Felting #2

 So I made a BIG Mistake over the holiday.   
I cleaned.👀😜
Yep, House is all sparkly clean, spick and span. I can't find ANYTHING. Ugh! 

I take comfort in knowing neither can my husband

And he helped

There's Something about Felt

the way it feels when you work it

soft to the touch and inviting

 the way it looks in piles colorful bits of warm and fuzzy

or when you've finished sewing it down finally neat in its encompassing stitches

hmmm, I thing crow needs a wing to go with that worm

 a little lumpy but always warm and inviting

one is never afraid to sleep under, sit on or otherwise use a felt quilt

its home

and homey things

things that make you feel warm and fuzzy

things that make you think of the future and  family and what lays ahead

zen and the atr of quilting

 I'm in my happy place again

the sun is shining through the prisms

sending little rainbows all over the sewingroom

 the window is open for now 'cause its warm in the sun

I've got something on the machine and something  in the longarm
(thank goodness for charity quilts and the quilt guilds who spawn them!)

 practicing my feathers when piecing gets boring or frustrating in a rippit sort of way

Giving myself plenty to do so I can ignore politics for another week or so

I've gotten a lot of practice this year!

the throes

I have a bad case of the throes,

as every quilter realizes at some point in their quilting career

there are way more Ideas in their heads than they can ever make in reality

and when you are a quilter like me

who is well and truly bitten,

you have more than one hobby horse to ride

this makes for a messy table

or two............

I am always in the throes of an idea

I've various stages of done laying about the house.

I try to keep them contained but they keep crawling out across various tables in the house

tossing themselves around

at least that's what I tell myself

You know they just got out again, like recalcitrant puppies refusing to stay in their basket

here's another one!

and you have to lay it all out so you can see all the colors and how they will interact with each other!

next thing you know there are parts all over the room

It just exploded! honest!

I need to stop buying fabric, is what I need to do.


that last pile ended up looking like this so the process is messy

but look at all the pretty colors!
