Zombie miraculously recovers from stupor and makes more needle felt and art scarves !

Above are my two latest felties posing in front of my first "winged beastie ". Because I was so tired this past week...I decided to work smaller then my usual 12-18 inch felties and these guys are only about 6 inches .

I also finished up several wet felt scarves and have been really trying hard to create more thin, drapey fabric with only two thin layers of merino with silk bells on either one side or both . I like to make each side of the scarf different so that it you can have two scarves for the price of one . Although I designed them originally with the idea that they would be a wrap around the neck winter type scarf......I think they actually look cooler just worn draped around the neck and hanging down . Like hanging an abstract painting on your boobs . Now when guys eyes end up on that area you can just assume it is in appreciation of your art scarf .

Sorry about some of the blurry pictures but I lost my light about half way through....

The above are only 4 scarves but with the different front and back it does look like more .  Now the real challenge for me will be seeing if I can get these listed on Etsy before spring .

I'm so tired I want to cry............

I have felt like I was swimming underwater for the past few months...under water with concrete weights on my arms and legs and a bag over my head . I have considered going to the DR but even if I could afford it....they seem to be trained to respond to all female complaints ..."it's probably depression or maybe stress" . If I smoked or was "over weight" they would probably say that was the cause . What happened to Dr actually running tests ?  So....I keep felting when I am actually able to stay awake and hope that what ever this is clears up or kills me because I am soooo tired of being tired .

I'm not sure why, but my animals have been showing a bit of teeth lately.  I think it is my attempt to get them to smile, and like me, forced smiles do tend to look like your ready to bite someone rather then an actual smile .
 Other news.....I made an attempt to sew up some bags with the wet felt fabric I made last year . The design couldn't be any simpler but is still a challenge for my limited sewing skill, especially adding a lining .

 I found this tiny arm chair on the curb with a "free" sign and decided to chance any possible infestations.....seems OK so far and the cats love it .
