OK more on the Kimono.after the last post I was contacted by a lady who had seen the silk screen printing and wanted me to make her a small mat,so not one to refuse an order the kimono work went on the shelf whilst I concentrated on the mat.She wanted it to be just as I had planned my kimono piece ie design and colours so here we go floor art so all the planing had been done and I just used a heavier base–it has certainly tested my shoulder strength

Getting a heavier piece of felt to lay flat is hard work  and here is work in progress.
