Just got back from a long weekend in Georgia. Had a wonderful time with a dear friend who flew in from Germany. I gave her my felted flowers from my previous post. I was nervous- I always worry when I give a gift....even more so when it is a homemade gift. I adore homemade gifts because I can appreciate the time put into it-but not all people do. Luckily the flowers were well received. :) So when I came home, I spent the afternoon felting new flowers. With the intense sun, they are drying super fast. I am having fun mixing colors and adding beads to the middle section.

Suzanne's post, at Hooked On Felt, about her pod hanging in her garden. I could not make up my mind on the colors, so I used my bag of wool scraps. It's a pretty large bag and I think I got a little carried away with the size of my pod. Mind you, I had no idea how to make one of these, but I figured all I could do was try......I used a ton of old plastic shopping bags for the resist. I balled them into the shape I wanted and then taped them into a solid using packing tape. I love how it brings a colorful spot to an otherwise shady spot in the garden. It felt good recycling pieces of wool that are bits and pieces from projects that I have made while learning about this thing called felting.......

Well I think I just may have worked out the need to make these wallet sized pockets. I have one more drying and then I think I will need to try something else. :) I do love all of them! Every single one of them has taught me something about working with wool. The cream one with the neps was the worst to make. I really tried to get them to incorporate into the wool better than they did. My daughter made me the button on it so I will always cherish it! I have some more wool on the way, and am excited to get it and have new colors to play with!

School is out! Yipppeee!! I think I am worse than a child....but oh how I love my summers. I save all year so I can afford to have my summers off. I love spending this time with my kiddos AND recharging my energy for the next school year. I have a million and one projects planned :) I'm sure I'll finish a few of them. I am itching to get started. Off to order more wool..ha, like I need it!
