Tonight Jan Waller showed us how to make two different felted flowers. We had such a great time!
|Jan starting to give us the basic info|
|Jan is showing us how her felted wall pieces develop|
|My needle felted "rose" before felting|
|I did the rolling for as long as I could but then Jan had to take over for me.|
|Tonight we had: Peggy, Julia, Jane, Juana, Jan, Took|
|Our felted pieces for the roses are set out to dry on my front porch railing (I hope it bothered my neighbors -- hah!) -- I LOVE the color of Peggy's car -- that is the blue I wanted to paint my house.|
|This is my felted flower before felting|
|Ooops -- I added another shade of yellow to the middle.|
|And here are my two pieces|
|Juana's felted pieces|
|The one Jan worked on and Juana practiced needle felting on -- I feel badly I didn't get photos of Jane's beautiful flowers -- Jane needed to leave before the others did and at some point someone said "pictures please" and Jane was already gone.|
|Julia made a flower arrangement|
What a wonderful, wonderful evening! Jan will show us how to make felted masks later in the fall. It will need to be a slightly longer evening, but we will figure it all out.
This was so relaxing, so fun, so new to some of us...it felt like such a communal activity. Really really wonderful! We can't wait for the next time!
Tookies progress: absolutely none...we did this all night.
