Another Update from Margie S.

Hélène, the most talented, crafty gal I know.  She is famous for all her itty bitty knitted animals, her yard yarn bombing, felting.  You name it...Hélène does it.  This eagle is one of her latest creations.  His name is Ben.  I'll never forget show and tell one Easter when she started pulling the cutest little bunnies out of a bag.  They kept coming and coming and she made the comment how they seemed to be propagating in the bag. 

Gail H, a friend of mine felted these dryer balls for me.  As we talked about how she made them on the drive home Donna told us a real easy way to make them. 

Scrunch up a ball of aluminum foil and cover with several layers of rovings.  Then tuck each ball in a nylon stocking and throw them in your machine to felt them.  Presto!  Beautiful dryer balls.  I took some to my daughter in Seattle and she thought I had made them for her cat to play with.  She's anxious to try them in her dryer and if they work will never buy another box of bounce.  If you want  them to smell just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. 

Nature provides everything we need.  This pine tree became an ideal place to dry these felted scarves.  This picture should be submitted to Spin Off magazine.
