Monday Love: Felted things







Some Felted things 
i made for the handmade section of our magazine KidsLife some time ago. Although i normally hate needlework of all kinds, sometimes in the cold season i like making little things out of Waldorf-wool - it's so soft and cozy, and the things have a life of their own. It's like therapy - try it!
Directions (in german) here!

Otherwise, just work from your intuition, like i do. You can't do much wrong here, it will always look nice. The heart and stones are made with a felting needle over a form of styropor. If you work with a felting needle, take care of your hands! It hurts, if you stitch yourself, but besides that it's fun - like a good kind of woodoo-magic!

P.S: There's a fun giveaway over at Obee Design - check it out!

  3. My dear, dear friend.....stress....oh yeah, do I know it. I am barely getting around to sit in front of my computer today. First let me say, you are so kind to come over and leave such kind comments; we are here to help eACH OTHER COPE....I LOVE TO BLOG and be with you and friends, because it relieves the stress from the work world. I am so tired, stressed myself, and it affects my teaching. We are on such tight schedules that I can't give the children what I want; I want to give them laughter as well as excellence, but we are always running from one place to another.....on another note, YOUR BIRD IS DARLING!!! DO YOU SELL THEM? CAN I BUY THIS ONE????? YOU ARE BRILLIANT! Oh dearest one, why are YOU stressed? I told you my story....email me whenever you wish....I care...

  8. My dear Martina,

    Oh the stress....and you have a huge project to always work on! I was just talking to my colleague with whom I am working closely this year and we are both asking, "How long can we keep up this pace?" I am hoping that once most of the "mystery" is taken out of the novelty of our new assignments this year, we can develop a rhythm that is not quite as taxing on our bodies and minds! Again, I came home last night only to eat and fall asleep immediately. But after a moment of complaining, I have to say that I am grateful for a job. This is just the way the work world is.....but you are smart to do yoga. I work out myself, but stretching will have to become part of my routine since I have developed a very tight lower back! Oh, time to go; so nice to hear from you again dearest.

    Have a calm day.....Anita

  17. Beautiful Martina!!! Oh I love what the Yogis have to say about youth! I better keep my back in shape! ANd what a nice thing to say about bloggers...I think that is so true, that those who make an effort, that shows they really care about communicating and making connections. Well said, and I feel that is what my goal is....to communicate joy and hope through the simple and whimsical side of life. I hope that you will always find peace and joy in whatever corner of life you find yourself dearest. You are so sweet.

    I wish you a relaxed evening and Friday...we are almost there to the weekend!!! Bisous, Anita
