I managed to make a couple of art pieces. One was rejected by the Texas Fiber Arts Federation for their annual show - phooey. I made a couple of small pieces using techniques from Kelli Perkins Quilting Arts Workshop - Stitch Imagery. I don't have pics on this computer so I will post them later. I also decided to knit and felt a couple of purses. I was inspired by a simple, yet beautiful purse Suzanne Morgan brought to one of our DAFA Board meetings. True to my nature, I had to try making one for myself. Here is the felted purse. I will needle felt a design later. I was very happy with the results and was inspired to make a cell phone holder. I used a pattern from Pursenalities Plus. The amount of shrinkage amazes me:
Pre-felted piece, look at how much room there is.
After felting and with snap closure.
Finished piece with heart shape covering the magnet snap.
Life's a journey....
