Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day 6

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day 6 'in'

It’s day 6 of Let’s spell out, shall I? project, and I must say that it’s been quite difficult to concentrate on the project. My hubby and I have been glued to the TV and computer screens for news feeds since yesterday’s Japanese earthquake; we simply couldn’t believe the devastating consequences of the earthquake and Tsunami. My prayers and heart goes out to all that were affected by this disaster.

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day5

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day5 'th'

It’s day 5 of the Let’s spell out, shall I? project, and I’ve started making the second word, things, with new colour and a new font. This font is much more straightforward to make than the font I used for small. You might be wondering why I started to make ‘things’ – shouldn’t it be ‘good’ next? Well, I must confess; I picked up a font that was too tricky for me, and gave up after about 4 hours of trying. I will get there, I’m sure, but not today…(sigh)

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day3

Let' spell out, shall I? project, letter 'a'

It’s day 3 of the Let’s spell out, shall I? project, and this a is the best result so far. When I was deciding on which font to use in this project, I thought lowercase characters were much cuter than uppercase characters, and also thought that they suited the style of the site and the perky colours of the wool I wanted to use.

Needle felt ring holder

Needle felt ring holder

I love rings, and even if the colours fade or some parts get missing (I know, they are mostly cheap ones), I can’t seem to throw them away. And this means that I have quite a collection, and I need to organise them in a way that I don’t ‘forget’ about them. The solution? Needle felting, of course! Read More

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day2

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: m

Mmm…. Could be just me, but the m looks pretty yummy, don’t you think? The vivid yellow and the stripes in the background remind me of those sweets that mums tell kids not to eat (you know, the ones loaded with additives and artificial colours). Read More

Hello, hello!

Alphabet 'S' made by needle felting

So… this is the tiny, first baby step of Small Good Things. I’m very excited to grow this little blog of mine, and hoping that my creative fits keep you entertained (somehow) and make you go wild (someday)!

Well, I’ve been thinking what the first entry should be for a while, and decided to do a little project of needle felting over a week or so (and I shall call it, ahem, ‘Let’s spell out, shall I?’ project). Needle felting… If you’ve tried it before, you must already know how addictive it is. The colour, the texture, and the endless creative possibilities… all these by simply poking a needle to a ball of wool!

OK, I shouldn’t be too excited here, because… as you can see, my first creations for the project, the letter ‘S’ and the stars, are a bit wonky (and it took me, seriously, about 3 hours). It was the first time for me to make an alphabetical letter by needle felting, and it was much harder than making 3D objects. I’ll learn better (and quicker) way as the project progress, I guess. Fingers crossed!
