Fleece time

I can't believe how quickly this year is going by and already we are at the sheep shearing season.
Last year I had my first go at cleaning some fleeces. It was hard work but very rewarding. I did 7 last year, given to me by a good friend.
A few weeks ago  I asked her if I could have them this year, she asked how many I wanted, when I said all of them, she replied do you know I have 60 now! 
So me who never says no, spent last Monday from 10am til 6pm sorting through 60 beautiful fleeces


Jacobs, lonks, zwarble, woodland, texal and some mixed. My back was killing me but my hands were lovely and soft from the lanolin. Luckily there were lambs and a puppy to cuddle between the fleece sorting. 



Now what to do with it all??

Easter bunnies workshop

And what an amazing day it was. The sun was shining we had hot cross buns and tea and coffee flowing.
Such a lovely group of ladies. We felted, chatted and laughed all day. 


One lady sent me this one after she had worked on him a little more. Isn't he just so cute! 


I'm so pleased with how this workshop went.

Time flies

How fast is this year going? Or is it just me? 
I have been busier than I ever thought I could dream of. I can't believe that four and a half years ago I had never heard of needle felting and now look how it's taken over my life. 
I've started doing workshops for two local craft shops as well as my own and I've been busy making new workshop ideas too! 
And...... And...... And...... I have finally had my first sale on my Etsy shop! Whoop whoop! 
As it's coming up to Easter shortly, I decided to try and master bunnies for a workshop. 
What do you think? 


I have a workshop booked for the 25th March. It should be fun!

Christmas workshops


Its not too far off that time of year and never have I had  such fun in the run up to it, as I have doing the christmas workshops. Not only have I had fun but I've some wonderful people and showed them the joys of needlefelting.






Watching the creations come to life is so exciting, especially when it's someone who isn't particularly crafty and they can't believe they have made something so good.
Didn't they all do well!

Instagram

I've always scoured the internet looking for inspiration for needle felting projects, usually pinterst.
But recently I joined Instagram, I love the fact that like Pinterest, it's so visual.
I came across a lovely instrammer called joyful gnomes.
They had some wonderful gnomes and one inparticular caught my eye.


I thought she would be lovely to felt, so I asked joyful gnomes if they minded if I felted her, they said they would be honoured.
A few weeks later I finished her. 







I posted her on instagram and joyful gnomes was so delighted they posted this picture.


I'm looking for more inspiration now!
