I love that so much, especially the action shot of your little squishy jeep taking on the rocky trails. Which I imagine to have some sort of persuasively-smooth voiceover about all the features of your bright pink vehicle. Hee.

I did a lot of soft sculpture in my final year of art class, but lately I've been doing more hand felting so I had to go back a little bit into my first projects to when I was still working only with craft felt. This is a project that met the requirements of an observational assignment, we had to spend about two classes looking at a particular part of the room (of our choosing, thankfully) and then do a lot of observational drawings, followed by a final project. Most people chose to draw or paint theirs, but I wanted to try soft sculpture. And I've been doing it ever since, I guess! This is a section of the wall that had an outlet with a microwave (that's the grey one) and a stereo (that's the black plug) plugged into it. I wish I had better pictures that showed the little plastic teeth that the black plug has instead of prongs, but I gave this entire piece away after I was done with it. The two plugs are made entirely of felt and then stuffed, and the wall itself is a foam cushion. There's a metal button serving as a screw in the outlet, but you can't really see it from this angle. The outlet is made out of felt, and the part that the black plug is plugged into has little slots cut into the foam for its prongs. For scale, the wall is about 20 by 20 inches.

For the record, this is probably the project I've done that seems the most dangerous as a toy for kids. Not because of the way the entire thing is made (it's all pretty securely attached) but because I think it undermines the "don't stick things in the socket" rule just a little bit.

I used that pattern to make my prom dress last year and I really liked it. It looks super-nice on you, it fits perfectly. I really like how different your dress looks from mine, even using the exact same pattern.

The Loopis on Barrington Street. It's pretty much right across the street from Loomis and Toles

The Loops sells roving as well. I bought a big bag of it before I left for college. (I'm from Sackville, but I'm currently living in Ottawa.)

No problem.
I think one of their staff is a craftster member (try looking further back in this thread) and they probably know a great deal more about The Loop than I do.

I don't know much about the loop's stock when it comes to yarn (I, uh, don't knit.) other than that it is very pretty and there are lots of different kinds and colours and that it's all stored very nicely. They sell some knitting books, too, but what I go there for is the wool I use for felting. They sell big bags of undyed stuff as well as smaller bags of mixed colours. The staff is really helpful and friendly, too. I keep meaning to go back in and show them the tomato plant dress I was working on last time I went in to buy stuff.

If you haven't already seen it, you could check out their website. http://www.theloophalifax.ca/

I have that same necklace! It's heavy, though, so I don't wear it all the time.

I really love the leafy green one, those are my favourite colours.

I especially like the one with leaves (I am showing my predisposition to leafy things here, I think.) but they're all really pretty.
