Fiber Art for a Friend

Yesterday I worked on another piece for the silent auction for a friend. I made a felted piece using acrylic felt for the base adding alpaca and wool roving, organza, yarns, inchies from a previous project for accents and colored pearls. It's in a wood frame. I'm very pleased with how this developed. I tried not to be premeditated but more organic in the making of it.

I feel fulfilled by this piece and I'm going to have a hard time parting with it. I might even bid and buy it back.

Fund Raiser for a Friend

My nephews wife is a good friend and she has a brain tumor. She is a young mother of 2 beautiful little girls, and she is currently undergoing treatment after surgery. On April 6th there will be a Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction fundraiser held in her benefit at the Hayward Wesleyan Church in Hayward WI. The event starts at 8 am and goes until 11 am.

She is a fellow quilter, fiber artist, and crafter. The fundraiser will have many lovely handmade items being auctioned and I plan to donate several things. The picture is of a felted art scarf I made tonight for it. It's felted organza and wool yarn on black felted wool. I've also attached a glass pendant that I made.

If you are in the Hayward area on April 6th, please stop by and bid on something to help out a good friend.
