Scrappy Jacket and Messy Again

Last time I showed you the scarves I had made using up the scraps of felt that I had on hand. Well, I decided to make a "Scrappy Jacket." As you can see, it's the green one with all the stuff on it. It looks much better in "real life." Some of you will still say,  "Why did she ruin that jacket?"

The second jacket was going to be very plain. I have a hard time doing plain, I can't do plain. As I laid out the felt, I added one kind of silk, then another, and still another. Then when the jacket was finished, I needle felted pieces of silk chiffon into it. As I said, I don't seem to be able to do plain.

And then I come to what was once a wonderfully organized room. Remember when I first got "Big Red." I cleaned and organized my work room and it looked so much better. Well now I have been getting ready for this fair and everything has gone totally and messily downhill. Every surface is covered with unfinished projects. I need to stop creating and start finishing.

 I have this whole suitcase full, and still have all these things to finish. As my timeline draws near I am getting more panicked. Help!!! I thought that I had all this time, and now I may have to rush. I have done it to myself. Wish me luck.


  1. Good luck with the fair. When is it? I like the jackets very much. You have a lovely collection of wraps and jackets to exhibit.

  2. I'm wishing you lots of luck with the finishing and the fair. You have been so busy you deserve to be successful. The jackets are lovely.

  3. Are you going to be at OFFF? If so I will see you there and will look forward to meeting you and seeing your lovely pieces IRL.
