After a good show and tell Gail started off the session, explaining two different ways to incorporate Silk paper in to felt. She had made a few more squares for our friendship blanket, which was great! Despite it being a cold and very busy Saturday the turn out was amazing and it brill to see everyone!
Then I proceeded to demonstrate how to make a small purse adding some silk paper. The festive atmosphere was enhanced, by Gail singing the odd line of a Christmas song at random moments! X factor watch out!!
Mandy decided to make her purse to coordinate with what she was wearing.
A few of the beautiful finished purses.
After all this hard work we were ready for a light Christmas lunch that the Feltmakers North committee had organised, and it was very tasty!
I don't know about you but this year has flown by (may be a sign of getting old?) So that brings Feltmakers North activities for 2014 to an end. However we have a very exciting programme for 2015, including a residential week end in hat making, and another exciting workshop news of which will be released in January so keep checking the blog under the Felt in workshop section! We are also having a brilliant workshop after our felt in, in February and it is suitable for all beginners or those of you who want to refresh your techniques, application forms are available from email firstname.lastname@example.org
I would thoroughly recommend this workshop its called "Start from the Start"
Well all that remains for me to say is Happy Christmas and New Year, and we are looking forward to seeing you all in January 2015. Of course I couldn't go without attaching this little photo, how cute is this lamb?
