So no more felting this week. Unfortunately MRI scans on your shoulder leave it too tired to use your arm, never mind using those muscles to card and felt some wool. Hopefully if the good weather will come back I can get on with it next weekend. So for today I am just going to share some randomly, vaguely creative moments from last weekend. We decided to enter a local show with the ponies and have a little fun in the fancy dress and handy pony contests. It was really good fun, with the only disappointment being that the other adults tended to do the more serious competitions and didn't dress up as well! Below are some pictures from the show. Up top are me and Sooty dressed as a fairy riding a unicorn, and Doodle and Helen on the right. In the middle is a picture from Handy Pony contest where I was fishing out tennis balls from a bucket. Then finally my pretty rosettes! 3rd Place Fancy Dress and 1st for Handy Pony.
