crafty update

So in the past few months I've gone wild for wool. And this is what I'm into:

-- Currently working on making a pillow out of felted sweaters with a needlefelted piece in the center.

-- Making dish cloths for the kitchen on the knifty knitter looms out of cotton yarn.

-- Loom knitting hats out of this incredibly soft organic cotton yarn for the family.

-- Weaving a rug for Birch's room out of old bedsheets that were on their way to Goodwill.
And I'm still...always...painting here and there. Plus some odds and ends of sewing projects, etc. I posted a few photos here of some recent stuff I've done. It's so fun! A woman at Birch's school used to raise sheep and she just gave me 3 trash bags full of raw wool, so at the moment I am experimenting with washing and carding this wool for future projects. Hoping to get into some wet felting soon! Yay!

You have to tell me how you do the rugs. I want to do that for a rug in my bathroom. They are so beautiful, your felt projects you posting on the blog! Impressive!!!!

I'll post next about how to make a rug from scraps, Tam. It's SO easy and pretty fun. You crochet, so you can make one that way as well.
