Among my lovely Christmas presents was this felting kit. I have never tried this way of felting before so approached it with trepidation. My poor hare looks very much the worse for wear and there are all sorts of things wrong with him, but I found making him quite a therapeutic process. It would have been nice to have some spare fleece to practice on first, and although the printed instructions were very clear, the photos of each stage of working were so small - only about an inch square - it was difficult to pick up on any detail.
Now, you aren't laughing, are you?!!
Our impatient cherry tree is already putting out little clumps of blossom, as is the forsythia. Apologies for the poor photo but I couldn't walk on the lawn for a better shot as it is waterlogged.
I have been very naughty and enjoyed a bit of online shopping for craft materials. If you remember me saying that I am not buying anything else until I have used what I already have - just forget it! I'll show you the goodies when they arrive.
Until then, keep dry, and warm, and well.
