morning glory

The weather has been just glorious this week. Great felting weather. I was able to do some rolling outside and dry felt pieces flat on the grass. Thought you would like to see my latest flower creation - a pink Morning Glory. I've just discovered that felt is a lovely medium to use for machine embroidery and I think adds to the felted flower.
Enjoy the weekend - even though it's to be a bit colder here in the UK.
Bye, Ali

i'd rather be

I've been putting off the ironing for quite a wee while. Now all is left is sorting out the socks. Where do all the odd socks go?......I must have at least a dozen odd socks languishing at the bottom of the laundry basket.
I'd rather be knitting / sewing / felting well absolutely anything other than housework.
On a craftier note I have finished my felted Stargazer Lily. one of the flower samples for the latest City and Guild piece. Ive included a few photos....

Bye Ali.
