Out of Chaos - Felted Treasures and more


I figured out the camera, the computer and the internet (to the best of my ability and levels of sanity) ... and have listed my first items on madeit , an aussie site dedicated to the sale of all things handmade.

My workroom is a never ending story. In order to finish this or make that I purchase this and purchase that and I think in fact, I may have added to my stash!


Firstly, I gathered my baby wraps and photographed them.
I love to make these. They are labour intensive, but so soft and snug and lightweight.





A needlecase, I washed, carded and felted some Alpaca fibre and went to work.


Next on the list - to photograph my cards. Now finished!






Then leather bound journals ... My mother has been the inspiration behind these ... we began with a family day, each making one for our own use (boys too), but they are nice to touch I had to make more.. They're all handstitched and bound.


And to add confusion to chaos I joined a creative fibre group ...

                    ..and now I'm felting a bust of Medusa.



She's a work in progress as you can see...a combination of 'Medusa' and 'The Scream' by Edvard Munch
 

The most difficult thing to do is

TO STAY FOCUSED....
