What iv been up to!

Just a quick post to show you what iv been doing.

This is a bag that I made when I first started felting. I cant say that I liked it, so I experimented by putting it in the washing machine. It was rather big, but its now shrunk down to a petite, cute size. Ideal for a little girl and I'm quite fond of it now!

Iv put together some Needle Felting Geode Kits for my stall. Iv had quite a few people asking me if I did kits, so ill see how these go.

Two more art fronted books.


and Oak Leaf

New felted soaps. I had quite a few small pieces of my varigated coloured wool left, so I felted the soap with it.

Well I'm off to make a flower brooch for my mums birthday and and pack the car for a fair tomorrow for Oxjam. Bye for now.............

Knitting and Stitching Show - London

We had a fabulous time and I have loads of ideas!! Bought to much, but as i said to my husband " You never see this stuff anywhere else!". My absolutist favoritist shop was there "Oliver Twist"!! I know you can get things cheaper else where, but they are always friendly, have wonderful colours and there things are of a good quality.

The exhibitions were wonderful and were very inspiring. Here are some pic's -

A wonderful boat in the entrance hall

Yarns suspended from the roof in the entrance hall

International felt Makers were there

Pieces which took my eye.......... that you could take photos of!

A quilt made out of Guinness cans!! Would of loved to of drank them!!!

This was my first time and wont be my last. It was defiantly worth traveling down too.
