Slippers–and camellias–again!

image

Every time I think I can’t make another pair of Bev Galeskas’ Felted Clogs… I turn out to be wrong.  I made two purple pairs and a blue pair… one purple pair were felted as dinner entertainment in order to be a good fit for the recipient.  One blue pair await felting.  And this pair await a recipient.  I think the kicker is the number of people who speak to me about slipper love when it’s cold!  And perhaps, how quickly I can whip out a pair of these nowadays.  Long gone are the days when row 2 took me twenty minutes and I had to lie on the couch for the rest of the evening afterward.  Have I said before that I hope Bev Galeskas is a rich woman?  When I went to the web to get that link to the pattern, Ravelry said ‘Would you like to see 10525 projects made from this pattern and much more?’  I hope Bev did a great deal on royalties and that she isn’t facing the difficulty of some of those songwriters whose work only made other folk rich!

And, not to be deterred by the comedy of errors of my recent camellia experiment, I decided I may as well pick up the remaining fallen camellias and preservation dye with them (the first such jar is looking good).  Some days, my goals have to be small!

  1. Bev Galeskas really got us hooked on felting three-dimensionally didn’t she? She was an amazing, talented woman but unfortunately passed away a few years ago–way too early. Glad her creativity has inspired so many.

    • Dear Marilyn, I didn’t know that Bev Galeskas had passed away. Her clogs were certainly the first thing I ever felted other than a knitting needle cosy 🙂 She has left quite a legacy, one I hope she would have been proud of.
