Not only have I felt sick all week, but my computer appears to have picked up some sort of bug . I'm thinking it may have come in through an email that was supposedly from Facebook...(which I rarely visit), that had a suspicious attachment that I did not open . Perhaps just reading the email was enough to infect me ? I have also had an increase in spam in both my email and Blog comments section from some Asian porn sites....yuck . I will try and deleate them, now that I am at least temporarily back on-line .
Inspite of this.....(why doesn't spell check recognise "inspite" of as a word ?)...I did manage to do a little felting . Above is another bunny that is very solid Shetland wool blended batt with just about every fiber you can think of....Alpaca, firestar, silk, ect . I had hoped to finish it today before losing the light but, the ears took about 4 hours .
This is the whole crew for the week and doesn't include one of my few....just can't save him.....sculptures . I worked on a small rodent for several nights and could just not get the face right . The rodent here, turned out more bat faced then mouse faced, so I may have to add some leather wings .
The hands, feet and eyes are all an experiment with Femo and 6000 glue that I don't know if I ever want to try again . Perhaps they would have looked better if I had some Femo that wasn't black ? but it was the glueing that I hated...toxic and a pain to use . The fiber feet may not look as detailed but they sure smell better .
I'm not sure what type of reptile I was trying to make here....as usual, I just started felting and let the wool take me where it wanted to go . Maybe some day I will be able to tame it , but for now, it seems that I just have to follow where the fiber takes me .
I also managed to nuno felt two new Chiffon fabrics but there was not enough light to show the detail on them, so hope to get better pics. tomorrow.....if I can get on-line again . If not.....might have to go do some laptop shopping and put off fixing my car and teeth for another few months .
Happy felting !
