Happy New Year!

We’re ringing in 2011 with black eyed peas and mustard greens at our house tonight to bring us lots of luck and money this year. I think it’s gonna be a good one and I’m ready with my new bejeweled felt wall calendar that I just finished this afternoon.

I took Kat McTee’s Spangled Felt Calendar class at the Stitch Lab before Christmas. I love everything about the Stitch Lab, and this class was my new favorite. Kat designed and screen printed the felt calendar designs on wool felt and we got to choose between woodland, peacock, kitty, or spaceship motifs.

As you can see, I went with the woodland scene and bedazzled the heck out of it with felt cutouts, sequins, beads, pom poms, and a few stitches.

I used a tiny bit of felted wool so my fawn could be a white-tailed one.

My prickly hedgehog.

I couldn’t resist adding the gold sequin leaves. 2011 is sure to be a sparkly year.

    Clyde, Ada, and I saw a live barred owl and a live hedgehog at the Academy of Natural Sciences today. Clyde wants me to tell you that your owl and hedgehog look good. Just like the real ones.
