I've been working on a variety of projects. I made up the scarf from Tammy Deck's Tree Bark Scarf kit. I think it came out nicely, but I'll give credit to Tammy and her color choices. I made another scarf in blue and white, in my own design. My counter top is just long enough to lay out a scarf.
I experimented with geodes a few weeks ago, and finally put some of the slices into a piece I'll call Cosmos.
I'm in the process of adding beads. The base is made from a black merino batt that I had made into a prefelt using my Janome Xpression. The embellisher did a good job making the prefelt, but for this project the prefelted background made it harder to get the motifs to felt securely on. I resorted to drying it out, then needlefelting the motifs on, then finished wet felting. Then, I needlefelted over the tops of the motifs to brighten up the colors, which seemed to lose their brilliance. The black lost a LOT of color while I was wet felting, and I think it dulled out the other colors. The tails of the "comets" are multicolored merino top.
Did I say this post would be mostly pictures and that I was too tired to write? Haha.Here are the rest of the pictures without comments.
