Thank you Marilyn - he is a fancy fella to be sure!
Thank you Wendy! They were all great fun to work on. Just need to make sure I finish the leaves picture now and not get too distracted! :)
Hi Elisabeth! Thank you! I really had fun with all of the projects. Hopefully will find some time to do some more soon! I have added propane torch and pillar drill to my Christmas list! :) x
Hi Marilyn, thank you! We're pleased you like all of the projects - we have both been rather busy with it all! Fingers crossed that the leaves turn out well - the image I have in my head at the start is quite often not what happens in the end as I get sidetracked with new ideas! :)
Hi Ruth, thanks! I hope they turn out as good as they look in my head! :) The other projects have been fun too - I like to try a bit of everything and the metalwork was certainly a new and different challenge. It does all feed back though cos I'm now thinking felty sunflowers at some point! :)
Hi Ruth, printing is such fun isn't it! It's a surprise every time! Glad it's not just me who has so many notes and a whirlwind of ideas. I find the cataloguing of ideas quite tricky as they take many forms, and yes sometimes I do wonder what on earth a scribble or note meant! I reckon it's better to have too many overflowing notebooks with a gazillion years worth of ideas than lots of white empty pages, so keep up the good work! :)
Hi Wendy, thank you! I can't keep up with myself sometimes! :) xx
Thanks Karen :) The pipe insulation works so well for stamping circles. Then a cardboard tube and other random circular things got involved. Probably like a lot of people who make things, I find I've got to the point where I start to see an alternative use for so many objects. Anything can become something to have a play with, stamp or draw with or shape felt around! :)
Hello Vanja The finished size of the pod is 12.5 cm at its widest x 7 cm tall (approx 5" wide x 3" tall). If you want to make a larger pod, increase the size of the circle. However, if the pod becomes the size of a cat cave you will need extra layers of wool i.e. the larger the resist, the thicker the wool needs to be for strength. We've updated the tutorial - we think you saw the old one - so here's the link to our latest version of the tutorial. http://rosiepink.typepad.co.uk/rosiepink/tutorial-how-to-make-a-wet-felted-pod.html
Thank you Marilyn! I often lack focus but I do have a lot of fun with it all. And I do love a good list. My creative list is like the house jobs list - for every 1 that gets crossed off 5 more appear! :)
I like your thinking Tracey!

Thank you Tracey. You are spot on. I do love the planning! Sometimes I mull an idea over for weeks. And as for the colourful cockatoos, I think that's called 'artistic license'... or is it madness?

Thank you Karen - it's a fun way of using nuno felt!

Thank you Marilyn - the colour of the wool fibres really does make a difference to the nuno felt.

Thank you Ruth - I think this technique could be explored a lot more.

Thank you Marilyn. When I had a blank sheet of paper and a pencil I had no idea what was going to happen. After much doodling and playing with shapes it gradually took shape.
