A Few of My Favorite Things...

 

 

 

 


I recently won my first ever blog giveaway...

...a necklace with the most perfect saying ever..."Live Happy"!!

I received this enchanting bauble from Dana, aka
Tutu Monkey....

...who is a beautiful woman, both inside and out!!

The creator of this and other quite feminine jewelry is
Beth Quinn...

...and I am grateful to both women for having made this 'transitional time' in my life a bit brighter!!

I knew you would want to see some of my more recent acquisitions, too...

...a length of needle-felt, merino roving, a hat block, 'Creative Felt Gathering' tote bag and a cunning little wooden tool for use in felting narrow areas!!

Last, but definitely not least, is my finished felting table (the photos show it with the oil-based paint still drying)...

...a combination of four Ikea cabinet bases, four unfinished wooden counter-top pieces and a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears!!

I now have a surface that measures over 4 X 6 feet (134cm X 192cm)...

...and I am itching to 'test drive' it with a big project!! Grin.

what a great table!! looks so sturdy:) I bet you will have many hours of joy at that table:)
The wooden stick for narrow places in felt I have never seen. Do you know is it handy in use and where to get it?

What a great little pendant, and I couldn't agree more with the inscription. Please do!

That felting table/cabinet is amazing. Congratulations on putting that one together. I would love to have a top like that for blocking my things on, but space requirements make it impossible here.

Personally I like the long scarf. So you have to wrap it a few more times. Where's the problem there? It will just keep you warmer that way. Hey, start with it over the head and then wrap, maybe that will make it a bit less long. :)

Kim--I bought it from Susan MacFarland at the felting workshop.
I haven't had time to try it yet, but here's her website: http://www.susansfibershop.com/index.htm
