I really like to make stuff, paint stuff design stuff...
I like pottery and embroidery and painting and drawing and anything artistic. Most of right now I like to FELT! It is something new for me and I am amazed at what you can make with a bunch of sheep's wool. AMAZED! I have just started this craft but I felt when I started as though I should have done this all my life. Not that I am that good at it, but it just feels right!
For Christmas I tried to make most of the gifts we gave away. Since wool is pretty cheap it is nice to take a needle and some wool and come up with a gift that actually looks like what you started out to make. So, I made my grandbaby a little felted play mat with lots of different characters. It was a fun project and I hope she will like it. We don't know yet because the mail between Poland and USA is slllloooooowwww this time of year.
I also made some birds this year for a special young lady, my Helka. I made a bluebird of happiness to remind her that there will be better times and to always hope for good things.
I made a mama bird for her to remember that God always keeps us under His wings like a mama bird keeps her chicks.
Then I made two silly camels for my friends Ania and Katie. It was an inside joke but I hope that they liked the way the camels turned out. Just will remind them of good times we have had together.
I made some things I could not get pictures of but I enjoyed making. There was a black cat, A nativity scene, and several mushrooms which were just sooo cute, and another little bird for my Ola. I think I will just keep plugging away trying to learn this craft. I have been mostly needle felting this year but I also like wet felting. I am moving on to making scarves next. I made a few and they were pretty but I need to perfect my style a bit!
What do you like to make??
