Don't you just want to dive in! All that scrummy, felty, woolly goodness! Look at the sheen on that brown merino wool, delicious!
This my lovely friends is a felt workshop that I taught at the Chapel Gallery a couple of weeks ago.
My ladies brought along an old towel each, I provided the woolly stuff and Anne who owns the gallery provided much needed refreshments and her photographic skills (if it wasn't for Anne snapping away, I'd having nothing to show you today)
Everyone was keen to get creating.
And after a couple of hours and much soapy rolling...
Half a dozen little Wensleydale Landscapes left the building, still a bit damp and their owners a little rosy cheeked but every one had their very own felt landscape to finish with embroidery at home.
This one belongs to the lovely Janet, look at tiny hand stitched flowers in the foreground... beautiful. Thank you to all who attended and Anne for the inspirational surroundings, a super afternoon was had by all, especially me.

And here is another landscape. This is a very warm and sunny street in Australia. Yes you guessed! This is where Gilbert the Gnome has gone to live. Thank you Hilary for sending the photo it's so nice to see where my cheeky chap landed.
Next time I'll be sharing a bit of New Years knitting.
Thank you all for the Gilbert love on my last post and Annie, I cut Gilbert from the felt fabric first and then stitch the felt into a bag, snip, snip, no room for mistakes! No pressure then! lol.
