Busy day, filled with fun projects. I felted several little catch-all wooly bowls first thing this morning. Once they’re dry, I’ll be needle felting sheep & hearts on them… for St. Valentine’s Day! I’ll give you a peek when I’m done.
Took a break and played with my spinning wheel for a few hours with my friend, Deb. Always a pleasure to sit and spin and ‘visit’!
Then back to more projects…
Garlands, banners and little heartfelt muses!
A simple string of hand-dyed needle felted hearts and paper lace doilies. Very sweet!
Added a few paper hearts (using old book pages) to my sheepy banner too! Presto change-o! Was used for my sheepy tree, now it’s good thru St. Valentine’s Day!
Next, I had fun making this wee little tweet – heart wreath!
I used an old embroidery hoop for the wreath ‘frame’, wrapped it with natural 100% wool yarn (of course). I added a burlap ‘bow’ for texture/interest and stitched on a vintage pearl button.
The ‘bird’ is a rusted tin ornie that I covered with glue/glitter and attached to the wreath along with a paper heart cut-out from a page of vintage sheet music… it reads: ‘the rest of my days’.
Awwww… tweet tweet!
