But I’m not talking about those lovely geodes that come from the Gem and Mineral Show.
One of the things we did with the kids at Blue Lake this summer was to make geodes out of wool roving. It’s pretty easy to do. You make a super jumbo stack of roving, any and all colors. Then you roll and stuff it into a small bag, tie it tightly and run it through the washer and dryer.
I used a lot of the brightest colors I could find and the unsplit geode came out pretty darn lovely.
Now you generally only split a geode into two halves and enjoy the loveliness of the inside. And it was indeed lovely. But my plan was to make several thin slices–harder to do than I thought–and use them in a similar manner to the stone slices.
They are bold and bright and they can be sewn through or have beads added or…or…or…
I love new and exciting possibilities!
