While I'm recovering from my recent auto accident, I'll be making new things - gingerly, of course - who? me?
HEAR YE AND HERE YE - A NEW FELTED ENERGETIC POD EMERGES FROM THE DEPTHS OF A MESSY ARTROOM IN FREDERICK, MARYLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of those original PODS. In my "wild abandon" mood, I added a round Felted to the basic pod shape. I attached a Nuno Felted piece of cheesecloth to it. I'm usually not a bow person, but it's funky enough not to be frilly.
Then I got into my paints again in turquoise, green and yellow and kept working until I "felt" it was just right. See, I hardly ever plan on what I'm going to do next. Sometimes that gets me into trouble - most of the time, not. I'm lucky for sure.
I had this previously felted cord which just happened to be in the right colors so I attached it. Now that took a bit of doing because I did it last - here's where the trouble could have been. So, since that bow ubstructed where I wanted the cord to go, I just got out my turquoise embroidery thread and stitched and knotted it as I went. NO hiding the stitching for me.
I had two fabric beads which just happened to fit over the cord - phew! Oh, I made them.
The bow is so soft - nothing like nuno felting. The back of it is really nice because you see the white cheesecloth with little colored fibers coming through!
