loving TPB this week

 

Just took a minute to check out the submissions from the latest design challenge over at the printed bolt. The challenge was to come up with a design that mapped out the geography of your life…very interesting. I gotta say that these gals are pretty clever and came up with some great fabric. Head over here and check it out.

 

Which one is your favorite?

we’re getting there.

 

Definitely getting closer to Market crunch time. I’m hanging in there, cranking away, and not thinking about much else. Here’s a snap at my current workspace. Surprisingly it doesn’t look too crazy, which may be a little deceptive. That stack of fabric on the right is a good 3-4 inches tall.

New stuff to come very soon…

needle felted.

 

It’s nice to try new things. Last weekend it was¬†needle felting thanks to a class at the library.

I’m not gonna lie, it’s a little violent. Several people in the class really seemed to be getting out some aggression.¬†The idea is to mat the fibers together with a sharp, barbed needle. Just lovely. And you have to pay careful attention not to needle felt your finger. I think I got myself once, which wasn’t too bad considering my coordination sometimes.

 

At first I got a little carried away with making beads. It was fun mixing colors and trying to make them as dense and round as possible. Then the flying saucer (far right) happened. Not my best work. I figured it was time to move on, and I got the idea to make a saguaro cactus to use as a pincushion. I really kind of like it. I just need to figure out what to use for a base…
