WHAT GIRL DOESN'T LIKE A RING!
Deirdre led our February Felt-in with a great session on using felting needles to create lovely felted rings. We shared lots of tips about the little holders for the needles and everyone was introduced to the basic skills of using these specialist barbed needles in making felt.
We had a great crowd on Saturday with five new faces which was great to see and as one girl said at the end of the session "it really made my Saturday".
Everyone enjoyed themselves if the smiles are anything to go by!
We always try and encourage each other to share our work and everyone was very keen to see the results of our recent wall hanging workshop. Helen had liked her sample piece so much that she framed it and I must say I don't blame her!
She also shared her larger piece which she is still working on. It's a lovely example of planning your work and using loads of different techniques to get the effects you want.
And talking of special effects I couldn't resist taking a SNAP of Sarah's name badge! Isn't it great?
It was lovely to meet some new faces to Feltmakers North and to share our work. These little animals of Cate's were well behaved and clearly well house trained!
Carol and Bill are used to working with wool and she shared these colourful pieces with us. We hear on the grapevine that Carol accepted Bill's ring and did agree to marry him again!
Thanks to Deirdre everyone had good fun and there were no stabbings for a change!
Thought I'd finish with this lovely photo of Elaine modelling her cobweb felted scarf which she had fashioned after our January Felt-in. See you all soon.
