Super Cuteness

I had to share this super cute picture!  I had a Monarch chrysalis developing on my front porch.  It decided to hatch today and my DD decided to do a photo shoot with it and my bunny Piper.  Piper was intent on her Basil leaves and did not seem to mind her hitchhiker!

On the fiber front, My DH and I head to Asheville tomorrow.  I am going to SAFF!!!  I am so excited!!

Part 2.....

Here it is!  I love it and now see some areas I need to REALLY focus on for the next one.  I used Falkland Island wool, I am too rough on pillows to make it out of Merino.  The Falkland will wear much nicer I think.  I am now coming up with a million different colors I could do this project with! Thanks Deborah for the inspiration!

Thanks! Part 1 of 2.... ;)

I owe a special thank you to very talented felters.  They are Heather from Wool-Love Functional Fiber Art and Deborah from Felters Journey.  They have been sharing their felted creations while I seem to have fallen off the face of the felting earth....... :)  I know a tad dramatic but hey, I'm a gal!
Anyway I am making a nod to both of theses gals because I was inspired by both of them for this post.  The two part post, well, that is a little thing that Heather does with her projects.  And the actual project, well, was the latest one that Deborah showcased on her blog.  When she referenced the magazine she saw the project in, I ran to my own copies and there it was.  I had actually bought it and NEVER got around to reading it....
So thanks to both of these ladies for inspiring me to have some soapy, wet, wooly fun- I won't take such a long break again!
Here is the first part:
Stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed for part 2.......
