Cupid's Ride

"Cupid's Ride" is ready for eBay, and hopefully will ride into someones heart.
This piece has fiber felted into wool and seed beads sewn thru. I crazy quilted the corners on. This is ATC size (2 1/2 x 3 1/2)

More Snowmobile Pics

We went snowmobiling again today, and I wanted to share some more pictures. In this first one there is a mountain in the distance between the pine trees, it is Mt. Timpanogos, it is the second highest mountain in Utah's Wasatch Range, with an elevation of 11,747 feet above sea level. As you can see, we were pretty high in elevation too!This next picture is just some of the area we went thru.
And this last one [click to enlarge] may not look like much, but it is a huge steep hill that is funner than any rollercoaster or amusement park ride ever. We point our snowmobiles straight up and in a standing position give it all it's got, go as high as we can, then let the machine turn and head down - what seems like straight down. The adrenaline rush is out of this world!
And now... I'm sore and tired!

Valentine ATC's

These were made using black acrylic felt, I chain stitched the hearts, then felted in some yarn fibers, then added the sequins and beads. Similar to the Christmas trees I made. These are eBay items. I need to get busy and finish up at least one more thing for tomorrow's listings.
Click to enlarge pictures - to see embellishments.
Size of these is 2 1/2" X 3 1/2"

I've been wondering what felting is for a looooong time, and saw it mentioned on Micki's blog. I just HAD to go buy myself a felting needle and base pad and give it a try. Now... all I did was add a little bit of fiber & yarn to an existing piece of wool felt... but it was really cool! All you do is stab this needle thingy into the fiber & felt... and it joins the fibers together. I did an ATC size, added an iron on picture, did my feather stitch, added some beads, and wala... here's what I got:
Now my visions include landscapes of mountains and trees and sunsets - all felted... (yeah right). Need more supplies!! Or... wasn't I going to organize what I had with this new year and NOT buy new? Forget that.

Winter fun...

Early in the morning on the weekend... into the canyon and up to the mountains. Snowmobiles in tow. It was a bit too cold as the sun barely was trying to wake up.
We rode in beautiful mountain meadows and thru narrow roads in the trees.
We rode on a path that was steep down one side and steep up the other. I didn't blink.
And we were on top of the world.

Flowers from the Heart

I'm joining Sandy in submitting a piece for the Lovely Hearts fundraiser. This girl with flowers is on her way. Thank you Sandy (the blogger with the worlds biggest lovely heart) for turning me onto this opportunity to give to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Most of us are touched by cancer some way or another - be it ourselves or a friend or a family member. It robs. I will be very grateful someday to hear of more and more advances in kicking the nasty disease out of our lives.
