today in the studio ... wool pods

Felting wool sweaters isn't a science ... well - if it is, I am not a scientist - and sometimes the poor dears turn out so thick that there's no way I can run two layers of them through my serger. So I've been collecting these orphans - first unwanted and then altogether too shrunked-up - and today I'm carving some into a few pod-shaped bags.

It's satisfying work to piece these together and do a little freeform stitching - and the near silence of the old Adler is a nice change from the constant hum of the commercial serger motor.

Mr. Lentil is taking some pictures later, after he makes lunch for us, so I should have some new work up on the website tonight ... or tomorrow if time won't bend to our will.
