LOVED hearing about your adventures with this piece.  A lot of persistence and patience, and now you have a heirloom piece that looks gorgeous!  Really appreciated seeing the pictures as well.  Gave me a better understanding of all the work involved

Totally love this, and the design is terrific!   One thing really cool about it is that you can use pretty much any kind of fabrics.

I particularly like the hand drawn cards that give an indication of the chore that is supposed to be done.  You could really make a game of this. by having the kids collect cards for the chores they've done, and maybe they could turn them in to collect something.  A book, a trip to the library, maybe it could be used to earn their allowance?

Very nicely done!  I think your fox is particularly cute. Smiley

Crystal -

I'm glad you asked!  The most consistent group I know of is the PDX Knit Bloggers... Mainly knitters, spinners, and a couple of fiber dyers.... and then there's me - never knitting...

This group meets weekly, and without fail is always about a dozen women.  They meet on Wednesday nights at the Whole Foods market (on 190th and Cornell - Tanasbourne area).  Officially from 7-9pm, but it isn't unusual to see people start showing up earlier.

I will be there this Wednesday for certain...  Currently I am trying my skills at rug hooking, however I do like to try different things...

Anyone is welcome!

Hmm.... I had heard of this place, but I didn't know there was so much going on!

Yes I am... I feel so far far away... *grin*
At least I have lots of reasons to go into PDX as compared to some of my neighbor suburbanites!

There's a needlework store with an INCREDIBLE selection of embroidery threads about two doors up from Knit Purl...
Knit Purl is on 11th and Alder (downtown), and the embroidery store is on Alder (same block)

10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Felted Embelishment on: January 31, 2010 12:33:42 PM
I am fairly new to felting, but I had optained some wool sweater scraps at a fiber event, and I thought it would be fun to use them in a project.  I decided to use some of them to embellish (and cover the hole) in a vintage sweater.

Pretty basic concept.... just needle felt the circles onto selected parts of the wool sweater, and needle felt additional pieces as well.  Then added a few french knots for a detail trim...

This was a gift for my mother, and she really liked the result!
