i've spent most of my evening reading about artist/stylist/designer/felter, ashley helvey, on the interwebs. i've been following her blog for a while now but just discovered the amazing hand-felted pieces she makes from organic & predator-friendly raw california wool. lucky for you west-coasters, she teaches the occasional workshop at various places in l.a./portland/seattle, and of course, i'm now inspired to add felt-making to my list of art-craft to-do's. you can read an interesting interview on ashes & milk in which she describes her fascinating process.

her amusing "feet felt" video from her youtube channel:
absolutely beautiful & inspiring work!
