Thank you for your input on Little Red's nose. She still has it, I have not done anything to it so far and I am beginning to think that I will leave it as it is, if nothing else than a reminder. I am not sure if I need to play further with that kind of nose, if any of the following wooly people will get similar one in the future or if this was just one time experiment. Currently I am making the grandmother, I don't know yet where she is going or what she will look like when done. I am trusting that at some point of the process I will know.
"Good day, Little Red."
It surprises me how much easier (only easier, not easy, almost every single creative endeavor is some kind of a battle) it is for me to work with fiber and in three dimension than trying to capture stuff on paper. I have been trying to draw and paint the forest but every single drawing has ended up in the waste basket. Frustrating! Last night, I decided to let the papers rest for a bit and returned to felting and began making the grandmother and right away felt at home.
"Where to so early, Little Red?"
I am very pleased with the wicked wolf. While I was making it, my daughter pointed out to me that in the end the wolf dies and I could not let this one die... I am not much of an illustrator! I was going to make the creatures for the original fairy tale and now I need to change the plot because I cannot let my wolf die. How do you feel? I am sure the wolf is only after the piece of cake and the bottle of wine in the picnic basket.
"Where does your grandmother live, Little Red?"
It seems to me we are going to get buried in the snow. It snowed almost all the yesterday and it is supposed to begin again soon and keep going for a good while. The wind is picking up and bringing cold air. I guess, normal winter will resume and January will begin to look and feel like January.
"What have you got in your basket?"
Wool with you,
PS. Carla Sonheim's courses are very friendly and easy approach and you certainly need no art training to participate.
