Obsession

I haven't been in love this way in over twenty years.  I want to spend every single second with my new love.  Every. Single. Second.  I am absolutely, completely, head-over-heels obsessed.

With felting.

I mean, really.  Have you seen the wonder that is felting?  For prime examples, check out my Pinterest board with felting that I can only dream of doing!  And do dream of doing.

I intended to post a picture of my first project - a bead.  But Sparky, whose really a pirate in a cat's body, stole the bead off my bead table.  Brat.  Since he brought it back (eventually), I promised to stuff it full of catnip and turn it into a kitty toy.  A fitting first project, we all agreed.

 I want to do projects like this, only on a bigger scale than a pin.  Pin.
I'll be playing a lot with felt over the next few months.  I'm sketching projects and they're keeping me awake at night.  It just feels so wonderfully alive.

  2. I completely understand being in love with felting! People do some seriously gorgeous things with that technique, and there are so many vibrant, delicious colors of wool out there. Nom, nom, nom.

    Can't wait to see what you make!
