It was a wet and chilly February morning but 23 intrepid ladies braved the weather to learn about making inclusions in felt. But first we had our customary show and tell.
Fiona Harvey started us off with her beautiful beads, made under the tutelage of Dorothy Dinsmore at our last felt in! Elaine showed us three lovely nuno felted scarves that she had made.
Ann Fairly showed off her lovely needle felted Hare and a wet felted bag.
Tina made a beautiful needlefelted broach of a fox terrier buy sadly we didn't get a photo of it!
The session was led by the erudite Fiona Harvey, who demonstrated how incorporate inclusions into our felt, She showed us how to lay out our silk add a cut out piece of felt , which were then covered with wool.
Some of Fiona's samples
 Everyone completed a sample and each one was very different. Mary Larkin made a lovely rabbit and Dympna added sailboats on her sample.

 All the samples were colourful, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. It will be interesting to see if this technique appears in any work at our next show and tell.
Some of the samples at the end of the session!

I would like to thank Jane Fox for writing this piece for the blog and taking the photos!

Just beofe I go I found this picture on facebook to inspire you all! How about this for Inclusions!
The sheep photography competition is still on if any of you would like to send in more photos it would be great, as they will feature in future blog posts!
I jumped out of the car again this week to photograph these fellows, sadly they thought I was going to feed them and came running up to me! So I will have to take them down some carrots?!
Keep felting and we look forward to seeing you at the next Felt in, Dorothy Dinsmore is back and its a surprise Felt in,...... all will be revealed!!
