Here's another batch of flowers, I'd got a bit bored with the flowers so I made these a little different by incorporating some leather scraps I bought at the recent Fashion and Embroidery Show at Harrogate. These are destined for a variety places, some will be on the International Felt Makers stand at the Knitting and Stitching Show, some will be for sale at the Festive Fizz at my kids school, one is in my Esty shop, another in my Folksy shop and the last one is in my new shop at MyEhive. MyEhive is a new selling site based in the UK, it only opened at the beginning of October, and if you're quick to sign up and get to be one of the first 100 you'll get free membership for life. It works abit like Big Cartel, were you pay a monthly subscription rather than listing and commission fees. Etsy has been quite quiet recently so I thought it was worth trying out some new places.

Pretty Pink Flowers

The other day I found a gorgeous silk scarf in our local charity shop, I bought it, rushed home and nuno felted it straight away. It came out even better than I'd hoped, although the photographs don't do it justice. Have I mentioned before that cerise pink is one of my favourite colours? I was tempted to keep it for myself, but I really have too many scarves (I have a tendency to keep ones I've made), so I've put it in the etsy shop. I'm hoping to get into town this week and tour the charity shops to see if I can get my hands on any more scarves.

I taught a felt a bag workshop at the weekend, and gave the students the option to make a monster bag if they wanted to, here's one made by Melody, isn't he fantastic, I love the stunned look on his face.
