Really, can you imagine? I am new to this blogging thing and I simply forget to keep it up. I have been busy making this and that. My work at the hospital has been cut to one day a week so I have more time than ever to create. I've been making a few things for my daughter who I will be visiting this next week. I will go into more detail after I give her the items...wouldn't want to blow the surprise by posting pics now!
My newest interest is felting. I have been making felt balls. I received a huge bag of fleece straight from a sheep and have been learning what to do to pick, clean and process it for the balls. My first few attempts have been promising. Working with raw fleece is a process to be sure. Thankfully, there is much information available online for newbies like me. Why felt balls you ask? I am making large felt balls using colorful fleece. Once the balls are finished, I cut them in half to reveal the pretty colors inside. The halfs are then used as pincushions. I really like them. I can always use another pincushion, how about you?
Other projects include revamping battery powered wall clocks. Pics to be posted on those a bit later. I'm also taking a crack at making paper beads. Just getting started but I think these could be pretty if made from the right paper.
