I have always been fascinated by the art of felting and wanted to have a go at it myself. Some lovely friends listened and sent me kit(s) for Christmas along with all the necessary so I could have a shot at it.
So, armed with everything required plus BeAnne, I drove over to a friend who knows all about this sort of thing. She is very arty and crafty. I am not. All geared up, my friend got me started. I learn much better seeing things being done in real life, rather than through films, books or lectures. I had my own private tutor.
BeAnne was with me too as her New Year’s resolution is to widen her horizens and to travel more. She settled quickly, which meant I didn’t have to worry about her.
I did attempt to read the instructions that came with the equipment. They were excellent and informative, if strange.
And off I went. I was trying to make a whale from the Whale Kit.
I quickly gave up on the whale idea and started making some legs instead.
Yup, I drew blood. It was inevitable.
Can you guess what I wanted to make, or who?
I made sure I went outside regularly to stretch my legs and my back as I am still suffering.
And this is my finished creation.
I must admit I am feeling well chuffed with myself. I think I have found what I want to make in my studio. I really enjoyed myself. I had an excellent teacher and learned what to do and what not to do.
The future is a large flock.
