Fun-filled Felting Day…

I had my camera ready to take photos throughout the day but I must have been over-excited, having far too much fun & completely forgot... Thankfully, the lovely Bev, had her wits about her & managed to take a few snaps... so, I've put together this little collage of the day.

This particular felting day had been planned last year, but one thing or another kept getting in the way… So, it’s been a long time coming but we finally settled on a date. On Monday morning, 5 enthusiastic ladies turned up at our usual crocheting corner (my back yarn) to find it transformed into a felting playground. The weather was perfect & we were all itching to get started…

The planned program was to be a busy one – make a small jewellery pouch, some flowers, beads & a felted rock – it’s quite an ask when you’ve never felted before but everyone lathered up, sloshed about & massaged their way to successfully produce their felted treasures. Of course, there were also some felting mishaps that needed some creative adjustments (a good sense of humour is always a requirement when undertaking these new adventures & we had that in spades), all in all,  it was a fabulous, fun day where we all learnt a lot… I certainly did…. Thank you, ladies…. It was a wonderful way to start the week…
