I finally finished this "motto pillow" inspired by Laura Kemshall. It kept my hands experimenting and busy while watching my shows. I made a smaller version earlier for a friend and enjoyed it so much I wanted to play with the idea again. This one is for another friend. The sentiment is for her, but it works for me as well.
Does anyone have a good way to mark on felt? I'd like to do one of these for Halloween and put the quote directly on the felt. While all the rest is impromptu and unscripted, I need a guide for embroidering a quote. I usually use pencil or fabric markers--which don't work directly on felt. No luck with a chalk marker either.
In the meantime, I'm playing with some of the left over scraps of felt.
I have mail art to share, letters to answer, envelopes and postcards to make, book reviews to write for my other blog...but mustering the energy or enthusiasm has been pretty haphazard lately. It is as if I have an attention deficit for anything that requires actual thought. My response is a typical displacement activity-- needle and thread and a few beads. Because it is soothing to watch mindless episodes of dramas and keep my hands active. Lowers anxiety when the weather starts messing with my aura. :)
