nuno felt

I haven't had a lot of success making nuno felt that looks good.  Felting and Fiber studio has an offer of a free ebook, I shall be reading it with great interest.  And dream of making felt as good as hers ;)

brooch or decoration for a bag?

I spent a happy couple of hours making these today.  A few scraps of fabric, some net and free machine embroidery. 

I made this bag before I was ill, but it needed finishing and I did this today too.

I enjoyed doing the embroidery on this too.  The bag was made from the back of one leg of an old pair of jeans.  The strip was made from tiny scraps of fabrc and the button was made from pine nut (I think) and  came from South America.

This is another project from before that I finished yesterday.  I am definately enjoying the fme-ing at the moment :)

Spring is round the corner

or so I hope.
Anyway you can stop feeling sorry for me as I am almost back to normal and managed to make a bag this weekend,  not so happy with the finishing so will make another asap. 

If the weather would just stop being so miserable.....

lost weeks

I have been sick.  Really sick, almost three weeks in bed with the virus from hell.  Now I am up and getting better but my legs keep wobbling. 

Not the easy way to lose weight btw.
