Long time no see! I have had a combination of a couple of really busy weeks leaving me no real time to write a post, followed by a rather quiet time with nothing much to write about!
Bit of disappointment on the Hobbycraft front. The project I was going to do for them was for Children in Need but unfortunately timescales were against us so we have agreed to postpone this until next year.
I have had another couple of workshops over the last month ..........
... this one at Countess Wear Village Hall (above)
.... and this one at the Courtenay Centre!
I'm very pleased to say that a great time and lots of fun was had by all - oh! and the girls all learnt to crochet!
I have started a wet felting course and am about half way through now. Wet felting is something I didn't think I would ever get into, but I am really enjoying this so far.
Here are my finished pieces over the last few weeks
I have been waiting for my last piece, the grey pot, to dry out thoroughly and now I think I may embellish it with a bit of needle felting and maybe a crochet edging. Next week we are making a small 3d purse and then we start working on our final piece. Not sure what to choose yet but think I may make a bag.
I bought a new book recently, just because I fancied it! Here it is A Rainbow of Stitches
It is full of embroidery templates which I am sure will come in very handy one day. Here is the first one I tried - a very simple 'puddy tat'
Off to join in Handmade Monday this evening, the first time in a good few weeks, so why not make yourself a cup of tea and take a bit of 'me' time to follow me over there to see what all the wonderful crafters have been up to.
Thank you for reading and I'll try and finish my pot for next week, hopefully I'll be back on track from now on.
