Busy busy busy

Whew! What a couple of weeks it's been around here. Busy, busy, busy, and it doesn't look like my schedule is going to clear up anytime soon. It may be a bit before I get back to "normal" but I wanted to pop in and let you know what I've been working on.

Today was acorn day. I prepared gobs of wool for felting and did indeed get some felting done. I had gathered more acorn caps the other day when our weather was nice, and they've been cleaned and ready to go. I have a few projects in the works that are a slight departure from my standard acorns, and I can't wait to get them finished so I can share them with you.

I was also able to get two felted scarves made this weekend, something I truly enjoy. Yesterday it was a bit colder and the suds from the felting process froze to my work surface. Yikes! I'll get the finished products photographed soon.

I hope you're all enjoying your own projects and busy lives. As a parting shot, here is a photo of my pre-felted acorns on my workbench. Enjoy!

how do you do it!? do you just jam those little felted balls into a cap? glue? do you do it while the felt is still wet?

i'm a total felting novice, however my son and i have made felt candy canes. which rock.

Thank you so much, everyone for stopping in!

Kate - basically, yeah! :D Actually, I do let the felted balls dry first and then fit them to an appropriate-sized cap and then glue them in with a bit of glue. I hope you try it, it's an addictive little project.
