Last Saturday, my sister and I spent the day at my local wool shop and took a class on wet felting by fibre artist Marilyn Rand, see what beautiful work she has created. We had the choice of either a tea cozy, a small purse or a vessel. I chose the vessel and my sister chose the tea cozy. We had such a fun day and I really love felting, both wet and needle. This was the third felting class I have taken and each time it amazes me how unspun wool(photo #1 below) can turn into such interesting, strong and useful pieces(like my vessel in photo #4). I think I may use it for a vase for some dried flowers. Wouldn't a big bunch of hydrangeas be pretty in that. I may also try to shrink the length down a bit as well, it is pretty tall right now. We also made a cobweb scarf but I didn't get a photo of that.
Thanks for stopping by and have a very happy March break everyone!! I am taking my kids to see Rango tomorrow, hope Johnny Depp doesn't disappoint!
