Projects Not Quite Understood

I have been doing some inventory lately, and going through several bins and bags of projects and supplies. 

Some projects are unfinished.  Or finished, but not quite understood.

Like this piece I felted months ago.

At first it was just meant to be a practice sample.  But now that I see it again, I kind of like it here on the black bookshelf.

If anything, every time I pass by it, it inspires me to felt more, so that is a good thing :)

Crocheted Bowl for a Sweet Pine Cone

I found this little treasure on a walk a few weeks ago, and I kept it inside my purse for days. 

Finally, I decided to crochet it a little bowl and keep it inside.

Mossy Shawl

I crocheted this a while ago and just found it!

This shawl was one of those projects where I tried to follow a certain pattern, but then I lost track and made the rest of it up.

This wool/silk/mohair blend yarn by Noro is so mossy and earthy.  It's  super light and soft feel and mossy/earthy colors makes me want more of this for fall.

Forest Mandalas

After I returned from camping in the rainforest, I saw green.  I went to my yarn scraps and started crocheting circles from green yarns.

These are inspired by my love for circles, mandalas and the forest.

There are so many more mandalas to be made, and I will continue to crochet more circles, maybe connect them and create a wall hanging for our kitchen.   It is so wonderful when nature inspires creativity.
