Today, the weather has mainly been wet - again. This pic of the rowan tree was taken this morning.
Since I have been feeling decidedly uninspired and uncreative, I thought I should force myself to do something. Believe it or not, I had never actually got around to making felt, so I gave it a go. It turned out not too badly. My first bit was a little thin in areas, I probably could have done with working it a bit more. My second piece was larger and too thick in bits! I need more practice obviously. I'm just following the instructions I got from a piece of paper, so if anyone has any words of wisdom on the subject, feel free!
This is the first piece before felting.
Both pieces after felting.
And the back of the larger piece - which was a different colour from the front.
All in all, I'm fairly pleased to have achieved something today and it does seem to have stirred the creative juices a little. I have decided I really need to keep a notebook of ideas, so that when inspiration strikes, I can make notes and sketches etc to refer back to. Otherwise, I just forget!
Oh, and when I showed my other half the felt, he (carefully!) said it was nice, but 'what do you actually do with it?'. He has a lot to learn...
