Silence and then not so much....

I've not had the time to post lately...life is usually pretty busy here, but then it goes on steroids and gets CRAZY, out of control, heavier than one thinks one can handle. Such is life here right now, and an end of it may be in sight soon. The operative word is "may". Since I've not had time to post, I've had even less time to make felt. Here is the latest work...time is a gift. (I want more presents!)

For felting news....It's kind of cool! A friend of mine is getting married and has asked me to make her bouquet out of felt flowers. How cool is that! I am so excited and honored to do this for her...and I get to work with two of my favorite colors, white and purple! I used to do floral design on the side, so this is going to be great fun for me. She is knitting her wedding dress (can you imagine!) out of lace weight kid mohair, she'll carry felt flowers, and I think I am going to try to incorporate nuno ribbons coming from the bouquet as well. Anyone got ideas that they want to share with me?

Gotta run for now. Plainwell is having the ART HOP tonight and I need to hit the shower and get ready for a fun, fun night. Pop over if you can, many wonderful artist there!

Kisses and Peace to you all,
Suzanne
Oh, the second photos is of a wall hanging: "Birth: To Spill Forth"
It is made of merino wool silk fabric, silk fibers, Mohair and Teeswater locks, cheese cloth and beads.

It's good to finally hear from you! Your absence was beginning to worry me. All is good over here. Going back to work on 3/1, same company -- phew!

Peace be with you. Sending lots of positive strength your way. Things will be less hectic and the felting fiber mojo will return.

I can't wait to see the bouquet and I sure hope your friend allows you to share photos of her gown.

Hope the Art Hop is fun. Wish I could make it over your way tonight.

Kathryn Ray said...

Oh my gosh! What an amazing, fun project. I hope you will share photos... both of the flowers and the dress. :-)

I adore that vase. Its stunning. I think it's wonderful that you get to share in your friend's wedding day in this way. She'll probably treasure her bouquet forever, in a way a floral one could not be.
