Earth

I am fortunate to belong to a wonderful postcard  group called Postmark'd Art. We started doing element exchanges where you create a 12 x 12 inch piece based on the element then cut it into six 4 x 6 inch postcards. This exchanges element was "earth." For weeks I kicked myself for signing up for this exchange because I could not come up with an idea so I simply stopped thinking about it. While I was digging out my mailbox for the third day in a row, I was thinking about how much I was looking forward to digging in the dirt when suddenly I got the idea to needle felt. Once I got going all the stress and worrying that I had been doing evaporated. I even used some precious felt from my beloved Georgia (country not state) and lots of other roving that I had purchased but never used. I also felted in the little felt balls that were on one of my sweaters! It was almost as good as playing in the dirt.

  1. Gayle, Thanks. Me too. It was so tough putting them into the mail. I do see more felting in my future. Hugs, Karen
