Felting Night at Greenaway

I invited a couple of friends over last night, put out a plate of goodies, and spilled my wool all over the table. I like the riotous tumble of color and texture.

Nicola was into making fuzzy animals, sheep from the wool that she plucked from barbed wire in Northumbria. Gwen wanted to make a picture of Noah, her son, and Myrah, her housemates daughter. Myrah and her folks are heading off to missions in warmer climes, so Gwen wanted them to remember playing in the snow together.

I’m still exploring tree themes, this time on a lovely wool sweater I found at value village. I started with an acorn, then a sprout, then a sapling, then the whole wang dang tree! It’s my felty meditation on the work of God in GOHOP and in the city…
