Primary Colors

This piece began as a baby blanket, which it certainly could be. But I like it best as a throw or lap blanket with it's beautiful, vivid, primary colors.

Sharing Felt

Rabenfilz is a unique felt blog that I like to follow, and who follows me.
This elegant piece is an example of her work.
I feel quite fortunate to be able to connect in this way with others around the globe who are making felt, and feeling about the process and the material as I do. How else would I be likely to see the work of a felter in Spain, short of going there?
A fabulous idea, but not always possible.

"the slow process of felting is my daily meditation",

I could not have expressed it more perfectly.

Needle Felted Vase

Sometimes I really enjoy a bit of needle felting.
A process both sculptural and meditative.
