Finally brought out my embellishing machine to make some needle felted tags. The base was wet felted and then, with the embellisher, I added threads, sliver of roving, lace, yarn, etc. I hand stitched some beads on the 1.5"x3.5" pieces. I fused some stiffener between the felted piece and piece of ribbon and then did a blanket stitch around the edge. Gave several as gifts and I hung one on my camera with a name & address label on the ribbon side. All just for fun.

While walking through Morningside Park in NYC, there was a mom and daughter making leaf purses. She stitched 2 leaves together with a green vine and interlaced flowers in the stitching. I thought it was such a great idea that I tried it with Skye. We used fig leaves and Skye picked flowers from the garden. It turned out beautiful.


Just got back from a one week visit to NYC. Spent a day in the garment district shopping, went to MOMA, Guggenheim, Cooper-Hewitt Museum (great felting exhibit), American Folk Art Museum (Paula Nadelstern exhibit), Roosevelt Tram, 42nd St. Library, Soho, Washington Square Park, Morningside Park, Top of Rockefeller Center, Conservatory Gardens in Central Park, Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, and the Empire Quilt Guild Meeting. Sooooo tired, but had a great time. If you'd like to see some NYC pictures, click on the slideshow.
