Family portrait

A group shot of most of the woolie creations I've been making. Most of these will go with me to ARtfiberfest to sell at vendor night....a 2 hour frenzy of fiber fun. Syd and I will be driving up to Port Townsend, Washington state next weekend to teach workshops and visit friends and family and buzz back home. I'm still working on a few things to take ....some felted totes with applique and fiber jewelry that is half finished. My blogging may be a bit sporadic as I pack and get everything ready to go.
These two strange guys showed up on Saturday! Couldn't resist using the felted tassels on the end of a felted wool scarf as "ears"....
This is some NUNO felt that I overdyed. I like it much better now....
The edge of the nuno scarf that I overdyed.....
This is the back side...you can see how the fibers have migrated to the back side....and through the silk fabric.
I decided to do some dyeing of various fabrics while overdyeing the silk...cheesecloth, scrim, velvet, and felt. Fun to dry it outside in the sun and on the jasmine vines at the front of our house.
It reminds of me of the women who do their laundry outside and dry things on boulders and bushes.

Eight days and counting. Love the felted over dyed pieces too.
