Robin Square

27th March 2014

I worked hard in Pilates this morning and think I might be aware of my muscles tomorrow!!

Lovely home-made soup and crusty bread for lunch with friends then home to bake a Madeira Cake and a Banana and Cranberry Loaf then I managed to stitch my felted robin.......



..quite pleased with the result!

::::

Remember I tried to wet felt some knitted wool and it didn't work and Joanne offered to put them in a 60 degree wash...



...only slight shrinkage on these samples....




....before washing and wet felting....


....not much effect on the wool knitted on the fine needles but the large needle sample felted quite well..


....I am going to see if I can cut an elephant shape from this sample, hope it doesn't fray!


Watch this space!!
