FELTING

Tessa and I learned how to felt yesterday, and we are both obsessed with it. Other than avoiding getting stabbed with the needle--which sounds easier than it is, trust me, the one with the band-aid on her finger--it is so easy and fun. We have made the cutest pins, and fear that the flower on the lapel and pocketbook and wrist and whatever is going to be our new trademark. I just know that in ten years from now, we will look back and wonder what we saw in these. At least that's what Kelly and I wonder when we look at the photos of craft projects from the eighties and nineties. I'm sure you all remember puffy paint and . . . no, I will not go there.

The book we bought from Hobby Lobby is chock full of ideas, and the old and new selections of wool provide plenty to work with.
