I have been slowly getting back to doing what I love best, I can just get lost in the process. I'm so understanding of my students when they take a while to do the layout of a project because I can so relate, I love it so (although I do have to push myself along as well as those in class or we would never finish! This is a luxurious alpaca/silk prefelt that I had in my stash for ages - to begin trying to get back to normal, I had to consider standing time as my back still gets tired and helped. The prefelt was deep grey with a fine layer of black merino on top. Some of the fabrics I used were interesting bits and pieces that I had dyed with pomegranate wrapped inside and iron water. The fascinating thing is that two of the pieces were cheesecloth and two others silk; now that they are felted in, I truly cannot tell the difference in quality. Other materials used were silk velvet burnout, silk hankies and silk carrier rods. It is very, very soft and warm.
