The whole reason for going to Durango, CO was to attend a felting workshop with Lisa Klakulak...it was 4 days of felting wonder!
I had the best time and learned so much.
We experimented with colors and design,
and rolled, rolled,
and rolled some more.
Here were my doors and windows cut from the color gradation I did with red and purple. I liked them so much. After felting the windows got a wee bit smaller- I am going to stitch around there for more definition and pop.
The little purple and red thing here was one one of doing vessels--this actually has more felting to go. We also learned to felt vessels with a resist, but it has quite a lot more to go- so we'll leave that out for now.
Below, is my mailbox. Okay, I am not loving this. Maybe some stitching will help it...but I'm not worried about it. I liked the process and learning how I can take design in felt to another level. This just didn't happen to be a fave.
Oh....as it was my birthday afterall, I had to treat myself to a pair of Lisa's beautiful earrings! Happy Birthday me! I love these big hoops! Her jewelry is amazing!

This is blurry, but I think you get a better idea of my doors and windows...
This isn't felting at all.....this is one more reason to go back...deep fried ice cream at Francisco's Mexican Restaurant!! As good as I remember from my college days there!
Thanks everyone for stopping by. If you missed it, the last two posts are from the trip too. I am still getting all settled and back to work. I need to come and visit all my blog friends-- I promise I will this week! See you soon.
