Thank you Jan - glad you like it!
Thank you for your lovely feedback Ann!
Hi Ellie, thank you for your lovely feedback :) I spend a fair bit of my creative time just playing and experimenting to see what works for me and what doesn't, and seeing what ideas evolve. There is a lot of "what if I did this" and "what if I tried that" and just enjoying the process of creating, more than worrying about finishing lots of pieces. Good luck with your journey into mixed media, hope you have lots of fun with it! Annie
Hi Marilyn, thank you! Glad you like the stitching. The coastal works are really interesting to do, I keep picking it up and putting it down, and enjoy letting the process happen. There are so many ways to interpret the wonderful colours and views it's hard to choose what to finally do, from the composition to the actual feltmaking, to possible stitching, to the mounting. Eventually something will emerge from the fluff! :)
Hi Ruth, thanks! It's always fun just seeing what happens. I find it's interesting re-visiting old stuff too and sometimes re-igniting old ideas that had been forgotten. Hmmm, yes, the poor flamingo... Maybe one day he will get a head! :)
Hello Lisa - yes, you do use this as a soap. The benefit of a 'wooly jacket' is that young children and people with arthritis can use it easier than a slippery bar of soap. Also, the soap seems to last a bit longer and when it's gone you have a handy little scrubby pad!

Thank you Ann. I too have fond memories of licking strips of coloured paper to make the paper chains at school!
Thank you Marilyn. I reckon Christmas was more enjoyable when it was a simpler and more homemade holiday.
Thank you Ruth. Wouldn't it be great if we could just look at something then blink our eyes as if to close a lens shutter then blue-tooth the image directly from our brain to a jpeg on a computer.
Thank you Tracey - sometimes a forced alteration to a plan turns out for the better!
Thank you Karen - in the end it turned out better than I'd hoped!
Thank you Tracey - I do feel more comfortable when I spend more time thinking than doing and it often, though not always, saves frustration and wool.
Thank you Zed. That really was a challenge - but I enjoyed it!
Thank you Ruth!
Thank you Ellie. You are quite right - I spent more time shuffling paper shapes around on a table top to get my 'pattern' and then colouring in with felt tips over and over to get my colours, than I spent felting!
Hello Elizabeth and thank you for your kind comment.
Thank you Ruth. Yes, it would be a good use of the decorated paper!
Thank you Julie. They are interesting to make and the design possibilities for the covers are endless.
Thank you Marilyn. It was time consuming but great fun to do!
Thank you Karen. The blue version is my favourite too. What a good idea of yours - they would make lovely gifts for creative friends!
Thank you Zed! I bet you could give everyone exactly the same bundle and every piece would be completely different. That's the joy of experimenting and creating isn't it! :)
Thanks Karen! It is a great feeling when you finish a piece that you are happy with and have enjoyed making but it is also good to refill the well with periods of play isn't it!
Thanks Ruth :) There are just so many things to try and the more you do the more things you discover - argh! :) Just when I think I will further develop an idea into a finished piece, something new occurs to me and interrupts that thought process! I'm putting things in the bank for when I'm ready though :)
Hi Marilyn, thank you! I've really just been enjoying the journey for a while and not over thinking the destination. Pretty sure some new fresh work will come at some point soon, I've got plenty of sketches and photos to sort through and use to create some finished pieces, but I keep getting distracted by trying new things. I've currently got no panic monsters (deadlines!) to thrash me into finishing things! I've scribbled down many ideas along the way though :)
Thank you! Yes it is possible and here's a photo tutorial:
