It does! We like that one the best too.
Just as felting should be.
Hi Elisabeth, yes it is lots of fun! The spinning is quite tricky but I just let it do it's own thing really and hope for the best! That's the great thing about feltmaking - nothing is wasted. All the little bits, and odds n ends, can be reused in new pieces and this creates lots of "happy accidents" too! Much love back Annie :)
Thank you for your kind feedback on our tutorials! We're in England but we keep in touch with felters around the world through "The Felting and Fiber Forum". It's free to join and you don't have to join to just look around it. http://feltandfiberstudio.proboards.com/
Hi Marilyn - thank you! Sorry, bit slow on publishing comments today! Glad you like them - I have lots of ideas for them! :)
Thank you for your kind feedback Sue!

Hi Ruth, that's great that you're feeling inspired! :) The croppers really do help to focus in on areas of interest and create new ways of looking at a piece of felt. Sometimes I start to worry that i spend too long "organising and sorting" instead of "doing" but actually the organising and sorting is part of the process in a way isn't it because you are reminded of various photos or supplies or books that you might have forgotten about. It helps the ideas to flow. Will be interested to hear what becomes of your old pieces of felt!

Hello Lesley - the muslin (aka scrim) in the post above was felted onto white merino wool before the stitching was done. There's no reason you couldn't hand embroider directly onto muslin - the result would be very interesting - and could be done with or without an embroidery hoop. If you want to back the muslin with something, you could try pinning lightweight sew-in stabliser to the muslin.
Thank you Karen! There is just so much to explore in feltmaking and textiles and every day results in more material doesn't it! I find it impossible to keep up with my imagination - since I've been making artwork I find I see things all around me now that years ago I wouldn't have noticed! Glad it's not just me with a "one day" pile :)

Thank you Marilyn. Glad you like them! :) Most often the ideas in my head or the sketches I do on paper do morph into something entirely different too when I make them in felt! Sometimes in a good way, sometimes not so good but it's always a learning opportunity! The trouble with sampling is that the more you do the more you find to do so I'll be back with more I'm sure!

Thank you Ruth - I wouldn't have be able to make the spiral without the tutorial and I'm glad that you'll find it handy too.

Thank you Tracey!
Thank you Marilyn (your quip gave us the giggles!)
Thank you Elizabeth - you sound as excited as we do!
Thank you Karen - we are pleased about it! We both agree that real books are great, but the pdfs are an economical and fast way for someone get the info they want.
That's lovely of you to say so Janice - thank you.
Thank you so much Teri!
Thanks Ruth, yes it is fun! It also gives me a starting point sometimes - for example when I found that old necklace with the rusty flower shapes, in my mind they just immediately fitted in to a little yellowy meadowy picture so that's what I made!
Thank you Marilyn! Yes it's good fun to have a play and just see what happens - the possibilities are endless aren't they! :)
