Happy New Year!
Perhaps spending New Year's Eve (afternoon) at the laundromat is not most people's idea of ushering in the new year. But seeing that huge bundle of old wool scarves, sweaters and blankets felting up in the hot, soapy water was pretty exciting for this textile junkie! I couldn't wait to get it all home so I could start playing! Much of the wool will be used in my new rug hooking projects; the thicker pieces can be turned into tea cozies, cell phone cases, hot pads ..... the sky's the limit. I especially like this red tartan wool scarf - fringe felted, but in tact - that I turned into a whimsical cell phone case (two cases are available in Gallery)
