A Felting we will go....

My Christmas shopping trip to Seattle last weekend turned into a shopping spree for myself at Weaving Works! Wool, wool, wool!!! Bamboo! Silk wool blends! Merino!! I couldn't pass up on the soft, beautiful colors!
With my wool baskets full, I decided to start a bag last night. It was first needle felted, and today wet felted. It's not quite done, but I was so happy with the progress. It's been a couple years since I made a felted purse, and I've only made one.
A little break from dolls and diving into felted purses, bags, and vessels!




And, I love close-up shots of felted wool...
