eggs-tra special crafty folk.

i went to kettering last saturday to show a fab group how to hand felt. they are a really welcoming bunch of people who are keen on all sorts of crafts and i thoroughly enjoyed my day. I made a piece of yellow/orange felt as part of the demo and when got home was inspired to make this for a little 'yolk'.

impatient me.

i wish my house was sold as i am fed up of tidying and cleaning and pretending we are a neat and organised family. i wish it was spring so i could plant things and stop having to wear woollen items. i wish it was already half term so i didnt have to make packed lunches.

i realise i am wishing my life away but i just wish everything would get on with it and hurry along a little. to get rid of my grump i did a little flat felt out of alpaca and silk and made it into a simple necklace. hope it cheers you too xxx

i am a housewife and i work hard slogging through my family life, however i had forgotten what busy was. In the space of 3 weeks i have painted 5 rooms and made 4 pairs of curtains. Hardest of all though was the mammoth operation which was tidying, properly ! all of which should be evident as it's coming soon to rightmove. My family is on the move, exciting times for us and a touch nervy. i had forgotten what it was like to work to deadlines and have people relying on you having completed the work you promised you would. it's been great and i have a real sense of acheivement that i have pulled it off. In the meantime i have also been felting and made this around the 1st or second week in jan. it is a piece of flat felt with trapped fibres and then embellished with gilding flakes and beads.
