Finding beauty in the cold. I bundled up and took my camera out for a walk but the fresh window frost seemed to hold the most intrigue. It is lovely too, along the river’s edge where the water moves so fast that the cold can’t hold it still. It seems like a good time to make soup!

Craft (Felted Fossil Stones)

dsc_9692-copy_150dpi

Perhaps not the usual photography I post here but I’ve been quite busy making. These are a few of the wet felted ‘fossil stones’ I’ve been working on lately (they also double as pin cushions!). The gastropod and trilobite forms have been needle felted onto the rocks near the end of the wet felting process. Lots of fun to make.  : )

It’s not very green here yet but we are getting there.
