Saturday in the shop ...

... doesn't feel like the 4th of July!

Sloooooow day today.  Hope it's because everyone is shopping The Online Needlework Show and making their selections to send to us before the show ends at midnight Sunday/tomorrow night.  I know I've found several new designs that the shop CANNOT live without having .. and one that I must do .. now (yeah, like that's going to happen).  I collect the poster art prints of Theophile-Alexandre-Steinlen and found one of my larger framed posters converted into cross stitch!  Now if I could ONLY remember WHO it's by!!  I'll have to cruise the entire show designer listing again to find it (note to self .. should have written it down.  where's the paper?  what happened to my pen?  what was I doing??)

Did get creative though.  I had some wool batting here and .. showed LouAnn how to create a wet felted vessel - bowl - container - whatever.  It's drying in the bathroom right now.  Didn't have my steamer with me but managed to 'create' some defination to the sides without it.
it's quite plumy-purple and is shown here "upside down" while drying out.

I also decided to open an Etsy store (today) with some of my felted sculptures, pincushions and vessels.  Just a few things in there right now, but more will be added as they're created. 
I have such second thoughts about an Etsy store ... it makes ME think that by doing so, I "think" I'm really good, and I don't feel that way about me at all.  Don't know .. maybe this will bring some extra monies into the shop, maybe not.  We'll see.  My store name is   Deb Felt It   and the address is
