Im filled with excitment..

I'm filled with excitement this morning and I don't know why. The moon and stars must be doing it to me. I have nothing going on today that is really that interesting.. but I do like this strange euphoria I'm feeling :)

Last night I worked on the word challenge piece, and Ive decided for certain I much rather do flat felted paintings than 3-d sculptures. I could barely keep my eyes open by 8:30 pm. So I went to bed. The up side is I got plenty of sleep, my family is still in their beds and I have the whole house to myself for a few hours.

I'm working on another thing that has been floating around my head. It is a way for me to combine another of my craft loves with felt. I am making a necklace with a silver center pendant woven through with long cords felted from merino and silk. I have only just begun, I am now at the point where I have to decide if I should add a stone to the piece, or perhaps some sort of bead work or perhaps some silver baubles soldered on here and there. I have a number of sketches and ideas. Of course everything is so easy to make in your imagination. Nothing ever comes out the way I first imagined it... so this is a WIP ( work in progress)
The wonderful thing is silver and felt look great mixed together, so I'm excited to see what will become of this.
I hope everyone who falls through the w.w.web and lands here in my blog has a happy, crafty and creative weekend!

  1. Hey Cytel. Your necklace idea has me intrigued. Can't wait to see the finished project. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I had such a wonderful time on the class and I'm really looking forward to experimenting with my new sewing skills on felt. So more to come!
