Needle Felting Class.....and Some Big News.

 Last Thursday night I taught  a needle felting class at LLCC here in Springfield.There was four ladies and one youth in the class.The class was two hours long and we filled it full.

Miss Gina took right to felting.We started with a flat piece for wool fabric so they could get the hang of the needles.Then each lady made a pin. 
Darcey made four things but this is the only picture that turned out.You can see the little blue hair-bow she made.
 My memory for names is so bad,I think this is Julie and she made the butterfly below.
 Mary Ann made the heart below.She also made a ball with layers of colors that we cut in half.
 Cynthia made this heart.
I think everyone had a fun time,I know I did.I don't think an blood was lost.

Now for the BIG NEWS......the Hogscald Holler will soon be coming to you from back at the Holler.Yes, we are moving back to Arkansas full time.I can't tell you how happy this makes me.Now I can get my studio done there and I can really get my art going.

Live Deeply and come is me at the Holler,

Playing in the Dye Pot...

 I spent yesterday playing with turning this white roving into pretty colors roving. I bought 10 lbs of roving a few months back.
 Can you say "PINK"? I am using Cushing Dyes for the color. Funny how the color looks so different  in the pot.
When you live in a apartment you have to make do with what you have.Two little wood latters in the shower as a drying rack.
I am going to have lots of new colors for needle felting.

Live Deeply and Enjoy Life,

Stolen Rugs.......Have Been Found!!!!!

Anonymous Lora said...
Good news! The rugs have been found. On July 8 there was a message in the rughookers group on yahoo. This was originally on Facebook ******************** Good News, The rugs have been found. A young man walking his dog found them in a plastic garbage bag along a bike trail. His dog was sniffing the bag and he opened it up and discovered the rugs. He attends the church where the rugs were taken from and had seen the flyers about the rugs. The rugs are in good condition with the exception of a few leaves and a musty odor. I want to thank everyone who helped to spread the word by sending my note out to groups, adding it to blogs and websites. Please resend to those same groups so everyone knows that the rugs have been found. I heard from so many of you expressing your concern and that confirmed to me the unique friendships that we have within the rug hooking community. Again thanks to all and have a wonderful summer, Norma Great News, Vicki

This Weekend....

 I did a little felting this weekend and this three little guys came out of that.I found the eyeballs at a thrift show and I just had to play with them.I did a few more little monsters but not done with them yet.
Sorry about the crop on the picture, some thing is going on with the program that I do that with.I am working on the this rug for a sweet young lady that I have got to know through War Eagle Craft Fair.Her and her mom make the cutest dolls of witch I have many now.I know she is so busy with her wedding that she will not see this.I am hoping to go down for the wedding.They are using dragonflies as the theme for the wedding.

Happy 4th of July.......

I hope you had a great 4th of July.This is a picture of the fireworks here in Springfield. My poor grand babies did not get to see any fireworks because of the fire-bans in Arkansas.So I tried to take some pictures for them.
 Adam and I started the day off with a trip to the farmer's market.As we walked I snapped this picture of the capital.This is the same street that they do the fireworks on.
One of the booths at the market.

Adam checking out the bake goods, that he can't even have.

Here is what we came home today, yum yum...

Two More Bite the Dust .....

I told you I was in a hooking mood. I just finished two more rugs. The one above is the bunny rug that I did for the needle felting class I taught at the NWA Hook-in.The whole bunny is needle felted and there is a little felting on the butterfly.
This little beauty is something I started to use up some of my worms.If you are a hooker you know what I mean about worm piling up.
I guess the next thing I have to do is finish the edges to the 6 rugs I have done now.As you may be able to tell, I like to hook but finishing is not my favorite thing to do.So I tend to stack up rugs till it looks bad, then I get the finishing done.
