Beautiful Felt

My daughter gave me this beautiful piece of Nuno felt for Christmas. It is a small scarf and is really quite lovely. It is in some of my favourite colours and is so soft to wear. I have made felt but never anything this fine and soft. I would like to have a go at making some but at the moment I am busy dyeing fabric for our debut at the Exeter Quilt Show at the end of March.

I have had stands before at shows in the US and France but haven't ever tried selling at an exhibition in this country so it will be a first for me. Without Graeme encouraging me and giving me loads of support I don't think I would have taken the plunge but having done so I am quite looking forward to it!

My classes at Falmouth Rugby Club have been fantastic and the good Arthur who runs the bar and function room has fallen over backwards to make sure that everything is ideal for us. Lots of room and very light and airy! We are having fun doing a row by row quilt and it is as much a surprise for me as it is for the students as being ill with flu in the new year I didn't get it finished as hoped so I am only a step or two ahead of them. In fact it could almost be called a mystery row by row quilt!

My friend Yvonne and I went shopping today and I ended up buying a lot of fabric! This wasn't the intention but I have some great ideas as to what I can do with it! I just need some time!

  1. Your garden blog is still there, on Blotanical. Last time I checked here all was quiet. Reading backwards I found a new Graeme in your life. I wish you every happiness, and if the garden is sidelined I'll come back to this blog. Love your work!
