FELTING THE WANDERING SPIRITS


When writing my blog the other day, I mentioned that I never have time to do some creating of my own. That got me to thinking that I needed a day off from the business to have some me time. Yesterday I managed to get out my felting machine and create. I didn't have anything in mind so just added bits of wool and fabric here and there.
I sat for about half an hour looking at the design to find something interesting in it. I must admit I often work like this and usually they turn out to be my best works.

So here you see the:-

Wandering spirits.

FELTISSIMO

I used some snippets of Victorian fabric in this work and some 1930's green chiffon with circles cut out and button hole stitched with gold metallic thread which was beautifully tarnished.

Very pretty! I think we all need a day off now and then to create.

Love the colours in your felt piece Sandie. I've been trying out needle-felting recently and I love it!
Thank you for getting in touch.
Linda :-)

Hi Linda,
Glad you like the new felting creation. I like needle-felting also and often use it on my flat pieces if there is something tiny I want to insert. My new embellishing machine is great for embellishing the felt.
thank you for commenting.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your very nice comment. Rag Rescue sounds like fabric heaven to me! I'm just going to take a look at your other blog.

Thank you for your comments Heather.
Linda, I forgot to mention that I too am a Nottinghamshire lass born and bred in Eastwood, now living in Morecambe and also a retired teacher. Small world.
