#5 & 6 Heartful Handful Movement

Day 5
I'm really glad today for such great students who are keenly interested in the interaction of colour.

I'm thrilled for all the things we can do with a simple thing called wool.

I'm so happy when young women come here after school and eat up my ginger brownies.

I was inspired by this woman Irene Van der Wolf and her forward thinking about wool and felting and forms with holes in them, she is an innovator and an outside thinker!

I was also inspired by this sight:

I made this from some scraps laying around:

Day 6

I was grateful today for seeing old friends come by one by one as I was at the grocery store and chat with them for a few minutes today and for the three compliments I got about my 30s cloche hat downtown!!!!

I was glad, glad, glad to have a car to drive on my errands because the weather is all over the place.

I was grateful for Man doing the dishes up so I could write to you.

I was inspired today by this beautiful fabric I got from Marcy Tilton

And I also loved the sight of my wool, my squirrel and my birdhouse

Today I spent 10 minutes dyeing the above wool.


  1. I sometimes stop over and visit you here on your blog, I am not a woolie, but love seeing what others do with it.
    I just wanted to say I really enjoyed this post!

  2. Annie, Thank you for letting me know of your enjoyment and for stopping by.

  3. I've watched a few of these videos so far, and even though there are language issues, I think they're great! If you have a basic felting knowledge you can pretty much fill in the details. I love the one where she rolls up the wool and puts it in the holes in the foam, then felts them onto the pink wool.
