Wet Felting Bowls Class...


The Permission 2 Play members gathered

together to create Felt Bowls






How much FUN can you have with an

orange and pantyhose?



We are about to find out now!







The table is set for FUN!







Nancy Bryant is leading our class today








The oranges are wrapped in wool batting...







Then they are placed in pantyhose...







Then they are placed in a baggie

and soapy water is added...







Roll'em, Roll'em. Roll'em...

get those doggies Rolling Along!




After the fetling process is complete:



Cut a hold in the top to remove the orange...







Lots of pulling and stretching to create a hole

large enough to pop the orange out...




Here comes the Show 'n Tell:





























































































































This is our 9th year of P2P classes...

Trail Camera.....Bottle Calves




Bottle Babies



The bottle calves are doing quite well.

They drink a 3 pint bottle of milk 3 x daily.

I have offered them hay and grain.

The red grain box is always empty?

I wanted to see who was eating all of the grain?

I thought maybe the barn swallows 

were eating it?

Maybe our chickens were eating it?


We set up the trail camera in the calf pen

to see who was eating the grain...

It looks like Number 25 

is eating most of the grain.

Whole Cloth....Progress



Earlier this month I completed the

design work on paper

for my next whole cloth quilt...




Layer 1.....Basic Design Lines






Layer 2.....Larger Motifs





Layer 3....Fill Work

36 inch square quilt size

You are looking through all 3 layers 

of the design on paper.



The border feathers on this design are

very large.

I decided to baste up a practice sandwich

so I could practice stitching out 

very large feathers...



After the feather work,

I decided to finish off the sandwich with some

background fills...






I used this grid stencil to chalk out

the lines for the right side of the sandwich...






Then I stitched a double wedding ring design

within the straight line grid work.






I chalked out a clam shell stencil

for the left side of the sandwich...






I stitched 2 little eyelashes on the inside

of each clam shell shape.






It was good feather stitching practice

as well as background fill work FUN!

I may turn this into a tote bag or

tablerunner?




Yesterday I transferred the design lines

from the paper onto the satin fabric

using a light box and blue water erase pen:


I only need the main design lines 

traced onto fabric.

The remainder of the design is 

free motion stitching.


This is now basted into a 

36 inch square quilting sandwich 

and is ready to go under the needle.


I will take photos and share my progress

as I machine quilt this whole cloth quilt.

More To Come!
