Wool Day!

About once a month I get together with some friends to work on wool projects.  We call ourselves the "woolie woolies..."

Today was fun.  We tried felting wool from roving using both wet methods and needles.  I was happy my egg ended up shaped like an egg!

 I do need to do a bit of decorating with needle felting to dress it up a bit...but I do love the color!

In March we are going to try needle felting a small lamb/sheep.  I'm hoping with some practice I'll eventually be able to make a scottie dog!

Good news...the kitchen is finished.  At least the painting part.  Now I have to put all the "stuff" back.  I'm using this as a chance to change up the pictures and toss some of the unused utensils and plates.  Hope to make a bit more space.

Now I don't generally recommend products but this rejuvenate for counters worked great for me!  I hated the idea of replacing perfectly good counters just because they were getting a bit dull.  This really brought them back to life....which is good as that means more money for fabric and quilts!

The wool looks like fun...I have never tried it. How fun to have a group to learn new things with! I have a wool applique kit I need to do that I'd think I would jump on that...applique without turning under edges...that would be FUN and FRESH! I just caught up on your last few posts...your guild looks like so much fun and I totally agree with your group project...sweet applique and queen size...I want to buy tickets when you guys get to that point! I'm glad to see I am not the only one de-catting projects...

Just before Christmas a lady from the local craft shop came and showed us needle felting. It took all the will I could muster to not rush out and buy a needle and wool to get started!
