That's beautiful, Joyce! Smiley
12  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / witch's face (updated with completed witch) on: September 17, 2006 08:53:23 PM
I bought a book on making faces at a wool gathering yesterday, so I'm finally learning. This was going to be a pin, but I like her so much I'm going to use her on the witch that I'm making!


ETA: Here she is.

13  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Felting on the Martha Stewart show! on: September 15, 2006 08:01:57 AM
In an event of pure serendipity, I turned on the Martha show today (I never watch the Martha show) and they were wet felting! Joely Fisher was on and she and Martha were making finger puppets, using roving from Peace Fleece. At the end, Martha mentioned making felt beads, but they didn't get to it in time.

Here are a couple of links from their website:
Felted Finger Puppets
Felted Bead Jewelry

Just thought it was cool to see felting on a mainstream tv show. Smiley

Thank you, Jane! I started it today, and I'm reinforcing by felting on the back too. It's turning out wonderfully. Smiley
16  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / would this work? on: September 06, 2006 07:28:59 AM
I had an idea and I wanted to see if anyone had tried it before I dive in.

I want to needle felt a design onto a canvas tote bag. Just one of those blanks from the craft store. Would it work? Would I break many needles? Any tips/tricks?

Another question though... does stitch, piece and purl have roving?  I thought someone told me they had spinning stuff but I've never actually been there.

Yes! Stitch Piece and Purl does have a small selection of roving. Some superwash, some brown sheep, and some other stuff. It's been pretty much the same each time I've gone in the past couple of months. They have a couple of spinning wheels that I've been eyeing, too. Their roving is located in the back room, with the quilting stuff.
