We had a taste of spring yesterday! How pleasant for us! It is hard to believe it is the first of February. I recall warm-daffodil-blooming-spring-like days in February, but I do not remember one in January.
Last year I wet-felted some wool and sat looking at it all year long. I thought they looked beautiful (although I could have spent more time “fulling” them*), but I had no idea what to do with these small pieces of cloth. (I did make a pouch for my camera with one piece, but my camera keeps slipping out…and I haven’t taken the minute to sew on a button!) Yesterday, I decided to cut hearts from them to honor Valentine’s Day.
My walls appear a much more vibrant green than they are in reality! Not sure I could live with that green. The last heart is on a sculpture by artist Julia Evatt. She just happens to be my mother.
Happy February, everyone!
*I looked up “fulling” to make sure I was using the correct term and found a interesting (to me anyway) explanation and history of the term here, if you’re interested.
