    A Holiday Card and a Look Back and Ahead

    I have been to busy lately to do any felting. The other problem is my felting table gets turned into gift wrapping central. I Got a lovely card from my exchange partner in our card exchange. I got a few extra goodies with my card too.

    Nuno Felt Scarf Class Dec 2017

    Felt Vessel Class

    Posted on December 2, 2017 by shepherdessann I taught an enthusiastic group of ladies how to make felted vessels last Sunday. They were a great group and without Carleen’s reminders to take pictures I would have nothing to show you today.           Three ladies chose to make pots that were a different colour inside.  and two made theirs a solid colour. Then of course there was the wetting, rubbing and rolling and shapping     Blowing up a balloon inside  helps get a nice shape. In the back ground you can see Carlene rolling on a car mat. For some reason I did not get a picture…
