Thank you Ruth. Annie once joked, whilst I was happily and busily stitching beads on some felt, that I would know when to stop because I wouldn't be able to fit any more on!

That's not a bad idea Marilyn! But I've got him on the wall by my laptop and he seems happy enough there.

Thank you Teri. Knowing when to stop can be tricky though can't it.

Thank you Karen - somehow the basic black stitching didn't seem enough until I'd tried to add more then realised that it looked better in its simple form!

Thank you Marilyn - we both find it hard to stray too far from seaside/ice-cream colours!

Thank you for the feedback Nikki - Annie is happy that people are finding her colour choices for her pineapple pleasing.

Thank you Ruth - we've obviously been inspired by the challenges on 'The Felting and Fiber Forum'!

Thank you Teri. The flat pineapple looked great on Dad's round wooden table but it didn't photograph too well in his room hence the boring shot of it on a white table in my craft room. I like Annie's brave use of colour on her pineapple too and I'm a tad jealous of her creative imagination!

Thank you Patricia - they do make lovely, unique gifts.
Thank you for your kind feedback Ursula - we hope you enjoy your felting.
Glad you like our tips Jane! Thanks for the feedback.
You're very welcome. You comment was at the bottom of our old tutorial - have you seen the new one?
Thank you Robin - the extra space does allow the bright undercolour to show. In the second one, the undercolour is red but you'd never know it.
Thank you Ruth. The camera just doesn't see what your eye can see does it? I hope the angled shot gives a rough idea though.

Hello Leslie - there is no roving put on top of the small pieces. The pieces were placed on top of 4 layers of loose merino fibres then when it was all felted together, the white fibres 'gripped' the cut edges of the pieces. Try making a small sample to see how it works.

Thanks Zed. When you look at it, your eyes can see the texture but the camera does tend to flatten it when you take a straight on shot - pity.

Thank you Karen. Yes, the texture is wonderful - it's a shame that it doesn't show in face-on photo as it does in 'real life'.

Thank you Marilyn. I'm so easily distracted too - there are so many projects that keep popping into my head but so little time!

Thank you Merryl. Some felters use old net curtains - we use tutu net as we find it easiest.
Thank you for your lovely feedback Silvi!
