One of our loosening up experiments was the felting of a pincushion. Looks like an UFO, doesn't it? Plus we made these small pins with shrinking plastic. That was fun! Later we tried to achieve a somewhat trapunto effect by quilting a piece of "fabric" made by felting rovings, fabric and other stuff together. At last Sara had a challenge for us. We had to randomly chose five words from a book and make a piece using these. Mine were the words location, glass, hall, staircase and girls. This really forced us to work outside our comfort zone.
