This has lifted my spirits in this gloomy spring/summer the hellebore arriving with her glorious skirts .Going to use these colours as inspiration and I am going to build on some work which I just left hanging a couple of years ago and took no further, so I will post the whole design journey which was exciting at the time and I can see it moving forward now.I will podcast this.
Because I had to I found myself in my store shed looking through fibres and remembering cherished purchase which still await using.There is a glorious Norwegian carded batt which is this lovely hellebore pinky/green colour hmmm here I go mind buzzing now and oh I do so hate having to part with my spoils.
Happy felting week to you all —sorry to say I am not running classes through this summer at all there will be just the events booked at other venues but no extra at home.After my sons wedding in a fortnight I am going to have a rest and recharge my batteries and get down to some writing and book planning .In July i am teaching on the cruise and I am in Copenhagen in June as well for a few days –any Danish readers who want to meet up please email me it would be great fun.

Beautiful bag for a wedding! I love these colors and the pink is such a nice contrast to the lovely shade of green. Great inspiration (I was not familiar with Helleborus)…I learn something new from you once again! That and the fact (I believe it to be fact anyway) that if I leave my work laid out overnight, wet, that when I awake in the morning, the felt-making fairy will arrive and see to it that it’s practically all put together by morning:-) Have a great time at the wedding. I know that you will.
P.S. Not that I can afford it, but what cruise are you teaching on? Sounds like a great combination…Cruising, eating, felting, swimming, eating some more and felting some more….
Dawn thank you so much glad you like it –Hellebore is a beautiful range of plants with many fabulous varieties one flowers all winter with pale green bracts/flowers on –lovely.I am teaching on craftcruises to Scandinavia and Russia there is a link on my knitting blog http://.chrissieday.wordpress.com but here is the page
it is my first cruise experience and teaching —maybe felting next time but I am very excited and will blog every day about the trip. just heard we have heavy snow forecast here so with a railstrike the day b4 the wedding and an air strike it is looking ‘good’.Think I will need a shawl for the wedding .do an experiment with the leaving after wetting and see if it takes less time for you too.I am sure there felting fairies that get to work when you leave it . Take care Chrissie
