Something new

I love to try new crafts and have been meaning to try feltmaking for some time, my sister Gillian had been doing a bit recently and she inspired me to have a go at needle felting while I was staying with her for a couple of days last month. Since then a great opportunity to attend a feltmaking workshop arose through my work at the library, so I went along on Friday and had a fun time trying out wet felting for the first time and spent the day making this bag. The organisers of the workshop are hoping to start holding regular workshops locally so I may well be doing a bit more of this, although I have to say, it was quite hard work - I came home exhausted and it sure didn't do my Tennis Elbow any good!! Thanks to all involved in a fab day.
