This lovely page came today from Barbara in Germany. She has done some lovely embroidery on it to make the flowers really stand out. She also was kind enough to add somesweet little doves in the package. The photos makes them look big but they are only about a centimetre across.
Woo hoo, I have actually made a small piece of felt which will probably become a spectacle case. I know it doesn't look much, I have shown photos of each side of it, haven't decided which one to use yet. I made some nuno felt in a workshop many years ago and could barely move for several days afterwards. The energetic exercise needed for the felting did nothing to help my arthritis. I swore off felting for ever after - till embellishers appeared on the scene. Then Jacinta persuaded me that using the bubblewrap method of wet felting is very gentle so I have tried again. I almost added some extra bits on top of the fibres, but I was sure I wouldn't really be able to make felt, so I chickened out. I am hooked. This piece which is about 35cm x 23cm only took about 3 hours in fits and starts...................now I want some more time in the day to make some more! I have tried several times to add a link to Jacinta's name with no success. Click on the link on my side bar to get to her blog.
I am finally able to drive the car again, but still taking Bill supermarket shopping with me - I hope today was the last time. he is not very patient when I sometimes have to double back to an aisle at the other end of the shop because I have forgotten where an item is shelved. Mind you, I am not happy with doing that either, but if I give up and go home I only have to come back later! Time to do some watering in the garden, no sign of rain and everything is drying out.
