Welcome to my world of fiber art love! I love all things fiber art but mostly art quilting, rug hooking and felting. I try my hand at knitting and crocheting sometimes and occasionally will sew up something simple like drapes or aprons! Also, it is my musings and contemplation on life in general. Enjoy AND KEEP CREATING!

I felted this ring today..my first attempt. I made it too big...next time I will make it skinnier and I also made it too big for my finger...I thought bigger better...and I will shrink it...Well, I dont know why my wool sweaters always get shrunk in the wash and especially if they go in the dryer, but do you think I could shrink this ring? No! I tried 3 times...I got it very wet and put it in the dryer 3 times...no shrinkage. So, now I have to re-cut it and try to re felt the connection. I hope this is possible. I am going to embroider on the ring as well ...I just want to make sure it fits before I start embroidering. (Oh, and I am a fiber artist....so dont look at my very dry and un-manicured hands and nails...also its Winter in Wisconsin!)
finished the lily pads...sorry if you are bored with this...I am doing it for myself so I can see progress...also, it looks different to me and I can see where I need to make changes...Most of the lilies in this picture are paper...I am not done with the lily flowers. Will try to do that tomorrow and the next day.
