I found these old shoes this morning....over 12 years old. Since I was going to paint I needed something comfy but I wouldn't mind if they got paint on them. Unfortunately where the sole meet the top at the stitching it gave way and pretty soon my toes were hanging out the end. So what is a girl's best friend (besides fiber, I mean)
It worked, too! I could call these my 'PreFelt' shoes as they were used in the studio before felting began. Sorry, I just couldn't resist. Oh, there I go again.
I'm going to whine a bit now. It was absolutely stunning outside today....the sun, the breeze, the temp..I only took a lunch break and a short walk with the dogs.
These are cinnamon ferns on the edge of the swamp. I also noticed lots of these.
Can it be possible? It is only August....well, almost September. When I woke up this morning it was 47degreesF outside! The Season's Change is upon us. I love the colors of Fall. It inspired me to try a little experiment....Felt background and a little color on the top.
I have several ideas as to where this can go and I leave tomorrow for a Felting Retreat in New York. I'll be back in a week. But...I'll be taking the camera and the computer...so I may have some pictures from the project.
Now, I'm off for a dose of ibuprofen after all that painting of the ceiling ooooooohhh, my neck. I may have to have a glass (or two) of wine to relax those painting shoulders.
