Got to be quick with this one... time is getting away from me again - Im sure its speeding up!
Wednesday my fibres still hadnt arrived. But lying in bed on Tuesday night I suddenly felt the need to create a cobweb wrap fit for a faerie. Possibly because I had been looking at the Glastonbury Faerie Ball on the internet that evening..
So, as soon as the kids were packed off to school I started setting up & laying out. I was really in the zone that day - had the incense burning & soft music playing...
|How much did I wish that I had table room big enough for this?!|
|Simple leaves cut from mawata silk hankies|
|The silk leaves really melted into the felt.. they look lovely. Next time I will dye them a nice soft colour first though I think.|
The problem with working on something this huge & also delicate.. on the floor! is my sad deficiency in the art of levitation! OMG my muscles were aching after this. Fortunately when it was rolled up I could transfer it to the table for rolling.
Now Im really happy with it - but I havent got a good photo to show you yet! Im hoping to get my girlie to model it, hopefully on a dry sunnyish day.. (not hoping for much hey?) OR, I may be sucessfull in my construction of a dressform - you never know.
My new fibres did arrive early yesterday, so with muscles already aching from the day before I set out to felt another wrap! This one is a nuno wrap, which again has started out pretty big. It took nearly 5 hours just to lay the fibre.. and after a couple of hours rolling I was just so shatter I decided to stand the roll in a bowl & leave it over night. Im about to go work on it some more now..
Have a good weekend x
