Felt

25th June 2014

Started the day with a walk along the prom on this cool, breezy and cloudy day....


....I love watching the waves creep in over the sand in their wavy lines....


.....simple fencing has been erected in front of the dunes that were washed away in the storms.

Home, coffee and gardening in the park, the ground is so dry the weeds aren't growing!!

::::

Postman delivered a card that had been made by Jane from the Creative Group, the prompt for the postcard was 'House'....


...how cute is this, painted fabric, applique and hand stitching!

::::

I am trying to reclaim our loft space for my 'studio' so started by having a sort out, didn't get very far as most of the stuff belongs to my children!! Think I won't be moving in any time soon!!

::::

Then I made two pieces of felt by layering lots of bits of fleece on a piece of pre felt that I found in my stash. No plan, just layered under net and embellished, have I mentioned how much I am enjoying using my new toy??!


Front....


....back, more muted.


Then I used another piece of pre-felt and more oddments of fleece....


...roughly embellished to secure...


...then worked both lengthways and widthways...


...front...


...back....


....not sure what to do with them, maybe I will be inspired at Woolfest in Cockermouth this weekend....
