Learning a new skill
Hello everyone, I have something new to share with you today. I have always loved felt, I love the texture, the feel, and the look of felt. I am fascinated by the way that it can be created, and have aways wanted to be able to work with it myself in various ways. I drive my Daughter nuts when we go shopping, wanting to buy various bags, and items of clothing made of felt, and my love of felt is a bit of a long running joke between us.
I go to a crochet class once a week, and the lady running the class mentioned last week that there was a needle felting class this week, and did anyone want to go? I jumped at the opportunity, it was too great a chance for me to miss! The class was two hours long, and there were only three of us attending, so we had lots of attention from the tutor. We each had lots of time to practise various techniques on a piece of felt backing; applying various different items, and I even made a flower and a leaf- not bad for a beginner!
Thanks for stopping by, xx
