a little detour.

I did  a little detour play this week cutting out blocks from the Marcus Wool I have. 
I love the BRIGHT colors, and finally got inspired to start the rug I hoped to make two years ago!  

I dusted off my Simplicity 12 needle felting machine. I LOVE playing with this thing... It is so much fun to needle felt so quickly. with this machine. I will still do a little hand detail stitching on these, I think for some detail. felt in some roving and other colors... perhaps add some silk ribbon... 

I have this large piece of pre felt,  that will help my rug become a nice sturdy rug.  
I'm going to make a whole bunch more brightly colored blocks and felt those as well before felting the entire thing together...  
I haven't quite decided what they will be, but at least I finally got started on it!
It is just satisfying think about it, and play in those beautifully bright colored wools!

Doesn't take to much to make me happy!

Just add color!
