When I left work today, I just wanted to come home and hide under the covers. It was NOT a very good day. Actually it ended up really grim. However, there was a surprise awaiting me on my front porch.
Paul was very kind and found some felted wool for me at Rhinebeck! When we chatted before he went, I said that I was looking around here in thrift stores for woolen sweaters that I could felt but they seem to be few and far between..or non-existant in this area. So not only did he send me the felted wool, but also two of his very own sweaters that he no longer wore. I feel really badly about felting them but I shall overcome those feelings because I really really need some bigger pieces of fabric.
The felted sheets are an alpaca/wool blend and they are sooooooooo soft. And I'm really amazed. They are just like a nice woolen fabric..but totally different from the pieces I got at that guy that vendored at our fiber thingy. See how these are sort of puffy and you can see needle puncture rows? It's a solid fabric..it just looks all different. Is this fun or what??
The wool was wrapped neatly in tissue with a piece of heavier paper over the top. And look what the heavier paper was! I'm going to be shopping for a poster frame this weekend. Way cool!
Only one small ummm, challenge perhaps. It seems that Hershey is inordinately fond of the darker piece and was doing his best to appear immoveable. Too bad sweetie..it's mine, all mine! Thanks loads Paul!!
