Thanksgiving cards for a Special Group of People...

Volunteers were asked to make a "Handmade" card to be included with Turkey dinner deliveries to some Bolton seniors...  I had so much fun making these, I got carried away and made 12+ and counting....

Seagull Cinderella

In homage to Donna Dodson's "Seagull Cinderella" sculpture I created this 3d felted sculpture that sold at 6 Bridges Gallery Maynard MA. A portion of sales went to Virginia Thurston's Healing Garden in Harvard MA

My fabulous surgeon...

Dr Colleen Feltmate...  her last name alone inspired me to create a "mini-me" as a token of my thanks for a fabulously successful surgery!  Thanks Colleen!

Penguin ornament... it's a start!

Having done minimal amounts of fiberart this year, I figured it was good to start up small with needle-felted ornaments.  Here's my 2015 Penguin.

Massachusetts State House

The Bolton Artisans Guild had the opportunity to display art at State Representative Kate Hogan's meeting room.  This was just the inspiration that I needed to get back to my felting.  I decided on making a wall hanging of the state house.

Started with 5 layers of wool...

Wet felted the layers...

 Needle felted the details...  voila!!

Finished size ~ 22" x 19"  

The art works will be on display from June through Sept.  My understanding that we can view the works when the meeting room is not being used.

Finally back at it...

I haven't posted since Dec, 2014, and worse yet, I haven't needle felted a 3D puppy in a few years.  My son's friend wanted a mini version of their new puppy Coal so that he could partake in their upcoming wedding festivities.

Working from a photo, I created my needled version of Coal.  Since he's a puppy, I exaggerated both his paws and his nose...  He's approximately 4" tall and 6" long.

Hope they like him..

Wool Soapies

A collaboration between Isabelle Soap and Louie Girl

"Wool Soapies" are like having your soap and wash cloth all in one.

Isabelle Soap is a handcrafted all natural soap containing coconut, olive, or soy oils.  The soaps are scented with pure essential oils and herbs and flowers.

The scrubby is wet felted with 100% wool fibers.

Spikey pod...

I started this pod last year while showing a fellow artisan how to make a felted pod...  It sat on the shelf in its dry "non-wetted" down state for over a year.  Finally had a chance to felt the pod and voila, I love my spikey new pod.

Pet Cave - proof of concept...

Having no live pets, I used a stuffed animal to try out the felted "pet cave"  large enough for two cats or one small dog...  This still needs a few more hours of felting to get it to the final stage...

Happy Germs

Time to get back to felting...  After 3+ weeks of allergies, colds and congestion I decided to make some Happy Germs to help clear my head.  I may still be congested but these little guys make me feel a bit better...
