I used to keep my sketches and inspirations in a drawer. That will no longer do. A trip to IKEA, a power drill and some anchors (and some culling of scraps that I no longer remember why I kept), and now I have an idea board on the wall my work table faces.
Plastic floor covering from Lowe's and some indoor/outdoor duct tape and the carpeting is now protected from water. Finally, I set out some materials and start back to work.
The skinny forest is not an original idea. Sometimes, to move into a new skill (felt painting here), I take someone else's design and see if I can make it in wool. This was from a photo of a mass-produced painting for sale in a catalog. Don't worry. I won't sell it.
Drip dry after felting. It is a good thing I know by now not to judge them when still wet. They are never as nice when you first hang them up to dry.

Yarn and wool become a scarf, a necklace, a belt. Your call.

It feels really good to be back at something like normal.
