Crafting 365 - Day1

I joined this group on Flickr a couple of weeks ago. The mere act of joining caused me to hyperventilate. A craft a day? Even a bit of a craft a day! Holy moly--that's scary.

Now, here's me doing that Hollywood actress thing and saying--I must do what scares me. (Don't you just love when someone beautiful and famous says that about taking a role where she has to be ugly.) Actually I would say--I must do that which scares me, because the other construction is a bit like chalk on a blackboard to me. So--have I talked long enough that you forget what I'm doing here? No?

Then allow me to present my first entry in Crafting 365--oh, jesus, I'm gasping again............

This is a notebook cover that I needle-felted. The base is gray craft felt and the design (?) is done with three different shades of roving, plus bits of yarn from my stash. You're looking at it sideways because I didn't turn the photo around. Because...because...

Can I please go and breathe now??????


  1. Craft a day, knitting and decorating for the season??? Wow! That's progress!

    Do you find yourself "calling" things you do anyway a craft? Like cooking?

  2. Wow, that's great. the actual product and the idea of a craft a day. When does a craft cross the line into art?
    Please write some more about needle felting. I've never seen it before.

  3. sturdy girl: yes, I seem to have passed through the Valley, etc etc

    denise: I don't know when a craft becomes art. Maybe it's in the eye of the beholder?
    I'll write about needlefelting when I do some more....soon.


So--whaddaya think?
