Hello my friends. Happy New Year!
I hope it's a good one for all of you.
I thought I'd start 2014 with little round up of last years creativity. A little bit of closure as they say! So without further-a-do and in no particular order lets enjoy a little visual reminder.
I tried a bit of hand dyeing last year, not my most favourite of pastimes but needs must and all that. There was also some bunny making, some felted Dales scenes and a bit of make do and mend!
I embroidered little felt gardens onto greetings cards, created my first kits, made my Mum a needle case and I experimented with 3D felting.
I taught a couple of felting workshops, stitched fabric flower brooches and felted a field mouse! And I could never forget making nearly 100 felt flower brooches!
As usual plenty of handbags were created, some commissions, some not but all unique and often a little quirky.
I sold lots of printed greeting cards. More bags and a memory journal commission for a lovely young ladies 21st birthday.
A short foray into ribbon embroidered felt brooches, more bags and a felted Mr Fox. Don't forget one very cute Jack Russell felt.
More brooches, a hand knitted lacy shawl (which I am wearing at this very moment) a patchwork quilt commission and my first set of prints from my felt paintings. (must update my Etsy shop!)
Another little home made gift for Mum, a scissor keep. My crochet Christmas tree, one feltd wall hanging and an experience I could never forget...My stand at Yarndale 2013!
Well, I enjoyed that but I'm glad it's over and now we can get on with 2014.
Onward and upward I say.
I hope you'll all join me now and again so see what the new year brings. After all... it wouldn't be the same without you ;)
love Fi x
