rocks and flowers


Felting wool to look like stones. They "resemble" river rocks and are about as big, I like to use them for pin cushions as the wool receives pins and needles well, does not dull the sharpness or either.  Plus they look kind of cool, pin in a pebble, like sword in the stone.
It is all illusion, so they say.

I have been on a white flower jag lately, these are large, needle felted from raw roving,  I intended  to make them small , for lapels or on coats, but got a little carried away. The largest one is seven inches across, too big for a lapel , unless you happen to shop at clowns are us. 

I will try again... 
Getting carried away is one of my most annoying character flaws. 
I have so many to choose from, but "carried away" seems to top the list at the moment. 


Back to the studio today. 
will try to make smaller flower pins , will try to reign in my enthusiasm for "some is good, more is better"- Slow learner....
