My friend Jeanette was cleaning out her art studio and gave me a nice big bag of thickly felted sweaters that she decided she wasn't going to be using. Out of one sweater I managed to make ten little owls.
These guys still need some wings and a bit of embroidery on their chests and then they should be done. Hopefully I can put some in my dusty Etsy shop. It has just been easier for me to cart things off to a wonderful little store here in Santa Barbara that sells some of the things I make than driving up and down the mountain to the post office to ship things. But I enjoy buying art and supplies on Etsy so I think I should at least participate too!
Anyway here is what the owls looked like a few days ago. On top of my bedroom bookshelf with other unfinished items including some chenille bunnies from last year!
And I am having fun doing a little painting and collage...and small seems to work for me right now.
So these are getting their background painting done so I can work on them when I can grab a moment or two.
I hooked this a while ago but don't think I ever posted it...so since it's February and the month of hearts....
a little message to me as a reminder...
