wool felt

The first order of wool felt came in, yay! I ordered it from Prairie Point Junctions shop site, Wool Felt Central. On tuesday. And i already got it. AWESOME!

The site was suggested to me by both Megan from Princess Lasertron and Larissa from mmmcrafts. So many scrumptious colors to choose from! And much nicer than that cheap stuff at the craft store.

Though my photo is a bit overly blue, I did find the colors to be what I expected from the pics at their site. Seen here is the Plenty of Pinks bundle, Buttercream, Beige, Mac & Cheese, English Rose, Pink Grapefruit, Plum, Robins Egg Blue, and Peacock. Look at their site though to really see the colors : 12×18 Wool Felt Central.

A bit late in coming, as this happened in September. We stayed mostly at my aunt and uncles cabin in northern michigan (thank you Judy and Bill:D:D:D), visited sault st marie for a train ride in canada, and ventured around the UP a bit. It was incredibly relaxing – Boy even felt good at being disconnected from the internet and phone and therefore all things work-related. Workaholism is a terrible thing :P

I found a tutorial the other day to make a rose out of felt, but it was such an easy idea that i didnt save the address to give the tutes owner her due. There are lots of ways though, because when i tried googling for the one I stumbled upon there are many options. The first one looked a bit flat, so i did the spiral cut in waves and it suited me more. The idea i used is simple : cut a wavy circle, then cut it into a spiral, and wrap from the outside in. Secure with glue or thread.

I decided that one of them would look cute on my curtain for now.

As you can see, i still have a ways to go with better photos. But now im going to start working with the cameras own settings and see how better i fair (genius, right?). Boy keeps trying to convince me to buy a new camera, and maybe thats what i need. But for now i work with what i got.

Do you like the border on the photos?
