be cool if i could sell in bulk...if it didn't take me so long!!  Wink but shorter pieces might be a good idea.

Spunky circles - looks fun to wear as do the sashes - ear warmers (always like putting stuff on my head, LOL)   Your colors are always marvelous.

It's very arty farty but I love it, and I now want to make one! How did you go about it? Are the circles wet-felted, and the rope part spun than plyed?
