Play Days :)

I'm later than I'd planned with this post.. where does the time go?!  I wanted to share a few photos from Heather's visit.. I was embarrassingly forgetful of my camera, but I have a feeling Heather snapped some good ones which I'm really looking forward to seeing :)

I can't quite believe after 5 years of being blog friends we finally got together! We had 3 play days.. which absolutely flew by!  The days where a whirlwind of felting and chatting, eating cakes and lunching (mostly on leftovers from the night before :)  The evenings were great with lots of fun and laughter for the whole family. 

Now nearly 2 weeks later it seems surreal that Heather was actually HERE.

Felting tiny little amulet bags
I didn't take any more felting action shots at all I'm afraid..  Heather showed me how to do a tiny bag and 2 funky scarves made with prefelt..

Heathers is the lovely colourful bottom one :)
Mine has holes

We worked on this crazy boa together on the last morning..
it's really effective - I love it
This was my tiny bag..
the blue bits were a shoal of blue prefelt fish but they went blurry as I felted
And we both made a pair of 'my-style' boots.. Though mine weren't finished we did manage to finish and dry Heather's so they could go home with her. I'm not saying anything else about them except that they are fabulous and very 'Heather-ish' :)

 All the makes I was left with when Heather went home..

I love the way the 2 top scarves wind across the table :)
I've a couple of ideas for other things to do using this technique..

The end of a lovely visit..
So photogenic..
Having a quiet lunch together.. fresh home made carrot and coriander soup (my favourite).. before heading to the airport.  Now I'm looking forward to the next time :)

What an amazing visit we had, Deborah!!
I cannot thank you (and your warm and lovely family) enough for the laughter and joy we shared.
You all made me feel like an honorary family member!
Miss you!! Hxx
