Feather Tree Ornaments

During the Holiday I worked on a few things that could extend the use of feather trees once I put away my Christmas decorations.  I don't know about you but when I take everything down the house is just Blah both inside and out.  I usually leave up my feather trees so I can use them for Easter but Jan & Feb looking at a naked tree isn't very appealing.  So I am working on a few little characters for the Blah season to hang in my windows, cabinets and trees.   I will be making more bunnies, pups, chicks and kittens.  Some will be a bit larger for windows and smaller ones to hang on trees and cabinets. Let me know what you think...

Happy Holidays from Swan quarter House

I want to thank everyone for a Great 2015.  I hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas and Wishing Great things for you in the New Year!
I thought I would share a few pictures before I start to pack it all away.  



New From the Swan Quarter House Workshop

My Vacation from my day job is just about over but I was able to get quite a few items done while I have been off.  I hate to go back to work I had so much fun this week.  I have been decorating the house, a little shopping and happily creating in the workshop.  Happy Holidays!


A Productive evening in the Workshop!

Thank goodness for my workshop in the evenings as it keeps me sane.  I am a Buyer in my day job which sounds like it should be fun but I think I might be the wrong type of business to be a Buyer.  My very non-glamorous job entails getting parts for heavy equipment and supplies to keep things running in a Steel Mill.  Every day is pretty much the same, something breaks, parts are needed immediately and the most creative thing I do is find the best price and then get them delivered to the jobsite ASAP.  While my days aren't fun it all melts away when I grab some wool and my felting needle.  The action of poking a needle into wool about a million times to create a deer, Santa or bunny is a real stress reliever.  So all that being said here is the product of a day full of stress...

Hope everyone has a Great weekend!  Jodi



Holiday Happenings

I am working like a little elf trying to get some Holiday Creations done for the Holidays.  So far I only have the Donkey ready to put in my Etsy store but I have lots of things just waiting to be finished...  I will post pictures here as I start put them together and when I get them done.  


Barney's order shipped & Now starting Holiday Creations

I was working right up until the last minute and really didn't take many pictures but my creations are now at Barneys.  The theme this year was Icy blue and silver woodland animals.  I made penguins, deer, bunnies and foxes.  It was a happy day when we had everything packed up and ready to ship to Barneys!  I am busy making things for my Etsy store and will be posting a few pictures of what I am working on.






A Litte Trick or Treating is Going on n the Workshop!

A few Little Tricksters in in my Workshop begging for Treats!


Happy June!

I took a little break from felting to work on a few other projects.  Winter was really hard on my landscape so I have been working on the garden, lots of interior painting and some spring cleaning.  But now my little mini vacation is over because am so excited to say Barneys has asked me back to create pieces for the Holiday Season.  
Here are a few pictures of an old Rocker that has been in Dewey's family for a really long time.  As I was taking it apart I found lots of straw and horse hair and about a million upholstery tacks.  Dewey has some minor repairs to make but I hope to send it out to be upholstered this week.  I will have to show you how it turned out. 






I hope everyone is having a wonderful spring!  Jodi
