OK, so I promised a felty post this time :) I have been felting nearly every day working out a Spring / Summer range for my Etsy shop..
|Veeery similar to the original, but the shape is just how I wanted it now.|
|Apologies for the close ups of me bum - its the only way to show how they sit (oh for a dressmakers dummy!)|
|Loads of sari silk fibre, and sari ribbons felted in to this one. I love the colourfull sari silks against the vibrant lilac & pink merino|
|A crashing wave with throwsters waste silk surf.|
Gary challenged me to felt a wave... so I felted it onto a hip bag.The cord belt has a BFL tuft at the end & mohair locks plus lots of silks felted in... I formed a loop section in the cord and added 3 sea worn limpet shells (from last summers holiday :) as I was felting it. Just need to find time for listing thing now lol.
I've felted a lovely summery nuno wrap but havent any photos yet. I really do need to get a dressmakers dummy to display things nicely! I'm planning to have a go at making my own, they are just too expensive for me to buy one. Hopefully should be doing that over the next week or two so watch this space :)
What else has been going on? Well Gary worked away for a couple of days... I thought I'd get lots done while he was away (as I could carry on working after the kids went to bed guilt free) didnt seem to happen though. I did carry on working late, but didnt seem to get much more done than I would normally.
We gained a new fishy friend - Rachael has named him Bob. He's a VERY lucky little fish. Gary found him in an empty house he was inspecting, the people had moved out at the begining of December and left him behind. Amazing that he is alive and healthy after 2 months without food! (Of course for all we know he may of had a couple of buddies to begin with.. he was all on his own when found. He settled straight into our tank, is really playful with the other fish and growing fast now that he is eating.
OK, time to go cook :)
