After nodding off upright for no more than twenty minutes at a time for at least a week, last night’s hard snooze from ten pm until 4.30 this morning seems like blessed beauty rest.

img_5068 This leaf is felted from a scrapped felt swatch… I love cutting these things by hand. I laid all the pieces out in puzzle-piece fashion and discovered that I had a leaf! Now, what to do with the leaf…

I am thinking a big messenger bag with this leaf appliqued onto the body of the bag. If anyone has any idea as to what this little leafy fellow would be good for, please let me know.

Leave a comment.

Or something.

I’ve begun a cowl, too (sorry, no pics [yet] but so far it’s kind of cute…)

My favorite of all the pictures taken of moi in the hat...

The hat is up on etsy and I’m excited. I debated taking pics with me wearing it, simply because I wondered if people would be eeked out to see someone wearing a hat that would potentially be on their own head.

I don’t know–reader, would you be worried if you saw your future hat being worn by some strange lady? I wish I had a head-form. Or a dress-form. Or better yet: BOTH!

I clenched my teeth, squeezed my

eyes shut tight and submitted (via the web-application) 80% of my Goddard app….


The felted hat is near finished: I steam-blocked it and now have only to sew on the band and the flower.

And running, too, I might add.

I am most def going to be turning in my grad-app on or before Monday. That would be the application to Goddard’s MFA Program. Whee!

I do have a good feeling about it. Watch, give it time, I’ll be saying: “OMG, I never should have applied, I am SUCH a loser!” Nonetheless…

I’m working on a hat (no pics as of yet [which is okay because it’s just some yarn on a cable wire strung between two needles right now, heheh]). I do need to take pictures of other stuff, though–like the Red Rose Gray hat. It’s totally inspired by that hat worn by Angelina Jolie in The Changeling. You know, that hat.

Except mine is grey. With a knitted flower on the side. Bah. I sense I’ll be forced to take a picture…….
