...I've decided to do a batch of hand-made greeting cards. After making a birthday card for my wife (see below), I just could not stop the process. It is addictive! I am basically creating generic scenes with a collage of different materials. This batch is made from pages of an old book. There will also be some sewing involved, etc...

...just a little bit of wool, a washing machine and a pillow case, and there you have it. Felted placemats. I love the simplicity of the "granny square" pattern--I also love the way it felts. You can still see the general construction of the pattern after the felting process. And, once felted they are more durable and absorbent. Only 9 more to go for my set of 12.

I have stumbled upon some great found material for a piece to be part of my Urban Renewal collection. The product is plastic twine that is used to secure large round hay bails. I am in the process of working the twine into separate sections to be rolled into balls to make it easier to use--to crochet into floral forms and attached to a found piece of masonite peg board (which I still have to "find"). I would love it if the piece of peg board would come from an old appliance, such as a television or large stereo cabinet......more once I get it in the works.
