Well after a successful move back to the UK , followed by two weeks unpacking , and a family Christmas and New Year, I need to start felting again. In truth we are far from unpacked but the essentials are sorted and now is mostly just a question of time before some modifications to the house can be organized and its dry enough to tackle the jungle of the garden
I have temporarily installed my sewing machine on a small table in the study and put a felting table in the conservatory so nothing is stopping me – except I am not sure what to do ! Before I left the Netherlands I put in my pop up felting studio, some jewellery making partial felt and some beads , but I am not inspired to make any jewellery right now. I have in my stash of fibres some beautiful fibres that I bought from Meervilt, it’s a mix of European steenschaap and New Zealand Merino and is lovely and bouncy. I think tomorrow having found these fibres in my sea of unpacked boxes I shall make some felt samples and hopefully that will act as a spring board for greater things.
I am off to a masterclass at Artybird on Thursday so I also need to get some work together to take to that , realistically the only thing I can take in my small autumn pieces which I have been embroidering over that last month . This has been more of a stitching practise than anything else.
I also have this cheerful bright piece where I am in progress with some gold stitching.
