Just a quick post this morning, I'm supposed to be working on a commission. Here are some of the photo's from the felt jewellery workshop. It went well and the students made some lovely felted flowers. It's the first jewellery one I have run, and I think I might change it slightly, the cuffs weren't popular, (I guess they're a love or loath thing).

Oh, and here are some coasters I made myself yesterday, what do you think? I'll try and post again tomorrow with my hoard from the knitting and stitching show. Oh and Danca has tagged me (thank you), so I'll try and get that done this week as well.

Hello, I am still here!! It's such a long time since I last posted, and I have so much to share, but I think I'll do it gradually over the next few days. Last week was the felted jewellery workshop so I have some photographs of the students work to show you. Then I've been very busy making lots of felted things for the festive fizz shopping night at my daughter's school. It was a good night but like raspberry, I found the bags didn't do so well but the felted flower brooches went like hotcakes! And then of course, this weekend I have been at the Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate. I was there on Saturday shopping and then I was back today helping on the International Feltmakers Association stand. Needless to say I made quite a few purchases which I'll post up later. Now I'm full of ideas and can't wait to get felting once the kids have gone to bed. Here are some pictures of scarves I made for the shopping night, I didn't sell any, so they're going in the Etsy shop. (The pictures aren't great, as we haven't been having a great deal of good weather here recently and the light has been appalling).

Busy, busy, busy!

This will be another short post as I am about to embark on my second night of felt scarf making. I have managed to get a stall at a festive fizz shopping night at my daugther's school, it's on the 22nd, so not much time left!! Here's a picture of some WIP.

I have also made a set of jewellery to use in my workshop next week. The photos aren't very good as I was rushing!

The nightmare about being so busy is I have well over 100 unread posts in google reader!

The plus point is the brooch sold really quickly :) unfortunately it is no longer on the front page :(

Oh my, just came down form putting the kids to bed and saw my latest flower brooch on the front page of Etsy, very excited!! Also, the funky felter has written an excellent article about felting for the storque on etsy, you have to go read it, there are some very talented felters out there on Etsy.

I've been a bit slack at posting at the moment. Since my wool tops made front page I've been selling a lot through Etsy and seem to be spending a lot of time packing wool to post out across the globe :)

I have an interview tomorrow morning, to teach a felt making night class at Ripon College, so I've got to go and update my CV, which I don't seem to have touched since 2003!!
