OOooo this week has been a treat! First week back to felting after 3 weeks off while the family were at home... much as I LOVE family time, its always nice to get the fibre back out :) I have devoted the week to FUN, things that I have been planning to do but havent had time & pressies that I wanted to make. I cant share all of my makes with you at the moment... they may get spotted and spoil a suprise. But heres what I can show..
I started experimenting with summer headgear, but havent got a photo of this yet. I decided to nunofelt a head kerchief... The style is inspired the scarf-like head wrap (called a head-rail) that I wear at work (I dress up as a Tudor servant and work with schools in a local museum for anybody new who will probably be thinking "WHAT?!" at this point). As I dont have pics yet I shall talk more about it when I do...
We had a wonderful day out yesterday to celebrate. Matthew wanted to go to our local zoo, where we spent many happy days when the children were younger. The weather was pretty good; dry & sunny though very windy. The highlight of the day was in one of the 'walk through' enclosures, when one of the black & white ruffed lemurs held Matthews hand! It was on the handrail next to us and just reached out and held on very gently with a hand & foot - stayed there for a good 5 minutes. Matthew said the lemurs hands were cold so maybe he was warming them up - it was soooo sweet! Another funny bit was when we came across a flock of cameroon sheep in pets corner. OMG they were funny... there were 7 or 8 of them in there, most were saying "MAAaaaaaaaaa" but one missed his "M" every time just saying "AAAAaaaaa" I love hearing sheep anyway - always think they are funny... but these they had very funny voices, some were really deep, and they were SO loud. There were 2 lamas in with them and they made a very tiny little noise, such a contrast to the sheep who were hardly as tall as the llamas knees. My hubby recorded them on his mobile, now every time I phone he gets a very loud mad MAAAaaaa-ing :) It truly was the most hilarious noise I have ever heard. All the photos were taken on our phones, so I cant post them unfortunately.
And the rest of this weeks makes are secret... but will be revealed in time.
