Today has been a lovely, and very self indulgent, workshop day. Wendy and I headed off to Lincoln to do some needlefelting - a day of stabbing wool fibres into some form of shape!
We started with some red fibres and, after several hours, managed to produce this!
Many hours later - not to mention a lovely lunch(yes Sewingbuddy, I did not have the cake or the pudding!) - my toadstool was complete. The bee hangs over the flower in the meadow and is quite sweet.
Wendy opted for a smaller jar and made a lady bird on a leaf in her meadow. I also discovered an intriguing idea for a Christmas present - its useful to meet new people now isn't it?
Next door there was a group of people intriguingly using their sewing machines to draw and colour in some fabric pictures - something to try next time perhaps?
Tonight is my monthly stint at selling ice creams at the local theatre - so its a quick turn around!
