New Lockerhooked Pillow.

The front is done, and I have the back about 1/3 of the way done.
I really like the way this turned out and am anxious to finish it. First I have an order for two
bracelets that I need to get done. This pillow again is made from only locally grown and processed wool. I'm bummed because I contacted the lady I got the fleeces from and the one that produced all of the lovely white wool died. I love that wool! I blended it with a little blue
to get the mottled background and then used grey/brown shetland from my friend Sue, and the goat is out of dark grey overdyed blue/turquoise from the same lady that had the white wool.
I have to process a little more wool to finish the back of the pillow.

Two New Scarves.

Here are my two latest Nuno Felted Scarves. The pictures don't make them look the right color. They are actually Cherry Red with Black Merino Fiber. This one is Carmen (yes, after the opera) It has gold Angeline carded into the black Fiber and then felted in. The beads are cherry, black and gold. Carmen sold yesterday!
This one is Opera - has a classy look to it and the felting is more simple. It is just in swirls. It has black and cherry red beading at the bottom in a simple pattern. This one doesn't have any of the gold. I really love the way this turned out. It is still for sale. I am about to have them up on my website as soon as I learn how to make the links work and how to publish it on the web. If you contact me before the website launch it is $40.00.
Price is $45.00 on website. (Ask for the Friends/Family discount if you are a friend/family!)
I dyed 4 more scarves the day I did these two so there will be more on the way soon. These two were for an order. I just wanted to give her a choice.
