Felting Crochet

I've been crafting like crazy these days, but find that I'm just not in the photographing mood.
My house is an explosion of crafting mess and I'm creating things every day, but it seems like it takes up too much time and energy to take pictures. That being said, this morning I made a half hearted attempt to get a few photos so I could share with you some of the projects I've been working on.
These are some bowls or baskets that I have crocheted with wool and then felted.

I've added some embroidery to some of them.

This little fuzzy one was made with handspun fiber that I purchased from a local  farm.
I love the extra fuzziness of this one.
It reminds me of a bird's nest.

I'm working on a variety of coasters as well. Here is an example of one.

I still have some finishing touches to add to these.

I've made some felted bags and hats too, but haven't gotten pictures yet.
I even have one of the hats boxed up and ready to ship to a friend without being photographed first.
I guess I'd rather be crafting.

See ya soon.

Felted Pebbles

I've been playing around with some felting lately.
I borrowed this idea from my dear friend Lisa over at Lil Fish Studios.
This is my 2nd attempt at felting rocks and I think I almost have it right.

They're still a bit too fuzzy, but thanks to some tips from Lisa, I'm pretty sure the next ones will be much better.

See ya soon.
