Sick...and Tired of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jim and I have both been sick with some kind of virus that makes the room spin. Really bad for the first 24 hours, but lessens as time goes by. Finally last night, I was able to sleep well, dream well and this is what I made while dreaming! It is actually one of the vessels I made several months ago, but I made it again last night. Ha! Such fun!
What do you dream? Do you dream in felt?

It Ain't Me, Babe!

It is so not me to bead or even sew on a is like NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't see that small. Stitching eludes me completely and I am sure I'd be kick out of a class by  Annemie Koenen .

This is what I used on the surface design of this vessel. I hope this is helpful and gives you many wonderful ideas.  It is a soft silk gauze with very heavy beading. Think second hand shops!

Class update in Wisconsin

I will once again be doing felting weekend at Bahr Creek, January 16, 17, and 18.

Friday, January, 16 9:30-5:00 will be the HAT CLASS. Making a hat in a workshop is one thing, but learning how to design hats for a lifetime is quite another. Learn to create a uniquely designed hat, how to make multiple designs, and how to design styles for your face shapes. If your goal is to just make one hat, don't miss this class either. So much fun!!! Class size limited to 10.

The PURSE WORKSHOP will be Saturday, January 17 9:30-5:00. In this workshop you will design your bag, create pockets, inside and outside if you wish. Endless possibilities in design works. class is limited to 10 so call early to reserve your spot in the class.

BIRD POD WORKSHOP, Sunday, January 18 9:30-5:00
About 8-9 years ago I made a rather large pod that still hangs outside of my home. Wrens nest in it every year. Since then, the felted bird pods have become a wonderful handmade item for bird lovers worldwide. In this workshop, you will design your pods, use manyu surface designs elements and you will be working with Finn wool, due to its sturdiness. These are great for yard ornamentation, and unique gifts. The first time you see the wrens in the pod, it is a wonderful thrill!!

email or call 920-668-6417 to reserve your spot in the class. Brigitte DeMaster will send you a complete list of what to bring and more info on the class
