Jouf, those slippers are amazing!!! Nice job!!!

I've never tried felting before. That looks like a really fun project though, I may have to give it a try, when I find some time to work on personal projects!

As I said, I've never done felting, but I've read that a good way to do it is in the washing machine, with hot water, and a pair of jeans thrown in to promote agitation. I would think it would work best with the machine only half full of water or so. I've read you can felt them this way, and just keep checking on them, and trying them on!, until they're the right size! I can see how doing it by hand would work, too, but I'm lazy so I'll probably try the machine first! LOL!

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
