More Good News/Bad News
For the past few weeks I have been cleaning my studio and finding all kinds of treasures.
The good news is: I found some quiviut.
The bad news is: I have to dehair it.
If you have ever tried to dehair quiviut, it is a tedious process. Each gard hair has to be picked out. A tweezers is the most logical way. Time consuming, but the down is so soft it is worth the effort.
The good news is: I have a lot of wool dyed and some great colors.
The bad news is: I have a lot of wool dyed and very little storage space left. I live in a large house folks and it is full of wool. When you card wool it takes up even more space! So I have been felting. Needle felting and wet felting. I felted a bag I knit up on the knitting machine. I need to line it, but I think it is nice.
And a hat, I made a hat for my sister in law who started chemo last week.
I found some human hair and made a few tendrils of hair with felted tops so they stay together. I have to figure out how to attach them to the hat. I am thinking a safety pin may be the best solution.
