Felted Pods and Allergy Fun

Well I have a smaller project to share this time. I have been working on making wool pods to hang in the Oak tree next to my workshop. I started this project using a large teardrop shaped resist. I layered 3 layers of wool for each side. Then the rolling started. After snipping a hole in the front, I removed the resist and rubbed the edges of the hole to seal the cut edge.

I think this smaller project was just what I needed to keep the creative juices flowing while I battle the worst allergies I have ever had. I read that it is oak pollen that is at high levels...... My farm is called Sunshine Oaks for a I guess I better find a good allergy medicine and learn to deal with it.
