A new Scarf
This is newly made and of course not easy to wearm but I will when I go to the gallery. I cut up an old forest green wool sweater that had been shrunk to a mat of wool. I sewed lengths of it together, I cut white wool that was also felted to the face shapes and used the Inktense pencils for my faces and felted the hair and some other parts with roving, roving is cleaned , dyed wool in some cases that has not been spun to yarn. Other embellishments have been added, I lined the back with more wool to cover the stitches. I have seen simular at fairs, none with faces. I was surprised that it took a greater part of two days.
Then the quilt that is done fron printed art on fabric, using the printer.
Also Little Elsie who started out being L>C> and is now Elsie. This is true, she love games where I toss cat toys , she sees me gathering and I say...Elsie get ready, I say it a couple times and pretty soon she is down flat like in a punching position with wild eyes waiting for me to start. She gets points if she catches one I get point if she don't. Think I have too much free time?? Maybe/
