new work

I finally got back into my hot studio yesterday and felted some coasters.  I wanted to do more but the heat really drained me.  Am ready for fall but I have 3 shows coming up so I better get my butt in gear.  I have made 2 new vessels that I will share with you.  My review of said vessels is that I need to put more wool on the template before I start felting.  Ok will only show you one, I have the other one saved somewhere but can't find it.  Will show it when I find it.

Fiber stuff

My trip to NC and the felting class was such fun.  I stayed in a very primative cabin, the front door didn't even lock when you were inside.  No TV, no radio and my computer died on the first day.  Had planned to do lots of felting on the back porch but it was 100 degrees in the shade.  I ended up reading my nook and talking with the care takers. 
The class was fun.  I made the thickest piece of felt I have ever made.  It came out very pretty and when I got home I had all sorts of plans for sewing on it but it won't fit under the needle of my machine so it will be hand decorated.
  There are so many 1/2 finished projects in my studio.  I hope to find the energy to do something soon.  The heat really pulls the productivity out of me.  Does this happen to anyone else?
