Thank you Teri. It's great having the lighter evenings now that we have summer-time isn't it?

Thank you Bekki. The wire really finishes the look - especially when it shines in direct natural light.

Thank you Ruth - I'm glad the fish ended up as a sculpture too.

Thank you Karen - the sculpture was mainly thanks to serendipity. I love 'playing' to see what happens - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Thank you Marilyn - I really liked the wall panel too but I couldn't have both!

Hello! Thank you, glad you like them :) The sailboats picture is machine embroidery on handmade felt. The colouring is just merino fibres & dyed scrim (an open weave fabric) used in the feltmaking process. I laid a base of white fibres then added some coloured fibres and the little pieces of fabric. Then cut it into squares to make the pictures. I haven't use Inktense pencils before so I don't know how they would come out - all I can suggest is to have a go and see what happens! I have used various other inks and acrylic paints to add colour quite successfully on other handmade felt projects. Have fun with it!

Thank you for the challenges Ruth - I love to take part in them. Ha Ha, can you imagine it? Ikea here I come ... kerching!
Thank you Rosemary for your kind feedback.
Thank you Bekki. Yes, the white yarn is lovely - I've had a golf-ball sized ball of it for years and I can't remember where I got it from. Hmmmm - I wonder if I cleared the shelf in Ikea and marketed them as felting tools.........
Thank you Karen! The challenge was harder than I thought but well worth it.
Thank you Marilyn - it was a rocky journey but now it's finished I'm pleased with it and I do like the bright colours. I agree it is very cheerful.
Hi Ruth, thank you. I seem to spend a lot of time trying to organise my head so I thought it would be nice to make that a project which is creative in itself. I'm thinking nuno cover, big stitched in pages then detachable bits n bobs that I can pull out and pin on the wall if I want to, rather than having everything screaming at me all at once! :) Of course it may not work out like that at all, but it will be a nice adventure anyway! The spinning is fun and is a great way to use up bits and pieces, and you can't go wrong with a pom pom or two hanging about the place! I love them!
