I hate it when I am the only model I can find!

I wanted to show you the final results of the nuno/laminate felt wrap. It was dyed in shades of blue, gray, green and soft plumb. the wool that was added was olive, navy and plumb-purples. I adore this wrap, and really wish I had done it in colors that were more suited to me. (I rarely wear blue.) I imagine it will look quite lovely on a blond. This wrap rates pretty high on the "flutter factor" and I love that about it.
I have to admit that the photos are not very good, lighting is bad, my husband is not thrilled at doing this for me (but he won't model it either!) and I am the model....need I say more!
Woke up this morning to 60 degrees and raining. Not bad for November 22, in Michigan. Love rainy days, the coffee tastes better, the day moves slower, wool felts faster and I have time to breathe!
Shalom and happy felting all day long!

I found my daughter as a model. She wants to be famous :)
Scarf beautiful!

Good morning Licho!
Daughters do come in handy for modeling. When mine lived here, she did a great job of modeling for me, (though, it wasn't her favorite thing to do for me.) I just think a pretty face would help show the pretty of this wrap.
Good to hear from you and thanks for popping by.

I like the color combination but have the same problem working in colors that don't suit me....just seems harder some how .

What type of silk have you been experimenting with ? I gave up on anything tighter then chiffon and mesh as I can't seem to get tighter silk to felt securely .

Enjoy the weather, global warming sure seems real in MN this year but I'll probably have my doubts come January .

Ohh, I love this, the colors are stunning. My daughter also used to model for , even though she didn't like either :)

Good morning Dear One!
On this piece I am using 4.5mm from Dharma Trading Company. I have a hard time making it work as well, but you might recall that I toss mine in the dryer on "air only" after I have rolled it by hand about 5000 times. (by actual count). I start out very slow and soft, with cold water and soap. Each one takes me approximately 6 hours of rolling, then it gets "slapped" in my dryer until I get the desired effect. Does that help?

Thanks you so much...and thank you for stopping by. It makes me feel less isolated to hear from my fiber friends!

You and your daughter could both model! You are both incredibly beautiful and your passion for life shines through your eyes! Would love to have you model my things.
love you Iona,

The pictures of you and the wrap are wonderful. You look GREAT! The hubby did you a service of catching you "in the act".

Beautiful fabric, love it, love it. I know what you mean about being your model. I seem to be able to make only one size of clothing, my own. Hugs

I think you are a fab model. I loved seeing more of the piece than yesterday. Thanks!

I like the colors very much and I like the model too!!! She is doing a great job! Really. And it's true... rainy days are slow and sluggish (is that a good word?) days.

You all are too sweet! Love my fiber friends! You are the BEST!

Gorgeous! I love the playfulness of the photos too. I bet it's heavenly to be wrapped up in.
