I'm not doing that well with 'Experimental Craft Week' because I've been actually working quite hard (research projects) and trying to finish the second sleeve for the Catholic sweater so I can get it sewn up. But I did do an experimental craft yesterday!
In which Kim needle felts
Have you ever done needle felting? I haven't (well until yesterday). I wanted to do this because there is something I want to make for Tim for Christmas and needle felting seems to be a good way. Plus I had bought a kit on sale last Christmas so had all the stuff. (All the stuff means: roving, a felting needle, and a small piece of foam core).
So yeah, that is all it is--poke poke poke. It might come in handy when I am feeling like I want to hit someone at work--sort of a craft person's voodoo doll.
I have a book on tiny little felted things so I might try some little things that don't require a whole lot of shaping on my way to make Tim's present.
Bottom line: needle felting is quick and fun and I might even have a bit of aptitude for it. Materials are inexpensive and dangerous.
And here is the top of the hat I posted about yesterday:
A few other things:
-BRRR it was 48 this morning and 65 in the house and foggy--a great morning for a walk! Now it is clear and still beautiful.
-I finished "Snobs"--it was OK---I think it was Fellow's thesis that the Upper Classes in the UK will never change.
-I watched "The Big Chill" last night--haven't seen that movie for a long time. Kevin Kline was (is still) SO CUTE!
