Finally Felted

After years of wanting to try wet felting and being encouraged by my old school friend Ali who has such a talent, I finally got my chance last Friday.

A lovely lady from my knit and natter group showed us how make fabric …

and these adorable little felt balls.

I think I may be seriously addicted to this new craft activity!

    Yes, it’s been too long. I am really enjoying the Knit Along patterns, hope to show off my knitting next month!


  3. I have enjoyed my few efforts at wet felting – I think it’s like being a child again, messing about with wool and water and generally having fun!

    OOOhH Tracey I love your forays into felt! Your flat piece has such lovely colours – really cool swirly bits and love those wibbly edges! Fab felty balls too – would love to reach in and have a squidge! The colours on the larger one are sooooo warm!
    Funny how we swapped crafts this weekend….was going to warn you felting is addictive…but so is crochet I have found!!
    Keep up all your fab woolly work!!!

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today

I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
