it is super chilly here this morning. think it got down into the 40's last night. i do understand the ridiculous that sounds to someone who lives in, say, the middle of Iowa on a farm, but hey... gimme a break! i think we need to get a space heater cause we dont have central heating. hot in the summer, cold in the winter.

even though it's chilly here, it's just not cold enough to take advantage of all the fun wintery-type things that i miss. like coats & mittens & scarves & snow boots & fireplaces. here are some adorable wool felted mittens that i saw on one of my favorite blogs.

they are awesome and made by a felt artist named Inger. she lives in norway and is an amazing wet-felting artist who always has fun & interesting ways to make scarves & hats & shawls. they help me feel warm thinking about how cozy they must be!!!

and as promised...

he's not completely done yet. there is one more thing i have to add, but that might take me a couple of days. it's kinda involved. i think he turned out well. not bad for my first attempt at a figure. i've never been into making figurative work, so he's alright. still need to work on that darned detail thing. at least the kind of detail that i want to do.
