Every time I have a new project I try to learn something new from the process… Or at least I try to teach myself something new. There is always a story behind each piece.
Nuno Felted Coat: Wensleydale Wool, Merino, Uzbekistan Silk, Deer Antler Buttons with Indigo.
This dress isn’t quite finished yet. Still needs color, straps and some adjustments here and there. Hmm… I might even add some beads to it. But, I’ve been missing blogging. It has been a fun and busy summer with some up and downs. Heck, if it wasn’t for the downs, I wouldn’t be having the ups, right? Nothing too extreme, but when it comes to computers problems, it can turn your life quite miserable, especially when all that I want to do, is be outdoors.
By the way, the jewelry has been designed by moi. I’ve been having a ride making jewelry again. It deserves a later post.
Lastly, yesterday, my friend Charmaine and I went to visit my friend Mimi and came back home with a nice fleece with lots of curls and I want so badly to make something totally different this weekend…
I got this beautiful Border Leicester fleece and I had to use those pretty curls!
I made the capelet with a nice textural collar.
I got some more felting done. This time I used mainly raw wool to make this vest. I’m having problems with getting the armhole to the correct size when my original pattern shrinks, but thank god for my sewing machine that comes pretty handy to correct this…
The finished piece
Nothing that a sewing machine can’t fix.
