Thank you Jackie. Have you thought about taking some photos of your tree with its blossom and bees so that you have a reference when you need inspiration for a felt picture? I hope you have fun with your felting:)
Thank you Elizabeth! Yes, I'll hang it on my wall and come back to it with fresh eyes. I am lucky to have a garden - the flowers are a great inspiration:)
Thank you Karen! We hope you have fun experimenting.
Thank you! It's acrylic paint. I use it because it doesn't soak into the felt too much and in theory should be permanent. Sometimes you need 2 coats depending on the effect you want to achieve and the depth of colour. I've only ever tried it on artwork though - not sure how it would wear on clothing or household items. Glad you like it!
Thank you Ruth! When I was at Kew Gardens recently the Bee Lady said not to feel guilty about weeds and having the meadow effect in your garden - the bees love it! So we're not lazy gardeners, we're doing it for the bees.... :)
Thank you Marilyn! I love the simplicity of the bees - dare I admit I took inspiration from a picture my niece had drawn for her homework a few years ago with little bees on it... Kids really can capture the simple lines of things can't they!
Thank you! Yes it is acrylic paint - I think it's fun to add another element to the felt sometimes to see what happens :)
Thank you Lilly!
Thank you Teri - he does keep all my handmade cards!
Thank you Sharon :)
The whisky will soon be gone and forgotten but I know he keeps the cards I make for him.
Also very patient!
Thank you Tricia!

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!
