DDF - One Month

It's been a month since I started the Daily Dose of Fiber challenge and besides the cut finger, it went very well. I've managed to post every day and get at least 5 minutes of something creative every day. I'm going to continue but I don't think I'm going to keep track of the days for the full three months. Today, I finished the felt applique couching. I really like the result. I am sure that there will be more of these especially for decorating the inside of the yurt.

 Here's the finished applique with the green yarn couched all the way around.
 And a closer photo.

 Then I did a little research on art in the late Bronze age. I am not very inspired by this era.
 Here's a little more work in my sketchbook about the different symbols in the Kyrgyz rugs. These would all work for other felt applique pieces.
 Here's more about the Bronze age. We have our local meeting next week so I needed to do my "art history" homework.
 Over at the Felting and Fiber studio, I wrote a post several weeks ago about drawing. I decided to try a little of the goofy animal drawing on to a previously painted piece of paper. You are supposed to find the shapes from the paint and then draw into them to make an animal. So here is my little snail Stanley.
He was fun to draw and just took a few minutes.
