My beloved Sam

Well it's certainly windy outside today and heavy rains are forecast all day. My heart goes out to those affected by the floods and make me grateful for my dry house.
I attended another Felting workshop run by the talented Joan Prowse who did a special master class for us all on request.
We all brought a photo of our chosen model and of course I had to choose Sam. Still miss him loads :-(

So first off all we had to create the basic shape of the head and start to build layers up. So grateful that Joan was on hand with expert tips and advice as really wanted to do justice to this

And this is the final version of my felted Sam. I even incorporated some of Sam's hair in his face to make it more special. Just need to go and get it framed now so I can have him near me at all times

And these were all the completed projects. What a amazing and talented bunch of ladies and also friends :-)

So if you fancy learning something new for 2016 I would highly recommend dry felting. I started out with a small flower and now the world is my oyster. Though as hubby says not another hobby lol

Craft retreat

Hi all, well me and the lovely Sandra went away to a craft retreat in Brixham in November

and had a fab weekend with lots of crafting and good company and this is what we made.

Everyone's finished projects

Really good to make different items and to meet new people. Now I need to remember to blog more as it's a great way to record my makes. Hope you all had a good Christmas x
