So what have I been up to lately? Handmade felted wool geode beads and more...



Although mainly I've been up to being pregnant and all that's involved with that, I've also found a little time to do some small feltmaking projects. Right now I have to stick to less physically active felting so I have been creating felted wool beads, balls, and cords, along with other little things. I can make these rather easily without overdoing it, and it helps me to continue to express my creative side which I feel the need to do every day. It also keeps me busy and my mind off of constantly wondering if today is the day when my little one will decide to arrive into the world.

As you can see in the photos, I just finished a batch of felted wool geode style beads. They are in all colors and sizes. These are so much fun to make because I always forget what colors are inside until I cut them open at the end of the felting process - it is like a little surprise present with each one! I don't know exactly what I will do with them yet. I may sell some as supplies in my Etsy shop, make some into pincushions, use some in jewelry and hair accessories, or a little bit of everything.

So that's what I've been up to as far as felting is concerned. As far as the pregnancy goes, all is well which I'm very thankful for. I have my 39 week checkup on Monday so it is not much longer!
