Felting Bee Hives & Solar Systems
S took a page from his sister and started his needle felting design by using a piece of felted sweater as a base.
The design was totally his own....it's a scene of our backyard bee hives.
Pretty Creative that boy is!
Then he got his turn at the sink for some wet felting. And boy was that wonderful wool roving all over the pace by then!
I think the purple and blues in this roving I had from Spinning Awesome Good made his decision on doing something space related.
Then off to pick through some colors for planets...
Making them all fit.
Then rolling, rolling, rolling and scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing.....S doesn't like to listen to directions sometimes and he really had to work his piece quite a bit as the planets were not adhering at first and felting together. And Mama doesn't know best apparently. But that boy of mine.....he kept going and insisting he knew what he was doing....
..and by Jove he did. He got the Best in Show for youth wet felting. That boy.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
