I have been having such fun experimenting with wool whether it is lambs wool or an old wool sweater. I've been making scarves and pot holders. Now being a environmentally conscious kind of guy I had to use as much of the the wool as possible! Therefore I have created two heart wall hangings that are for sale in my ETSY shop.
I am having such fun finding new things to create and have made such marvelous connections through ETSY, Facebook and the blogging world . . . . wonderful creative souls and special people. I have enjoyed this cyber relationship and hope one day to meet many of my cyber friends. They are true friends nonetheless and I cherish their spirit, creative input and inspiration.

I have fallen into the world of felting sweaters . . . and I can't stop!! I am finding it fascinating and fun! It is such fun to stick a perfectly good merino wool sweater into the washer with soap and hot water then toss it into a hot dryer!! An old baggy wool sweater that has seen it's better days is now toddler size!! Here are a few beginning projects I've made for family and friends. I got the needle felting bug too . . . been buying wool at Oodles here in Santa Fe.
Hope everyone is well, staying warm, loving life and finding peace in your studio.
