Bird Houses

Yvette taught the Wet Felting 101 class this week and participants made bird houses!

Balloons, roving, soap and hot water....

Once these are dry, they will cut a hole and pop the balloon...
Some of the participants are then planning to needle felt a design on it. Hopefully they will bring them back so I can take pictures of the finished projects.

I have made some progress on my Brigid Jacket but no pics to show yet. I have now finished the back, both fronts and almost one sleeve. The Budding Apple is coming along, but slowly. Hopefully I'll have time to work on both this holiday weekend.

Have a nice holiday weekend everyone! I hope to show you some pictures from Musclepalooza (I'll explain later) as long as the weather holds out....
