I've been following the light across my room

I've done a ton of felting lately, much of it inspired by birthdays: a friend's on the weekend (the pink pod with the lid) and both of my sisters in the past couple of weeks.

So this is the mystery piece I showed a glimpse of, pre-felting. I'm really happy with the colours and texture, a little less so with the final shape. It's just a little bit wonky, but, you know, hand made charm and all... The wonkiness is not obvious in these photos, but it is in person, at least to me and K.

I made a couple of little pods to go with it as a set, for E.

They are absolutely beautiful, Olivia! The yellow provides the perfect contrast (although I think it would look really lovely by itself too).

Oooh, the colors look like something under a heavy frost now that they are felted. Nice.

Wonky or not I really like the new shape. Hope you can get it to work to your satisfaction. :)
