Fun With Felt (with a nod to Sheldon)

I'm still playing with felt here at Chez Magpie and today's 'offerings' are these....

The beginning of a salad


I'm also pondering how I will create a landscape quilt from this photo...

- Sometimes I come across something that has absolutely no bearing on anything but quite simply makes me laugh.  THIS is one of those things.  Just look at the expressions on their faces!!

- Good tutorial HERE for a box pouch - handy for lots of things!

- I really like THIS fabric house - and the blogger gives some photos of the process to make it (and if you click on some of her previous posts you can see more).  There's a 'translate' option so you can read more about it too.

- HERE's some eye candy for you to enjoy - be sure to explore her other galleries as well.

Today's quote..."You can't force someone to respect you, but you can refuse to be disrespected"

  3. Your new project looks exciting, good fun.
    The rabbits are funny, I can remember feeling like that on a sled when I was a kid!
    Fabulous work by the artist.

    1. My chuckle with the rabbits was the closed eyes of the 'driver' - not exactly safe!

  4. Oh boy... That car is going to be very interesting to watch grow into quilted art. I agree... those felted animals are hilarious. I liked the link to the fabric house. I have a recipe box that's made from fabric into the shape of a house. I didn't make it, but the pictures give me a very good idea of how it was made.
