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!!!

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx

Lovely stranger: Yeah, sure ♥
Always love seeing people wear their makes at Woolfest (ps if you know this lovely lady, let me know) @jeaniebags I think she is friend of yours?
