Atlanta is HOT

I finally did some felting. It was a nuno piece and I had trouble keeping it wet because of the heat. I am still working on it, it is going to be a very light wall hanging. I hope it ends up with lots of wrinkles and crinkles. I want to bead it but will have to see the finished product before I can make more plans. Maybe my embellisher could be used to add some velvet leaves.....

I sold all my dyed blue roving this weekend. Both the robin's egg blue and the blue with purple carded in. The carded fiber was so soft and beautiful and really did not take as long as I had expected. Now I want to dye more roving and card colors together with some silk, just to see what I get and how it felts.

Got to tell you it is so nice to be felting again. My foot swelled but nothing major, I think I am back in business again!
