embellishments

I have made many hats & many embellishments.  I’ve experimented for a while and learned some new techniques… and now just putting it all together. One of the signature ornaments for upcoming design is a well-groomed pompom attached to a nice plump i-cord.

With all of these pompoms on i-cord,

I am reminding myself a little of Horton Hears A Who…

Anyway, I have decided the best way to make pompoms involves some felting, and a lot of trimming, and last a good brushing with a rigid brow or mustache comb, as I am doing for these braid tassels…


Jeff is now in Cusco, and I have the whole thing planned to run with legs when he, his son & daughter begin their trek to Machu Picchu, and all the while I am working at this frantically most all of everyday.

Hermit-ing out in the mountains with Emma, the cool has receded and the sun has finally arrived.  Everything in its place, and life is good.

    • Thanks Sorcha, and let me tell you… I was SO tempted to buy a pompom maker gadget at Michaels but I have resisted temptation time after time, sticking to my old cardboard cut out method. xx
