Side note to this posting: This is our dining room table. We have barely been able to use it for the last 6 weeks because I am constantly working on some felt project. This is getting out of hand, I need a studio!
We are heading up to the Seattle Opera tonight to see the Magic Flute and I wanted to make something special to wear for the event. All black is my usual uniform to these sort of events so I thought a colorful felted nuno scarf would help punch up my look a bit.
Orange is my favorite color. (OK, orange and lime green. And fuchsia....and turquoise.) I haven't liked the look of felting over white silk so I bought some Rit dyes in order to make some bolder scarves.
I am also still very much in love with my new dressform.
It makes the scarves look so much more interesting!
I was digging around in boxes last night trying to find the pair of opera glasses that I thought I had. Turns out that "smallish binoculars" might better describe them; I guess I will be renting some at the opera tonight after all.
The Magic Flute was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791 and he died just a couple of months after its premiere. Supposedly it is referencing the ideology of Free Masons but I am looking forward to the extravagant sets and costumes.
