pods and art

My art project, almost finished, uses felt pods on a field of mohair curlylocks.  The whole concept will be revealed in a future post, but for now you can get a sneak peek.  I think it is coming along nicely and you can see in the first photo a section that is missing pods and locks.  I have only those to make now.
 The project is for a fibre exhibit hosted by the City of St. Catharines this year, and is a result of a call for fibre art entries. I will be presenting the project via photos and email within two weeks, and should know if it will be part of the exhibit by mid March.  Fingers crossed.  I still have to count the number of pods, but it felt (pun intended) like an endless task making these things for the last four months!

it's been a while...

I realized I missed January completely!  I have a good reason.  January welcomed my new grand-baby into our lives.  Here she is wearing the superwash merino cocoon, that I made so many months ago.  (not the best photo of baby, but a nice one of the cocoon!)

Here's a nice one of her gray-blue eyes and a headband that I made.
 I have also hosted two workshops in my felting studio.  They are so fun.  Email me if you would like to be notified of future workshops.
 AND, I began a wonderful relationship with a charming shop in Jordan Village.  Pamela's now carries my nunofelt scarves, shawls and coats.  The rust coloured coat below was featured in the Fashion Show on the Ice Wine Weekend in January.

I have been knitting as well, but not as much and mostly socks and simple shawls.  No new patterns for a bit.  I will be showing a felt Art piece shortly, hoping to place it into a fibre art gallery soon.
