I’ve joined my daughter over on Ravelrywhere I can display knitted and felted creations. Take a peek! I usually only knit and felt during the winter months, so I am just getting started. Our 78 degree temperatures earlier this week have been replaced with frost-covered car windows this morning. These fluctuations give us a peek at the seasons others enjoy at greater length. It’s just the right amount of fall and winter for me!
What a blast! I so enjoyed creating a tuffet, named Ms Checks, under the direction of Sharyn Cole at Thimble Pleasures. Today we added the hardware and assembled our tuffets. Great fun!
The tuffet top is almost ready for upholstery. I’ve add some black and white checks that I think make the colors pop. Just a couple more steps and then it is ready for class tomorrow.
Miss Muffet, of course. Here are the next 2 stages in the process. On Friday we will meet again for the upholstery portion of the project…. and I’m told we will come home with a completed tuffet. Sure hope I can get all of that done in 4 hours!
Last Friday I spent 4 hours learning how to assemble the covering for a tuffet. This next Friday I will learn how to upholster and finish it. I can’t wait. The class is offered at Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill. Later that day, my sister made me aware of a wonderful web site that sells beautiful tuffets – Mackenzie-Childs. I especially like the wonderfully decorative painting of the feet. Have some fun exploring this web site.
Here is the completed first 1/8 of the tuffet covering. Gotta get stitchin’ to finish the next 7/8ths.
