Felting Frenzy

Our time together at the Gilmer Get Away has come to an end. It looks like we have felted everything we could our hands on. Becky and Jackie are back home. A wintry mix kept me an extra day. I didn't mind at all. It was another day to play with beads and spend with Marcie and Judith. We started with needle felting on wool making pictures and designs. Becky made a sampler. Working magic with the needle and roving. Pushing the envelope she created her felted bag with a heart design. Jackie sat quietly in the corner needle felting a ladybug with a sun. Before we knew it she had a snowman scene completed with a beaded Christmas tree. After a trip to "Dressing Gaudy" Jackie was inspired to make a cell phone holder and glass case. Freeform Felting Marcie added her special touch with freeform felting to create a wonderful abstract bag. Her cleverness didn't stop there as Marcie felted the sides of her bag together. I believe she created a new technique. Felted Ball Necklaces and Lariats Bev made a black abstract. Judith made several felted ball necklaces. Sleeve Art by Bev and Judith So much was done in such a short time. I love our Gilmer Get Aways!

Did everyone notice that Bev's Art Deco lariat has ends that DO NOT match? We teased her about finally doing somehing that was not symetrical. It is beautiful.

All of you my dear friends have teased me into submission. I did made two ends that did not match and didn't even bat an eye lash. *grin*

I know you girls had a great get away. You are such talents, and with a streak! Wish I could have been there with you.
Love to you all,
