At last! I've managed to get a few bits listed in my Etsy shop, camera problems notwithstanding (I love the opportunity to slip that word in!) Stupid thing won't talk to the computer any more for some reason, so have had to borrow Richard's fancy camera, which I'm not so familiar with. And, of course, the English winter light is far from favourable for fotography.
This is a very big one we've seen before, but those below are new ones
smaller and sweeter and much lighter, so that you don't list to starboard when you're wearing it on your shoulder
one with proper petals, about 4.5" across
another quite big one, but not so big to poke your eye out
a sophisticated charcoal merino, silvery-white silk and flax 'bar' shaped one
and a more colourful version, again with silk and flax fibres felted into the soft merino - this one's about 5" wide and some kind lady has already put it in her Etsy Treasury. How kind of her.
I've 'volunteered' to do a felting demonstration next week for our village Women's Institute. Now watching someone felting (or at least fulling) is like watching paint dry, so I'm going to have to work on a 45 minute stand-up comedy routine to keep the ladies entertained. I'm also worried (because I'm such a messy worker) that the front two rows are going to get soaking wet. I might have to drape them in decorators' dust sheets so they don't go home damp and sudsy. It'll be a bit like a trip on the Maid of the Mist under Niagara Falls.
Now I've got to find some inspiration for a photo for Emma's February Splash of Colour...
Hope you're all having a good week!
