It is a gray rainy Monday but on the plus side the snow is going down especially the snow banks which are very high and hard to see over. The icicles along the roof line have all plummetted to the ground in shattering crystal splendor!
A new week, a fresh start is always invigorating. I am putting together some workshops I will be teaching in April. More on that later. The Designer Crafts Connection is off to a great start with people enjoying the hopping and the treasure hunt! Winner will be announced on the 13th.We plan to have a special hop once a month and I will post schedule in what is new from the studio this week. Our next hop is this month on the 13th, wedding party favors as the season of brides approaches. With two daughters and of course myself there is bound to be a wedding sometime so I am looking forward to creating for the upcoming DC Connection!
One of my favorite crafting techniques is needle felting. For the February issue of Crafts n' Things I created a purse from a felted thrift store wool turtleneck. Who knew someday shrinking a wol sweater would be a good thing! I needle felted a flower design on the front and handle adding hot fix crystals. Just laying the wool in wavy lines with a loop here and there then needle felting it in place. Leaves are half a heart shape and the roses just a spiral of wool. Full instructions can be found in the February issue which is available in digital as well as print form of Crafts n' Things. Happy Crafting during National Craft Month! Debra, CEO!
