I'm still here.....busy felting

Oh my gosh! I just changed my profile photograph (thought it was about time you see what I look like), and noticed my last post was March the 24th, how could I let a month go past without blogging. In my defense there has been the two week easter holidays, and I never get much done when the kids are about, but they've been back at school for nearly a week now so no more excuses. I have been very productive this week, but still have a lot of projects unfinished. Inspired by these over on the other blog (who was I kidding when I thought I could write two), I have been experimenting with needle felting.

These two now grace our mantle piece, I think they'll make good props at craft fairs so I plan to make some more in spring colours.

This is my latest bit of felting, I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. I'm using the colours as inspiration for my latest range of felt goodies. DH took some photos of me modeling it at lunch time so I can get it listed on etsy. There was actually one of me smiling which doesn't make me cringe so I'm going to make it my avatar, don't look to closely though, as you can clearly see grey hairs, I must go and purchase some hair dye, does henna cover grey?

I'm also busy finishing everything off for my City and Guilds, we're having an exhibition on the 2nd of May. So when I've finished my outfit I'll have a go at modeling that as well, and I'll share the resist for the cape.

Hopefully it won't be another month before I'm back.
