Rainy days

What a miserable day. The rain poured and poured. The only way to spend it is in doors, all cosy.
I just want to say that my heart goes out to those across the UK who are experiencing severe flooding ♥

I had the day to myself,  so I did a bit more felting practice. Any one would think I have a cleaner, erm no I don't,  I just do a quick tidy n hope that will do!! 

Here they are . . .
Toadstool and mousey &
Dandelion clock

I am quite pleased with these, especially with the fact that I sold the toadstool one already today.

Flat felting

Hi all.

Just a quick post to show you my first attempt at flat needle felting. I know it's not perfect, but what does practice make? 

I cheated a little and used a wool mix felt sheet to practice my design on.

I chose flowers because I feel they are always a good starting point in any craft. I would love to do landscape scenery eventually.  There are some very talented people out there and I have seen some amazing pieces of 

I am now addicted. Oh no . . .

I have also made some 3D felted items, which I will show you soon.

Patience quilt dusted off.

Due to the new arrival of a cosy rug in our house.  I dug out my first ever patchwork quilt I made.

It's a bit dodgy in places, but it looks pretty good from a distance!!

I have had to do some running repairs on it. It's good as new(ish)!!!

Hopefully it will last a few more years.
