GMT 7.30am Wednesday 7th May.
I was not expecting to enjoy needlefelting greatly when I bought a small starter kit and instruction leaflet just a few weeks ago - nor thinking it was really suitable for the small area of an ATC.
I was wrong - I really love the vibrant colours of the fibres and the feel of the felt as it builds up with quick sharp stabs of the needle.
It's quite therapeutic and luckily I haven't stabbed myself so far - I probably will one day and so will add a bit more colour to the felt.
The ATCs seem to be popular to trade, so I'm happy.
Yesterday I ordered a book about fabric fusing with a soldering iron - something else I know nothing about yet - it sounds a bit hazardous!
Well it's a lovely day, lots of blossom in the gardens I see from
here so I may have to take a few more photos before breakfast.
What a contrast to the grey skies and snowy pics taken recently.
I'm struggling with a deep personal sadness about a very dear friend, but there are still good things to look to and to share.
