Felt Hearts

A goal for the New Year is to create more finished products with the wool from my flock.  With that in mind, I created my first FINISHED ornament from some of my pre-felt on New Years Eve.  It's the white heart, below.  I've done lots of play with the prefelts, doing little sample pieces with various embroidery stitches; some can be found on previous posts (if interested, use the pre-felt and embroidered felt labels).  I've displayed them at fairs and been asked if they're for sale.  This year I still want to play... but I'd like to play with a purpose!

I think I'm off to a good start.  Yesterday we visited my dear friend Amy and her fiance David for what is becoming an annual New Years Day open house.  Here's what our gift bottle of Merlot  looked!  Wishing a Happy, Healthy and Productive New Year to all.

Lovely to meet you and your flock today. After reading your blog I know what pokeweed looks like. Of course I have seen it hundreds of times, but didn't know what it was called. Loved the Meadow Muffins and my fingers are itching to spin my new fiber! Lynn
