Really must try harder. Not being a good team mate if I don`t make the effort. It is nice to see each days new listings even if it is tempting.
Yesterday I had a pretty good day all in all. I spent over 5 hours needle felting a picture for a needle case and a smaller pincushion size picture. They do take a long time as I build them up in layers and like each layer to be thoroughly needled to the felt before moving on to the next. I love to see the picture emerging from the layers of merino wool in all the different shades. When I do the sky I use a variety of colours to get a better effect. This one was an underwater one with beautiful blues. green seaweed and brightly coloured fish.
I have to confess that the smaller picture didn`t get finished entirely as my daughter turned up with the youngest two grandchildren and a friend of the 6 year old. It was a very welcome distraction by that time I have to admit. I hadn`t realised how long I had been concentrating for, hunched over my work. I also realised at that point, how chilly it had become.
It was really lovely to see their bright, happy little faces.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Hunched over and working away
it took up most of my day.
Building a picture, bit by bit
concentrating hard as I sit
at the table surrounded by gear
hubby`s face was a picture, oh dear.
Mountains of colour all around
even some fallen to the ground.
Quite a bit stuck to my sleeve
hubby seemed in a hurry to leave.
Oblivious to all, my tea went cold
by the time I remembered it was old.
But the picture was quite a sight
with lot`s of colour and light.
So soft the pure merino wool
that covers thickly till it is full.
Then still more on top of that
when done, the back is a furry mat.
My shoulders ached when I was done
but all in all it was a day of fun!!
